Fox Warrior + Marker Spod Duo (S&M) – 4.5lb – Review

Fox Warrior + Marker Spod Duo (S&M) – 4.5lb Review


I have been out fishing over the weekend and I must say I am extremely happy with this rod (when used as a spod/spomb rod).  It was very easy to bait up my spot and I have done a small video for you to watch.  This shows the rod in action.  I only ever use a large spomb for my fishing and this rod can handle this with no difficulties at all.  I can imagine that with the small spomb a great distance can be achieved.  I may just have to buy one and give it a go sometime.  I still need to play about with the rod as a marker rod, which I will do in the next few weeks.  I am just enjoy using the rod as a spomb rod at the moment but I’m sure that it will be perfect for that job as well.




Full Spec


Exclusive to Tackle Fanatics

Slim & lightweight

50mm ringing pattern

Ideal for both spod and marker work

Fox Warrior + Marker Spod Duo (S&M)  was designed by Tackle Fanatics as a versatile application rod that can be used for both spod and marker work. The powerful 4.5lb test curve is perfect for marker work as it can cast huge leads and floats at extreme range.  Its stiff nature also assists in finding and identifying features as more traditional markers rods tend to absorb the sensations transmitted down the line.  The S&M also doubles up as a spod rod which is capable of accurately punching spods and Spombs out to distance marks with complete ease.

About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
