Product availability update - Coral Viper
June 26, 2011, 10:14:28 AM
I'm pleased to give you an update on one of the most popular product in Carpenter rod range.
 
Coral Viper CV79/40 will be available though Australian Carpenter retailers shortly.
 
CV79/40 rods we brought this time are in slightly different design and I'll try to shoot some photos later.
 
p.s. please note that Carpenter has stopped using 'SHP' on model name and this CV79/40 is in no difference to previous CV79/40-SHP.
 
Cheers,
Tak

CV79/40 is popular model and you should be able to get it in your region when Carpenter runs next production. If you would like rod in this particular design, Fish Head should be able to assist you.

Hi James,

I don't have on either but below links are with prototype CV (2 inches longer - I think they stop testing this rod) and you will get some idea.

Hi James

I probably have more, but here are a ready-to-hand picture of my CV79/40, all loaded up.

And in this thread, there is a video and a couple of of images of Andy Rowe landing a c.45 kg GT in Maluku with his CV 79/40:

Ben, the correct way to do this is to order the rods at Fishhead.
If it swims; I want to catch it!

Fishhead must be one of the few places on earth to have stock of this rod at the moment!

Fish Head is able to supply the Coral Viper CV79/40 ----- but not for much longer - if you have ever thought of getting one then don't leave it for to long - we are almost sold out and I don't know when the next production run for the CV79/40 will be.

Just phone the boys on +61 7 3207 9965 or email [email protected]

This link shows some nice bend on the CV also.....

IMGA0010.MP4

I put my CV into the handle from my SP78EXH and it gives a little more length as I am tall, 194cm.

Tak, if you happen to be in touch with Konish San tell him I would love to purchase one of the handles off the +2 inch proto-type CV's in the videos you posted or even a version of the proto-type +2" CV. I have long been hoping that Carpenter would bring out a 7'11" version of the CV 79/40 since they first came out, it's my favorite GT rod of all time.

Andrew ,

Gonna cost you approx 1/3 the price of a whole rod for the handle alone , Takai-san bought one for his DJ83ML and the cost from Carpenter was around US$. 350.- sent to Takai-san house in Hokkaido . I think your SP78EX-H handle will serve you well at the moment and spend the money for other items .
