KNX stands for Kevin Nash Xtra, replacing the very popular Nash H-Gun brand, this one was introduced to get your carp fishing off to a flying start and those early big fish under your belt. And it’s an extensive range.

It features almost everything you need to get you out there and fishing from a bedchair that’s light enough to pick up with one finger to a shelter, chairs, rods in different price points, luggage and carp care kit.

It’s good quality gear at a very affordable price, and there’s no reason why a newcomer to carping investing in it, wouldn’t still be bagging on it, seasons later.

Designed to impress especially for the price, it’s also user-friendly and practical.

Highlights include the KNX rods, in a range of useful test curves covering everything from floater and finesse work to thumping out heavy payloads, including a spod and marker design. Nash have also included some 10 ft KNX Colts a very useful starter rod for a junior.

There’s even a Sleep System under the KNX banner to ensure you’re comfortable overnight.

And for building that fish handling confidence as your PB grows Nash have released some KNX Elevator Cradles, to support fish safely off the desk. There’s even a deluxe one for whackers.

The KNX kit is a good range, the rods start at just £39.99!

Price: Rods from £39.99. Sleep System £189.99. Cradles from £59.99.

Manufacturers’ Comment

“An incredible success through 2017 the Nash KNX brand is where to look when your carp angling gets serious and big fish become your focus.

“KNX products offer some of the top features from premium Nash tackle but at great prices and with the renowned Nash quality.

“KNX Rods deliver the performance for any venue and any size carp, from 12 ft 2.75 lb to the 3.5 lb with 50 mm ringing for distance fishing. Plus a useful 4.5 lb test curve Spod/Marker combo that casts heavy Spombs or transmits accurate sensation from the lakebed whilst feature finding.

“There are options for both abbreviated and full shrink grips, both with a class matte black finish. Prices range from £69.99 to £89.99.

“By popular demand we released the 10 foot KNX Colt to the UK market, although initially aimed at the European boat fishing market they have been brilliantly received as starter carp rods for youngsters. Test curves of 3 and 3.5 lb offer great performance in an easy to handle package, priced at just £39.99.

“If you’re new to night and session fishing check out the KNX Sleep system. Using the proven Nash design with a four-season fleece lined duvet on the strong KNX bed frame with adjustable legs and mud feet it’s a cheaper, lighter and more practical solution to a traditional bed and sleeping bag. Expect to pay £189.99.

“With such emphasis on carp care at busy fisheries the KNX Elevator Cradles are volume sellers, bringing support and protection to carp of any size.

“Lightweight and with locking leg pins and Velcro tabs to keep them flat when transported, the Elevator is a popular choice in the UK, comfortably holding carp to 40 lb, the Elevator Deluxe has a larger footprint for foreign holidays or venues with catfish and giant carp. Expect to pay £59.99 and £64.99.

“The KNX range kits you out literally from the ground upwards and a mid-season launch of smart black extending bank sticks has been hugely popular. Auger points and clever twist lock compression cams remove the need for fiddly thumbscrews and they look seriously carpy in the vogue matte black. Prices are £8.49, £9.49 and £10.49 for 9, 12 and 15-inch sticks.

“And the range continues to expand for 2018.”
