The Greys Prodigy GT4 is the fourth generation of rod from the Prodigy range, with a blank that has been completely redesigned to incorporate a high-modulus woven carbon fibre. This is to meet the demands of modern carpers, and ensure that its performance is spectacular. The GT4 has a super-smooth and progressive action, yet still holds a lot of power, so leads and PVA bags can be launched impressive distances with ease. These rods are very practical, and power and control are balanced perfectly, so even at close quarters, fish can be played comfortably. There are eight different models in the range, from 10ft 3lb TC to 13ft 3.5lb TC, and all are cosmetically stunning. The lower tip and butt section comes in full 3k carbon weave, with Greys’ Carbon Armour blank finish for added protection. They have sleek Fuji DPS-18 reel seats with stealth-black anodised collars, and a slim shrink-wrap butt with laser-etched butt cap that finishes the rod perfectly, giving the brilliant performance of the GT4 a suitably beautiful finish.
