Sonik Introduction We are now into our sixth year at Sonik and in our eyes, six years of solid progress providing exceptional kit to the carp community. If you’re an existing Sonik user then thanks for your ongoing support; if you are reading this before picking up a rod then welcome to the Sonik team. We’re pretty confident you will be joining us. Our confidence is based on our own knowledge of what constitutes good product, the feedback and input from our pro-team, valued dealers and, most importantly, our customers. Taking on board all this feedback and translating it for use in our design process has been a key factor in our success. We will continue to listen. For 2013 our focus remains firmly on rods and a small selection of well-designed accessories and tackle. All development work is done in the UK by an experienced team of designers who combine their own expertise with market feedback and the input of leading carp anglers from the UK and mainland Europe – some of which are shown to the right. Manufacture utilises the latest materials and technology, executed by some of the premier cra smen in the industry. The result is a range of rods leading the way for performance, specification and value. The 2013 line-up comprises of four key ranges, each of which has been extensively tested by our team of consultants to ensure they exceed expectations and stand the test of time. From targeting fish at close range on small to medium-sized lakes, to tackling monster waters requiring extreme distance, there is a rod to suit. Our resident anorak describes his chosen vocation of delivering top drawer carp rods as ‘an effective marriage of art and science’. This translates to the use and knowledge of the latest carbon fibre materials, resin systems, taper profiles and manufacturing techniques, the ‘science’. The art is to then understand how this translates to great performance on the water. A rod too stiff and powerful may be able chuck a lead a long way in the right hands, but will be no good when playing a fish due to hook pulls. Rod tips which fail to cushion the strain exerted on the hook hold in the so mouth of a fish won’t deliver to the net. Similarly, a rod that’s too so and lacks power in the butt section will only frustrate when trying to reach long distance. Tip recovery in the cast is also key to overall performance. A rod that continues to flex for too long aer the cast will result in reduced distance and accuracy as the line comes off the reel. This is why we place so much importance in ensuring all our rods are extensively tried and tested by world class anglers who provide invaluable feedback and suggestions during the development process. We select our team from around the world to allow testing on the widest possible variety of waters and conditions. This way you can be confident all Sonik rods are tried and tested for performance and durability.
