Free Spirit are always keen to test out new technologies in rod design and in the last 18 months or so one has particularly stood out. The material in question allowed Free Spirit to build very strong slim blanks yet with very efficient recovery that were reminiscent of the now legendary Hi 'S' Range.

The new S-Lite range of rods have been rigorously tested by the team at Free Spirit and have been casting huge distances testament to the loading response and fast recovery this new material lends to the blanks.

However, as with all Free Spirit rods the finish has to be right too and the new S Lite range features a stunning weave as well as the usual 'Perdurable' finish. To compliment the 40t low resin ultra slim blank is a new reel seat - the Fuji VSS17. This features open sides, allowing a carbon sleeve as the same material of the blank to be fitted. The guides also feature black frames with all fittings stainless steel for durability.

Free Spirit S Lite Carp Rods

Periodically new materials become available and as we have seen in the past, Free Spirit are always keen to test these to understand their properties and potential benefits. Their philosophy is to thoroughly push these benefits, providing they have someting special to offer that will stand the test of time. Over the past 18 months or so Free Spirit have accessed three new carbons and were very impressed with the performance and properties of a material with the code C626. This material enabled them to build very strong slim blanks, yet with very efficient recovery, reminiscent of the Hi-S range - they were nearly even called the 'baby Hi-S' but instead, the name S Lite was settled upon. However, don't be fooled that these aren't capable of extreme ranges as in testing they were casting huge distances, testament to the loading response and fast recovery this material lends to the blanks. The slimness of the blank helps with this but the carbon has to be high quality not to feel tip heavy.

As with all Free Spirit rods the finish has to be right too and the new S Lite range features a stunning weave as well as the usual 'Perdurable' finish. To compliment the 40t low resin ultra slim blank is a new Fuji reel seat - VSS17, which features open sides allowing a carbon sleeve as the same material of the blank to be fitted. This helps with transmissions through the seat to the hand. Guides feature black frames since the blank has a dark finish and all fittings are stainless steel for durability.

A word about casting versions of the S Lite range - we have used the 'ive name for both the 12' and 13' rods which we don't do lightly! This was since the performance and feel was so close to that of the Hi-S'ives, which have become top sellers and offers great casting but with exceptional fish playing - the S Lite Ives offer very similar performance at a significantly reduced price.
