Drennan Acolyte Ultra Feeder
The 9ft Ultra and its stepped-up brother, the Acolyte Plus 9ft Feeder, both allow fish to be played and landed right up close to the angler.
The Acolyte Ultra 10ft Feeder retains a great fish-playing action for anything from roach and skimmers to F1s and even small carp. The shorter length will also help to bring fish closer in for swifter netting. Drennan team of experts have spent plenty of time perfecting a family of super-slim tips that blend in perfectly with the blank.
The Acolyte Ultra 10ft comes with 1oz, 1.5oz and 2oz push-in tips as standard. Usefully, these will interchange between the entire Acolyte Feeder family.
The Ultra 11ft Feeder (3.35m) length makes it a versatile, all-round choice for a wide variety of river and stillwater applications. The rod is just as at home when catching F1s and small to medium sized carp as it is for winding in bream and silverfish. A smooth, parabolic playing action really helps to cushion lunges from fish of all sizes.
This rod is ideal for short to medium range work up to 40 metres and feeders up to 45g (1.5oz) but greater distances can certainly be achieved in the right hands and with carefully balanced tackle.
The blank of the Ultra 12ft Feeder is super slim but, importantly, maintains enough backbone to cast long distances with greater accuracy. It also has a great parabolic fish-playing action to cushion fish of all sizes, from roach and skimmers to F1s and small carp. The extra length of the 12ft model will be particularly favoured by bream anglers on stillwaters. It will also enable river anglers to keep the rod nice and high to reduce the amount of line affected by the flow.
The rod’s two-piece construction ensures that it can also be quickly and easily folded in half for ease of transportation in a Rod Case or Sleeve.
A handy pair of Neoprene rod socks and a retaining band are also included to help protect such a quality item.
