Product Description

The 12ft Acolyte Distance Feeder rod is designed for fishing at long range and is capable of casting big feeders while retaining its fish playing action. This superbly powerful rod is capable of long range casting with feeders up to 3oz (85g). With the right technique, distances approaching 80m can be achieved with remarkable accuracy.

The finished model successfully combines the normal feeder rod requirements of bite detection, sensitivity, fish playing feel and balance with ultra long range casting. It also represents fantastic value for money compared to other models, some of which are more than twice the price!

Optimum mono reel lines are 6lb to 10lb (2.7kg to 4.5kg) or 0.08 to 0.12mm braid. The oversized guides help with the use of shock leaders to gain distance required. The rod is supplied with 3oz, 4oz and 5oz carbon tips, which are also available separately with 2.5oz test curves.

 

The 14ft Acolyte Distance Feeder rod is designed for fishing at ultra long range and is capable of casting big feeders while retaining its fish playing action. This superbly powerful rod is capable of ultra long range casting with big feeders up to 4.5oz (125g). With the right technique, distances approaching 100m can be achieved with remarkable accuracy. This rod is the perfect tool for fishing big rivers where you are casting big feeders into heavy flow and need to keep as much line out of the water as possible.

Many other distance feeder models end up imbalanced and over-gunned, and in some cases look more like beach casters than feeder rods! As a result, they lose tactile contact and feel when playing fish and result in more hook-pulls.

Martin Bowler points out this is more than just an ultra long range feeder rod; it is excellent for big fish, big feeders and its 14ft length provides improved line management in heavy flow.

Optimum mono reel lines are 6lb to 10lb (2.7kg to 4.5kg) or 0.08 to 0.12mm braid. The oversized guides allow for shock leaders up to 12lb. The rod is supplied with 3oz, 4oz and 5oz carbon tips, which are also available separately with 2.5oz and 6oz test curves.

Please note: The spare Drennan Distance Tips are exclusive to these models and do not fit other Acolyte feeder rods outside the Distance Feeder Range.
