  • Reccoemnd me a float rod!!!

    Hey im looking to buy a float rod as i don't have one but i don't know which one to get... i will be using about 4/5lb mainline and 3/4lb hook length for skimmers, bream and F1 with the occasional carp about 6lb - anywhere over 20lb lol.

    Any advice will be welcome

      Ive got a Drennan Series 7 Carp Waggler Combo (11ft 6" - 13ft) which seems pretty nice.

      Recommended reel lines up to 6lb. The rod has a nice soft action. Ive used it for pellet waggler and just general float work for silvers without any problems.

      Ive had fish from a few ounces to 13lb on it no problems.

            drennan floatmaster 13/15 combo, great for waggler fishing catching roach on rivers, more than enough power to handle chub, iv'e also used it on a commercial's and it holds it's own. at 15ft it becomes a long trotting rod in which great presentation can be achieved, a very versatile rod and worth every penny, they cost about £150, but you wont need to invest in another float rod as it will last you forever. can also be used for stick float fishing with hooklengths down to 0.6mm/ 12oz. fantastic rod.

                Buy Nathan Watson's Abu Suveran, they're a very good rod.

                          Hi,
                          I have been using the carbonactive range for all my float work, feeder and bomb work.

                          A little pricey but well worth it.

                          Carbonactive c series 13ft float has a very forgiving through action with an anti lock blank which is a treat when hooking soft mouthed skimmers but also has plenty enough back bone for carp well into double figures. Feels nice in the hand and well built.

                          Hope this helps
