Hugely popular since their launch, the VADERX rods offer incredible performance and looks for the price.

The slim and lightweight carbon fibre blanks have a progressive casting action and fast tip recovery for long, accurate casts.

Finished with a full Japanese slim shrink handle, custom SONIK reel seat and line clip, lightweight black SIC guides with anti-frap tip and laser etched butt cap, these rods are hard to beat at any price.

    Just purchased 3 of the 10 footers for my syndicate water. Only 4 acres with lots of overhanging trees so no big chucks required. Haven’t used them yet, but initial impressions are of a well made rod with a nice action. Very light, which is what I was after. Looking forward to giving them a try next week, and my daughter can use them when we go to France in July. Seem perfect for what I want them to do.

    Just used my new 10 footer today for some floater fishing. It was a joy to use. A lot of fun to play fish on. Really classy looks. I use Gravity X for my main rods but I think I’ll get another 10 footer to have a pair for smaller waters.

    I’ve had the sk4 rods since day one and no one could change my mind about the rods until I say the Vader x comes out now I have 3 Vader x rods and the marker and spod and I can say with my hand on my heard I wouldn’t change the rods at all but I’ve still got the sk4 rods and will be keeping them, I think sonik is the one for me, I’ve even got 5 Sonik Vader Big pits just to match all the rods, and the net, the only thing I haven’t got yet is the sonik alarms with the light, but will hopefully be getting them soon before I go France in September, but I can say I’ve never had a problem with the rods from casting to fighting a fish and even the sk-tex bivvy is spot on.

    Bought some of the 3.5TC vaders are few months ago, and have to say, the quality, action and price for these is outstanding. Have always been a sonik user, but now it’s all I’ll use. Had some sks rods before these, and these are better imo.

    Had a mate who bought the vader X and couldn’t fault them in anyway for the money since I bought 3 x 3lb tc must say they are the best rods for the money I have ever used and now tempted to buy 3 x 3.5tc for longer range lovely rods cant wait to see the new bite alarms now

    Bought one of these rods in the 12ft 3lb test curve version so that I get the 50mm ring and it is a lovely carp rod for the money, it looks stunning glistening in the sunshine on the bank, The only gripe I have is that the built in line clip is in the wrong place because I keep catching my finger on it while playing a fish, its just annoying as it is distracting from the fight with the fish!

    Got the 12′ 2.75tc and they are brilliant. I’m fairly new to fishing and looked for my first equipment upgrade. I knew that I wanted these, I love the design and the finish. Now I have these they are great. Excellent feel when playing a fish as well as comfortable when casting. Great value for money. Sonik, I’m loving the range!

    Purchased 2 10ft 3lb vader x rods so they would fit in my roof box when I went away in my caravan. Decided to take them to France as stalking rods. Me and a friend used 1 each as a 4th rod and caught fish to 65.5lb on them without any problems at all. For the price they are a superb little rod and I have found myself using them a lot more then I originally intended

    Recently purchased 2 x 2.75lb TC rods to replace my old ABU 2.25lb rods and these rods are absolutely fantastic!
    Nice looking, feel great and handle the fish with a lovely action.
    Excellent value for money!!
