ESP Terry Hearn Classic 12′ 9″ Rods use the latest high modulus carbon cloths, reinforced with a tough, durable woven overwrap.
ESP Terry Hearn Classic 12′ 9″ Rods is the ‘purist’ model and the rod Terry uses by choice for most of his fishing. The iconic 12′ 9″ length is preferred by Terry as the extra length improves casting distance and accuracy on a wide range of leads to distances of 100 metres plus.
The Classic has a perfect forward action and superb fish playing response, providing tactile feedback into the hand and arm. It’s a pleasure to fish!
The single leg SiC guides have been selected to reduce weight, improve action and balance and feature ceramics to Terry’s request. They are perfectly positioned tapering from a 40mm Butt guide to a 12mm Tip ring.
The slim, full-length EVA handle has a flared collar above the Fuji DPS reel seat. Machine stainless butt cap and moulded ESP line clip.
The Classic 12’ 9” 3.25lb (50mm) is built on the blank Terry uses for most of his fishing with the addition of the distance enhancing 50mm ring set. The iconic 12’9” length with its forward action is preferred by Terry as the extra length improves casting distance and accuracy with a wide range of lead sizes as well as offering a superior playing action and improved line control.
The 12′ 9″ 3.5lb (50mm) Distance encompasses the iconic length and action of the benchmark 3.25lb 40mm model but with extra reserves of power, particularly in the butt section, to provide a faster, more steely blank. This additional power along with the 50mm to 16mm rings make a serious casting machine and distances of 150m+ can be achieved. The rod will handle a wide range of leads and big PVA bags can be fished with confidence. In spite of its power, this rod retains excellent fish playing properties and enough shock absorption in the tip to prevent hook pulls.
