    Default maver elite float rod 12' ?

    Hi everyone,i am thinking of getting the maver elte 12' float rod and was wondering if anyone has used them and what are your opinions please.
    Any info would be welcome.
    I was wondering what type of action the rod has and what are the species it is aimed at.
    I will use it mainly on commercials.

    Thank you.

    PS - I've No connection with the shop, but they know me well. (prob' cos' I spend too much with them lol)

    Good Luck.

    Yep - Free delivery over £50 it says.

    The Outwood Branch No is 01924 - 835443 They should take a card payment over the phone & maybe you can negotiate a better deal than advertised.

    They're very often good for a fiver or so off !!

    Have a drive over?? You might see something else instead - Loads of stuff there.

    Rotherham's not that far away.

    I got the J.W Young 13 foot specimen Float 10542 from them - was only £60 & prob' Every bit as good IMO.

    Progressive Through Action - Bends to the Butt but, & can hold it all day long + £50 cheaper - Love it!!

    5 - 8 Lb Main line. & doesn't bump off many small fish.

    Small fish - I mean the 1 oz sprats.

    I've landed 10 Lb + Carp on the J.W. It's a real Donkey stopper with plenty of tip action as well.

    Almost 1/2 the price!!

    I had a look at the elite in wickersley angling yesterday (originaly went to look at the frenzee 11'6" ).
    The maver just felt better but you can't really tell unless your on the bank with it.
    I just came out more confused as usual.

    has anyone got experience of the Drennan Series 7 Puddle Chucker 12ft CARP WAGGLER ROD?

    Probably way too late is an okay rod, very through actioned and not as crisp as my vintage vHarrison GTi or Shakespeare LXl at 12ft

    For commercial work is fine, trotting a river probably less so
