Im still struggling to find a suitable long range feeder rod for roach and bream. Ideally 13ft with the power to accurately cast large heavy open feeders mid to long distance 60 - 80m.
I've researched the preston dutchmaster range but am still unsure. I noticed prestons c tech 11/13ft but thought with its through action may be too soft to accurately cast big feeders, fairly big distances??
Have any of my fellow forum members found a rod perfect for what Im looking for, ideally one in current production, as Ive had a couple of bad experiences with buying used rods off a well know auction site.

Have you looked at a TriCast Legend 3500? I use one for fishing in Ireland. The guys I fish with use the dutch master and it can punch a 40 - 60 gram feeder plus contents 60 yards comfortably.

its more I need a rod with a soft quiver, 1 oz, to show the roach bites, and softish action as the roach come off very easily but also the rod needs the backbone to cast the distances

Daiwa amorphous whisker 11 - 13 ft stillwater feeder, old but still probably one of the best bream rods ever made. not coming up for sale that often these days but still worth trying to get hold of one.

At distance maybe try a helicopter rig, self hooking and no need for such a light tip, hitting finicky roach bites at distance will be hard, I think self hooking is the way to go

David,
I suspect that a Shimano Aerocast Feeder might have fitted the bill very nicely, especially if you are talking about stillwater fishing. The snag being that they are discontinued.

Though it is second hand, at least it's local enough for you to have a look, if he still has it. Might be worth trying this fella.
http://talkangling.co.uk/fishing/ta...der-rod.html

The medium is rated to cast up to 3.5 oz. It has three full length tip sections. Although they don't have a rating, as such, if they follow the rest of the Shimano range, they'll be 1, 2 and 3oz.

As said daiwa amw or matchlite 11/13. I've got a matchlite and with the 1oz tip it's ideal.
Also even rarer a terry smith crown prince or Scandinavian.

Defo go self hooking for roach at distance. Most speccy roach fisherman I've seen when fishing at distance go for scaled down carp tactics

Hardy Marksman 13' Heavy Feeder .. Fosters did have a special going on them think 150 per rod .. I bought mine exactly for the reasons you mention long range bream and tench - have only used it twice but is does all that is asked of it and nice action when landing bream .. I only fish braid at distance which is really unforgiving but had no problems.

I use a Browning 13ft King Feeder All Season. Casts 100gram, but with a lovely playing action. I pair it with a Shimano 4000 DL FA and 20lb whiplash braid. Don't use a leader, just play fish softly.
Perfect for Bream etc on the Huntspil.

Spare tips are a bit of a problem to get, but I acquired some spares from First for Fishing on 01405818277.

I would go for the Preston Dutchmaster 13'6 but the I have seen Tom Pickering using the 11ft/13ft C-Tech for lake bream at 60m to 80m in a video and it is also much cheaper.

yes read via goggle translate, a Russian I think, forum regarding prestons c tech 11/13 and they seemed to be singing its virtues. Am tempted by this rod as the option of the 11ft is always useful. It does state though it has a through action, I've found in the past to soft a rod will cause loss of accuracy/distance. The spectron is a tempter, maybe prestons 12 6 dutchmaster method. hmmmmm
