In recent years Fox International’s reputation for producing carp fishing reels that are not only eye-catching but also highly functional and reliable has grown from strength to strength. The advantage that Fox have over most other reel manufacturers is that they actually design their reels from scratch and can therefore produce a product specifically for carp fishing, unfortunately many reels still on the market are designed for sea fishing and then marketed to the carp angler with a few aesthetic tweaks. Following the great success of Fox’s magnesium 12000XT and graphite 12000S and FS reels they were regularly inundated with requests for a smaller sized reel, that would balance better with rods of 2.75 and 3lb test curve. Many anglers love the look of a 12000 reel but really didn’t need something that big and so after two years of research and development the company are now ready to launch the stunning, matt black, understated FX11, which can be described as a scaled-down big pit reel. Fox were keen, however, to make their downsized big pit reel an all-rounder and thanks to the super-slow oscillation giving impeccable line lay you can comfortably put the FX11 onto your higher test curve casting rods and put rigs well over 150yds should you need to. In addition to the super-slow oscillation the FX11 also features a Quick Clutch on the front of the spool, allowing you to go from tight enough to cast to loose-enough to get a run with just one and half turns of the clutch – if you make it any less than this you will lose clutch definition.
