The range has been designed principally for reel lines from 2lb 8oz to 4lb+, which is roughly 0.12mm to 0.18mm diameter monofilament. The blanks feels very rigid and have a light, crisp action with little or no bounce for really excellent line and float control. At the same time, the tip action is soft enough to act as a gentle shock absorber, cushioning the strike and preventing hook pulls. This allows ultra-light hooklengths below 1lb (0.08mm) to be fished with confidence on everything from silverfish to F1s and smaller carp.
Paired with a compact float fish reel, the rods tend to sit up in the hand at an angle above horizontal, making them a joy to fish with all day.
The delightful little 11ft (3.35m) rod is ideal for small lakes and rivers and absolutely perfect for platform fishing on commercial fisheries.
The superb 12ft (3.66m) rod is ideal for small lakes and rivers and absolutely perfect for platform fishing on commercial fisheries.
The 13ft, 14ft and 15ft models are particularly suitable for river fishing, as the crisp tip sections offer supreme line control with stick floats, wagglers and bolo floats. The extra length of the three-piece rods are also a great asset when tackling deeper swims.
Despite being 15ft the super slim and featherweight blank still only weighs approximately 5 3/4oz (163g), which makes it lighter and better balanced than many manufacturers’ 13ft models!
The 15ft Acolyte Ultra is designed with the connoisseur in mind who wants the very best when it comes to long float rods!
