Drennan Acolyte Plus Feeder RodsDrennan
The Acolyte Plus Feeder rods are super slim and lightweight with reserves of power.
It is more powerful than the Acolyte Ultra 10ft Feeder and set to be a popular choice on commercial fisheries where big fish are the target but only a modest cast is required.
The 10ft Plus is great for hard-fighting fish like tench, chub, F1s and match-sized carp. The smooth, parabolic playing action still copes really well when smaller fish are hooked. The relatively short 10ft (3.05m) length really helps to bring fish much closer in for ease of netting.
The slim, crisp and responsive blank slices through the air, enhancing casting accuracy. Stand-off SiC guides also aid smooth line travel. It also comes with three super-slim, push-in carbon Feeder Tips of 1.5oz, 2oz and 2.5oz that blend perfectly with the blank.
This rod is ideal when matched with feeders up to 45g (1.5oz) and will comfortably cope with ranges up to 40 metres. Greater distances can be achieved with balanced tackle and a good casting technique.
As with all the rods in the Acolyte Feeder family, the 10ft Plus folds away into two even length sections. This allows it to be conveniently transported in a Rod Sleeve or Rod Case and assembled in seconds. Neoprene rod socks and a rod-retaining band are also included to help keep everything secure in transit.
The Acolyte Plus 10ft Feeder is a compact and deceptively powerful rod with a beautiful fish playing action. An ideal choice for modern bomb and feeder fishing techniques.
The Drennan Acolyte Plus 11ft Feeder is a super slim, lightweight rod with a stepped-up action for situations where slightly more strength and power are required.
The 11ft (3.35m) length is the perfect all-round choice for ease of both casting and playing fish on a wide variety of venues. The rod has more power than the 11ft Ultra Feeder, which makes it an ideal choice for quality fish like bream, tench, chub, carp and F1s. However, the smooth, parabolic playing action still copes really well when reeling in smaller silverfish.
The slim, crisp and responsive blank cuts through the air and offers optimum casting accuracy. The cast is further enhanced by stand-off SiC guides that are deliberately spaced to help the line travel through them as smoothly as possible.
This rod is ideal when matched to feeders up to 60g (2oz) and will easily cope with ranges up to 50 metres. Greater distances are achievable with sensibly balanced tackle and a good casting technique.
The 11ft Plus comes with three push-in carbon tips of 2oz, 2.5oz and 3oz. These super-slim tips have been designed to blend perfectly with the rod blank.
The rod can be neatly folded away into two sections, so it can be carried to the bankside in a Rod Sleeve or Rod Case and assembled in seconds. A useful set of Neoprene rod socks and a rod-retaining band are also included to help keep everything secure and protected in transit.
The Acolyte Plus 11ft Feeder has taken almost two years of field-testing, refining and perfecting by our dedicated team of experts. The result is a rod that casts like a dream and allows you to play fish with confidence.
