ESP Terry Hearn Classic 12' 9" 3.25lb (fitted with a 50mm butt ring)
This 'Classic' rod is Terry's favourite fishing rod, it is a rod for the purist and can be used in most fishing situations. Its 12ft 9 inches long and this is Terry's preferred length as he can cast over 100 metres with great accuracy using a wide range of different lead sizes. This rod has a superb fish playing action, no hook pulls at the net with this rod, its a real pleasure to fish with.
Terry has chosen single leg SIC guides because they give an improved balance and the action of the rod could not be better, these rings also give a significant weight saving. The ring positioning means the line follows the same action as the rod, the butt ring is 50mm and the size steadily reduces to a 12mm tip ring. Terrys chose of handle is a slim full length EVA handle that has been finished off with a stainless butt cap and a moulded line clip. The reel seat is a Fuji DPS with a flared collar above it.
