One time barbel record holder Martin Bowler is among the most respected and consistent barbel anglers, and specified the exact semi-through action and make up of this rod. His extensive testing programme on a variety of rivers provided this particular blank was the most efficient and versatile, handling anything form precise presentation at close range through a variety of feeder work to far bank fishing on rivers such as the Kennet and the Avon. With a powerful semi through action it is ideally suited to modern barbel fishing tactics where the capture of double figure fish is a real prospect on almost all British rivers. It is suited to mainlines of 10-12lb and will comfortably handle leads up to 3oz.
The high modulus carbon blank has a dark platinum finish with a chequered weave pattern, graphics on the underside with a 22inch full cork handle, screw down reel seat and engraved butt cap. 8 quality SiC guides comprise just one 20mm internal diameter line guide on the butt section through to a 6mm tip ring, allowing stop knots and line debry to pass through freely. The top 6 inches of the tip are white for easier visibility in low light conditions, and the rod is fitted with a single Drennan Isotope.
Complete with a padded and embroidered rod sleeve for easy transportation of made up rods. Three Velcro fastners, and fill in sleeve lables also provided.
