Prestige Carp Porter MK2 Barrow

The Prestige Carp Porter MK2 Fatboy is designed for anglers who take far too much gear with them fishing!

An award-winning carp barrow, the ‘Fatboy’ is one of the most popular in the carp community for a number of reasons.

Built on the success of the original MK2, the Fatboy is refined, and reinforced giving increased strength – and the ability to pack more into it!

Those with an eye for detail will notice corner locking bolts.

This increases the overall weight capacity, as well as a noticeable difference with stability and sturdyness when pushing it.

A crossbar handle eliminates any movement when you begin to lift your gear off it, again, improves stability and avoids tipping.

At the front, an adjustable ‘Y’ bar is well placed for a long, or bulk, rod holdall.

The front support bar can aso be moved into position to support any luggage placed there.

Furthermore, any carp angler will tell you that a barrow needs to be as compact as possible – expecially if you drive a small vehicle where space is at a premium.

Again, and as you can see from the image above – it folds down pretty well!

The wheel can actually be removed to save even more space.

What Other Features Are There?

For anglers with back pain, or just old age – it can be motorised.

There is additional kit that you would need to buy for this – your best bet is taking a look at the official Carp Porter website.

As with all Carp Porter barrows, the side rails can be adjusted which we think is a great feature to have considering how popular wide bedchairs are these days.

We’ve listed the rest of the features below, and spares included with the MK2 Fatboy are:

  • A Spares Kit
  • Bungees
  • Built-in Deluxe Bag with Lid
  • Corner Locking Bolts

Should a part become damaged, or lost, almost every component can be replaced.

All the information about these replacements are found of the Carp Porter website.
