Drennan Acolyte Distance Feeder 13ft

The 13ft Acolyte Distance Feeder rod is designed for fishing at long
range and is capable of casting big feeders while retaining its fish
playing action.

This superbly powerful rod is capable of ultra long range casting with
big feeders up to 3 ½ oz (100g). With the right technique, distances
approaching 100m can be achieved with remarkable accuracy.

Many other distance feeder models end up imbalanced and over-gunned, and
in some cases look more like beach casters than feeder rods! As a
result, they lose tactile contact and feel when playing fish and result
in more hook-pulls.

Working with five times World Champion Alan Scotthorne and top
international match anglers Steve Hemingray, Darren Davies and Dean
Barlow, we have extensively field tested and modified various Acolyte
Distance Feeder prototypes in the UK and Ireland over a period of more
than two years.

The finished model successfully combines the normal feeder rod
requirements of bite detection, sensitivity, fish playing feel and
balance with ultra long range casting. It also represents fantastic
value for money compared to other models, some of which are more than
twice the price!

Martin Bowler points out this is more than just an ultra long range
feeder rod, it is excellent for big fish, big feeders and its 13ft
length provides improved line management in heavy flow.

Optimum mono reel lines are 6lb to 10lb (2.7kg to 4.5kg) or 0.08 to
0.12mm braid. The rod is supplied with 3oz, 4oz and 5oz carbon tips,
which are also available separately with 2.5oz and 6oz test curves.

Please note: The spare Drennan Distance Tips are exclusive to this model
and do not fit other Acolyte feeder rods.
