It can be difficult and even sometimes stressful when deciding on the best carp fishing tackle to use. This is even more so if you are not familiar with the basic characteristics of this type of gear. There are distinct factors that are significant in how your gear will handle carp. These factors include the test curve of your rod, the lifting power of your rod and the action of your rod.

The Test Curve of Your Rod

There is a specific amount of weight that will make your rod curve at a 90 degree angle down to the end of the rod, this is known as the test curve. In other words it helps to actually measure the amount of firmness your rod has. The weight of the carp will determine the rod test curve you should have for example: if the carp weighs in between 3 to 8 pounds then you need to have a test curve on your carp fishing tackle of at least 8 pounds of pressure. If you do not have the pressure as it should be you can run the risk of breaking your rod. For instance, if the test curve is lower then the weight of the carp, you may end up with a broken rod.

Rod Action

When you talk about the bend ability of your rod, you are talking about the action of the rod. You will have a fast action to your rod if the bend is at the top 1/3 of the rod. If your rod is prone to bending at the very top then the action i said to be at a medium pace. Lastly, if your rob tends to bend near the bottom part then the action is said to be slow.

Rod Performance

Both the strength and the lifting power of your rod helps to determine the performance of the carp fishing tackle. it is important to have the strength of your line proportionate to your rods lifting power. If you have a heavy line and your lifting power is light, you will find that the rod may break on you just as if you have a light line with a rod that has heavy lifting power. The type of water that you use your carp fishing tackle also plays a huge factor in the performance of your rod. For instance, if you are fishing in murky or turbid water, you will need to have a high lifting power in your rod where as if the water is clear, you can go with a lighter lifting power.
