      Krepton

      Hi, they are Normark krepton , I have 2 converted to suit myself.
      They don't make them anymore due to the brown hue the blank had,not being a popular colour and therefore never really sold.
      Absolutely fantastic rod for waggler fishing on rivers for roach chub etc.
      Lovely through action.
      I cut down the handles on mine and fitted a fuji reel fitting and some cork up onto the blank. (the originals have a dolly handle stuck up the bottom section.)
      Modified like above you can feel every kick a roach makes on the way in, and therefore tend to lose very few, if you respond accordingly.
      I also swapped the lower single legged fujis for double legged, as they tend to stress fracture if bent in and out of shape.
      The rod used to retail at about 135 quid as i recall.
      Still got my 2 but alas don't get much use these days.
