Rod lengths range from 9ft, up to 13ft. Anything under 12ft is considered ideal for either stalking carp, or fishing in tight, confined spaces. A carp rod of 13ft is better suited to the larger waters – where casting long distances is required.
Therefore, what is test curve on a rod? Put simply, test curve is the weight required to bring the tip of the rod to a 90-degree angle to the butt while the butt is held horizontally. Imagine a rod clamped into a horizontal position by its handle. If you attach a weight close to the tip ring, the rod will begin to curve.
At the same time, can I use a carp rod for beach fishing?
The carp rods will be fine for summer beach fishing so long as it's not rough - just the job for pushing out a 3 oz grip lead and bait. Good for float fishing for wrasse too. At a push, you can use them for spinning but they're likey to be a bit to long and heavy to cast with repeatedly without getting tired.

A 3lb-test-curve rod is now classed as an all-rounder, with 3.5lb and 3.75lb test curves more suited to casting long distances. A 2.75lb or 2.5lb rod will be softer and arguably more fun but won't have huge casting power.
Feeder rods are also known as quiver tip rods, because they come supplied with between one and three quiver tips. A feeder rod is used for fishing with bait on the bottom, without the use of a float, so are a great tool for carp fishing.
