THE 12FT 3LB CHAPMANS ANGLING STILLWATER BPX ROD ticked a lot of boxes for Duncan. ‘All the rods tested were good, and it was difficult to pick a winner. The Stillwater BPX carp rod featured everything needed in a carp rod as well as retaining an enjoyable, balanced feel, along with an amazing price tag,’ he reported. This 17 lb common (pictures below, right), plus four more doubles helped Duncan put the Stillwater BPX through its paces. ‘It was a sheer joy to play fish on,’ he added.
