The Purist BX1 Barbel rod combines remarkable value with understated, classic cosmetics and class-leading actions. The Purist BX1 is a great choice for anglers on a tight budget. If you are an angler looking for a specialist barbel rod on a relatively tight budget, you’ll struggle to find anything to match the Purist BX1.
The superb fish-playing actions are complemented by the classy graphics, delivering a rod that fishes as good as it looks. At the heart of the Purist BX1 Barbel is a full carbon blank. This has been developed to combine the power required to cope with hard fighting fish and casting large leads and feeders, with a finely tuned tip to enhance bite detection and compensate for powerful lunges, especially at close range.
The mid-range 12ft 2.25lb is a great all-rounder and all models are fitted with a classic full cork handle, custom DPS reel seat and Shimano Hardlite guides which reinforce the remarkable value. As a final touch of class the tip has a short white section for better visibility and the handle is finished with an alloy butt cap.
