Review: Carp Spirit Monster Barrow

The Carp Spirit Monster Barrow comes under the beady eye of Angler’s Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He’s the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: a carp fishing barrow with a large carrying capacity.

Specifications: takes loads in excess of 100 kg; a second wheel is available to convert it into a twin-wheel system, for extra-heavy loads; removable handles and wheels; fold flat design; extendable front for long rod holdalls; reinforced aluminium construction; oversized tyres with a deep tread; a carryall is included for extra storage; four hook tensioners to help secure your load; mudfeet; non-slip rubber grips on the handle.

My verdict: this is a ‘serious’ barrow for carrying all of your kit, something that will certainly benefit session carpers.

The design is based on the footprint of a folded, eight-leg bedchair, to keep the load in the centre. You can extend the barrow at the front end for carrying longer holdalls, and when loaded the barrow remains stable and balanced.

I also like the fact that you can buy an extra wheel, which enables you to chop and change between a single and twin-wheel system, to suit the type of terrain that you’re pushing the barrow over.

The twin-wheel system is particularly useful for carrying heavier loads over flat terrain.

If you buy this barrow, I recommend that you purchase the extra wheel kit, too, as you won’t regret it. Besides, it saves you buying a separate twin-wheel barrow in the future.

This barrow looks as if it’s been designed by a carper, as it has been well thought out.

Prices: £164.99; Spare Wheel Kit £44.99.
