DRENNAN ACOLYTE CARP WAGGLER RODS. The Acolyte Carp Waggler 11ft is a great choice for short to medium range work on commercial fisheries with wagglers and pellet wagglers up to around 10g.
A short 11ft rod is more convenient for repeatedly casting out shallow float setups. It also offers exceptional control when playing fish close in to speed up the netting process. A shorter setup can also be a big asset in tight swims.
The super-slim blank weighs just 4 1/2oz (128g) and is matched perfectly to reel lines from 4lb to 6lb+ (1.8kg to 3kg+). It has enough backbone to accurately punch out a waggler and is crisp enough to quickly pick up line on the strike. Crucially, it also has a progressive playing action that deals with quality fish and soaks up every lunge.
The two-piece construction means that it can be left made up in a Rod Sleeve and conveniently assembled or packed away in seconds.
The Acolyte Carp Waggler 12ft is the perfect tool for general float fishing on commercial fisheries. This versatile rod can be effectively used at close range with small to medium wagglers and pellet wagglers but can also be employed much further out with loaded floats right up to 20g.
It is best complimented with reel lines from 4lb to 7lb+ (1.8kg to 3.2kg) while the super-slim, high modulus carbon blank weighs just 4 3/4oz (135g). It has a progressive playing action that soaks up any sudden lunges during the fight and offers plenty of control close in at the all-important netting stage. It belies plenty of power for subduing quality fish from 2lb to 10lb with ease.
