Drennan Acolyte Plus Float
Stepped-up versions of the existing 13ft and 14ft Acolyte and designed to Alan Scotthorne’s exacting requirements. Both still feature super-slim blanks but pack extra strength to punch out larger floats and control quality fish like carp, tench and chub easier.
They are perfectly matched with reel lines from 4lb to 6lb+ and hooklengths from 3lb (0.13mm) to 5lb (0.16mm). A forgiving tip section combined with a progressive middle helps to absorb every lunge while keeping hook pulls to an absolute minimum. Weighing on average, just 150g and 156g respectively, these rods are a joy to fish with all day!
The Compact Acolyte Plus 13ft has an almost identical action to the standard three-piece Acolyte Plus 13ft. The unique way it is constructed actually means it is fractionally better balanced. It also has a super-slim blank with reserves of power to cast larger floats and subdue quality fish like carp, tench and chub with ease.
The slim, lightweight and exceptionally balanced 15ft Acolyte Plus is ideal for rivers and deep stillwaters where quality fish are expected. It is slightly more powerful than the 15ft Acolyte Ultra and a great choice for casting and controlling heavier floats. It is particularly suitable for medium to large wagglers, stick floats, Avons and bolo floats. The extra length offers excellent line control while the crisp and responsive tip connects with bites with lightning speed and efficiency.
The Acolyte Plus 15ft is best matched with reel lines from 4lb to 6lb+ (1.8kg to 3kg+) and hooklengths from 5lb (0.16mm) down to 2.5lb (0.12mm). A very worthy addition to the exquisite Acolyte family and designed for anglers who want the very best!
