This superbly powerful rod is capable of long range casting with feeders up to 3 oz (85g). With the right technique, distances approaching 80m 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 England Feeder Team Manager Dean Barlow, Drennan have extensively field tested and modified various Acolyte Distance Feeder prototypes in the UK and Ireland.

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!

Optimum mono reel lines are 6lb to 10lb (2.7kg to 4.5kg) or 0.08 to 0.12mm braid. The oversized guides help with the use of shock leaders to gain distance required. The rod is supplied with 3oz, 4oz and 5oz carbon tips, which are also available separately with 2.5oz test curves.

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

Features:

  • 12ft (3.65m)
  • Two pieces construction
  • Crisp and responsive blank for optimum casting accuracy
  • Ideal for long ranges up to 80m
  • Great with bombs and feeders up to 85g
  • Best matched with reel lines from 6lb to 10lb (2.7kg to 4.5kg) or 0.08 to 0.12mm braid
  • SiC guides
  • Fuji DPS 'screw-down' reel seat
  • Full cork handle
  • Engraved butt cap
  • Supplied with fine 3oz, 4oz and 5oz Drennan Distance Tips
  • Drennan Distance Tips feature larger guides to allow shock leader knots to easily pass through
