Depends more on the total weight on the end of your line and how far you want to throw it than size of carp, within reason of course.

You said earlier you aren't fishing for 20s.yet? You can't pick and choose what you catch lol. If there's 40s in the lake then you'd need to be geared up for them. But will be very over gunned for doubles

Still very over gunned for smaller carp mate. It's worth a look on eBay or Facebook for something used that's in budget and a bit lighter, also have a look at the sonik range. They are generally very good value for money

Far too heavy for a beginner chap. Get something more along the 2-2.75lb TC. The tackle box range mentioned will be hard to beat

I did mention thatís why I have a budget for the rod itself as I need the extra money for tackle and bits and bobs such as the net etc

Iíd slow down a bit. What about a net and mat? You canít fish without those.
You want to master feeder and bomb fishing. Youíll get a reasonable feeder rod, reel, line, net, mat and a few terminal tackle bits for that £150 and learn a lot more than sitting behind some 2 Bob Ďcarpí set up.
The smaller fish you want to learn with are much much easier to catch this way or float fishing too.

I have to be honest with you mate. You are not going to get a decent reliable 2 rod set up for £60 if you are buying new. Can be done second hand but you really need to know your stuff. Easy to get ripped off. Good luck and tight lines

Mate stay away from that, when I started i ordered a kit with everything to get started, the kit had the same rods and same reels you show on the link.
The rods i would say that could be ok for a start but not for a long time but them reels wont really land a mid double !
Like other people said before,there are way better options for not much money and you wont be having the need to upgrade "soon".
I still use some of the NGT stuff from that kit from a few years ago, landing net ( will use until it breaks ) and carryall bag still on top condition !
I would say luggage etc NGT is decent but anything else I've tried and simple doesnt work
