Fox Warriors 12ft 3.25 Tc

I have been testing out these Fox Warrior + Full Cork x 3 Carp Rods  for the past 2 months.  Duncan at Tackle Fanatics had kindly sent me.  I am very pleased with them.


They cast extremely well, I have used a range of techniques from bag fishing to short range and long range fishing, from 2 oz to 4 oz leads, big and tiny bags.  They have performed outstandingly.




I have played a fair few fish perfectly well.  I am very much looking forward to giving them a go on my favourite margin spots.


This will not be until mid September time.

I really love the cork handle and I must say, I had forgotten how much more comfortable it feels to hold them.  The line clip is a very nice feature and it holds the line nicely with no damage to the line.

Overall thoughts 

The rod has been built exclusively for Tackle Fanatics to their exacting specifications.  It’s the perfect rod and has been built on the award winning Warrior S blank.  The blank benefits from a low rein carbon composition that produces a super slim and is lightweight,which rivals others who are three times the price.  The rod has a progressive action that gives the user a superb fish playing action while still retaining a powerful backbone, to assist in long distance accurate casts.  The matt finish with the black gloss whippings, makes the rod look stunning and also has a line friendly line clip.  For the price, this rod will rival any other in its price range and beyond.

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
