Feeder Rods

£179.00
10ft, Drennan
The Acolyte Plus 10ft Feeder rod is super slim and lightweight with reserves of power.
It is more powerful than the Acolyte Ultra 10ft Feeder and set to be a popular choice on commercial fisheries where big fish are the target but only a modest cast is required.
The 10ft Plus is great for hard-fighting fish like tench, chub, F1s and match-sized carp. The smooth, parabolic playing action still copes really well when smaller fish are hooked. The relatively short 10ft (3.05m) length really helps to bring fish much closer in for ease of netting.

The slim, crisp and responsive blank slices through the air, enhancing casting accuracy. Stand-off SiC guides also aid smooth line travel. It also comes with three super-slim, push-in carbon Feeder Tips of 1.5oz, 2oz and 2.5oz that blend perfectly with the blank.

This rod is ideal when matched with feeders up to 45g (1.5oz) and will comfortably cope with ranges up to 40 metres. Greater distances can be achieved with balanced tackle and a good casting technique.
As with all the rods in the Acolyte Feeder family, the 10ft Plus folds away into two even length sections. This allows it to be conveniently transported in a Rod Sleeve or Rod Case and assembled in seconds. Neoprene rod socks and a rod-retaining band are also included to help keep everything secure in transit.
The Acolyte Plus 10ft Feeder is a compact and deceptively powerful rod with a beautiful fish playing action. An ideal choice for modern bomb and feeder fishing techniques.

£189.00
11ft, Drennan
The Acolyte Plus 11ft Feeder rod is a super slim, lightweight rod with a stepped-up action for situations where slightly more strength and power are required.
The 11ft (3.35m) length is the perfect all-round choice for ease of both casting and playing fish on a wide variety of venues. The rod has more power than the 11ft Ultra Feeder, which makes it an ideal choice for quality fish like bream, tench, chub, carp and F1s. However, the smooth, parabolic playing action still copes really well when reeling in smaller silverfish.
The slim, crisp and responsive blank cuts through the air and offers optimum casting accuracy. The cast is further enhanced by stand-off SiC guides that are deliberately spaced to help the line travel through them as smoothly as possible.

This rod is ideal when matched to feeders up to 60g (2oz) and will easily cope with ranges up to 50 metres. Greater distances are achievable with sensibly balanced tackle and a good casting technique.
The 11ft Plus comes with three push-in carbon tips of 2oz, 2.5oz and 3oz. These super-slim tips have been designed to blend perfectly with the rod blank.
The rod can be neatly folded away into two sections, so it can be carried to the bankside in a Rod Sleeve or Rod Case and assembled in seconds. A useful set of Neoprene rod socks and a rod-retaining band are also included to help keep everything secure and protected in transit.

£199.00
12ft, Drennan
The Acolyte Plus 12ft Feeder rod is the most powerful rod in the family and excels when you need to cast longer distances for quality fish.
This 12ft (3.66m) rod has a super slim blank with plenty of backbone for casting feeders of up to 60g (2oz) with greater accuracy. Stand-off SiC guides also allow the line to flow smoothly for increased casting potential. This rod is ideal for medium to long range work up to 60 metres, but distances greater than this are achievable with the right tackle and a good casting technique.
During field-testing, the 12ft Plus accounted for plenty of quality carp into double figures on long-range Method feeder tactics. This versatile rod is equally at home for catching species like bream and tench with conventional feeders. The extra length is also really useful for anglers wanting to target hard-fighting fish on rivers.

It comes with three top-quality carbon Feeder Tips of 2.5oz, 3oz and 4oz that each blend in seamlessly with the slim blank.
A two-piece design enables the rod to be conveniently carried to the bankside ready made up inside a Rod Sleeve or Rod Case. Neoprene rod socks and retaining bands are also included to help keep everything protected and together.

£169.00
9ft, Drennan
Like other Ultra/Plus models in the Acolyte range, the Plus 9ft Feeder is a stepped-up version of the Ultra 9ft model but remains super slim and lightweight.
The design was refined through stages of prototypes and months of field testing.

At 2.74m the Plus 9ft Feeder has an average weight of just 4.5 oz (120g) and is perfect when fishing from platforms and tight swims on commercial fisheries when the shorter length will also help to bring the fish closer in for swifter netting.
The Plus 9ft Feeder has a parabolic playing action which is ideal for silverfish, F1s and small to medium sized carp. It comes with 1.5oz, 2oz and 2.5oz slim carbon push-in tips as standard which blend perfectly with the blank an interchange with other Acolyte Feeder models but not the Distance Feeder.

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.

10ft, Free Spirit

40t and 30t carbon with a B-Axis carbon tape allows all CTX rods to be light but very strong. This material provides very crisp actions that make accurate casting easy, the power build up is very subtle when playing a fish so you never feel you've lost control.
The character of this carbon makes it possible to keep the handle lengths shorter than is conventional but still produce a rod that is extremely light and well balanced. The rods are supplied with 3 push in quiver tips, 2 carbon and one glass that are a little shorter at 540mm in length. This makes for a lower diameter of both the quiver tip and the top section joint where the quiver is pushed into meaning better overall rod balance and critically no flats spots or 'elbow' where the solid quiver tip section joins the hollow top section.
Available in lengths of 9ft 10ft and 11ft with the heavier 'B.W.' (Big Water) being more powerful for use of larger waters where longer casting is required or when you expect to encounter bigger carp.
These models feature longer handles for better casting leverage.
For use with 3lb to 8lb lines.

£119.99
The CTX Feederlites are available in 10ft, 11ft and 12ft and have been designed mainly for Bream, Skimmer and Silverfish. The blanks are lighter and slimmer than the Carp Feeders and cone with lighter quiver tips for more delicate bite detection.
This 10ft version makes a great small river and canal rod as well as lake fishing up to around 40m; the 11ft makes a great all-round tool for rivers and lakes with casts up to 50m or so whilst the 12ft rod is perfect for casts up to around 60m. Supplied with glass tips of 0.75oz, 1oz and a carbon tip of 1oz. However Free Spirit also supply other glass and carbon tips (Please contact the shop for details).

A plug in 2ft extension piece above the handle allows quick change from short to longer range or for when the rod tip needs to be elevated on rivers.
