Guess the weight of the Carp and WIN a Fox Rod and Reel!

How do you fancy winning a brand new Fox Warrior ES 12ft - 2.75lb rod and a Fox Stratos FS10000E reel to go with it?

All you have to do is guess the weight of the carp in the picture. Hint: The carp isn't wearing a cap.:)

Take a good look and give me your best guess (one entry per member please, only your first guess will be taken into consideration).

Just post a reply to this thread and give me your best estimate.

The competition ends on the 31 January 2010, so don’t delay and miss out on the chance to win a great prize. One winner will be drawn out of all correct answers.

Good luck!

The Prize Rod and Reel

Fox Warrior ES 12ft - 2.75lb rod

The action of the Warrior ES runs through the tip and middle of the fishing rods although under heavy pressure the blank will continue to bend right through to the butt without locking up. This marginally forward action makes the rod ideal for distance casting and using PVA bags but still makes the rod suitable for safely playing large, lively carp close in.

Fox Stratos FS10000E reel

Identical sizing to the FS10000, the 10000E has a graphite body and spool and is considerably lighter than its fore bearer. The 9 ball bearings and precise gearing create a smooth, reliable reel. 20 coils of line are placed on the spool per linear oscillation creating excellent line-lay and casting performance.

Interesting experiment coming up, guessing by the Delphi Technique.
This is where you take the guesses so far, knock off the top two and bottom two, and average out the remainder.

The average so far is --------- 22lbs 9½ozs

Now the trick is to have another guess and we take the average of those new guesses and then you have another guess for the final Delphi answer - and strangely, it's not usually too far from the truth.
