John Wilson Avon quiver. About six years old, in good nick with the original bag.
I no longer need it as I now have the travel version. It's a great rod for someone new and for someone looking for a decent 1.25lb test curve rod. It'll happily manage anything from a Gudgeon to a ten pound Barbel (it has).
All I need is the postage paying.

Could I be considered?

I know ive been around since 2009, but im only 25 lol.

I genuinely only have a pole, and despite I never felt like quiver tip is "real" fishing I have many lakes up north west that could benefit from a well placed method feeder.

Also, can someone explain what the test curve means??

The test curve is the weight required to bend it to a certain position. Carp rods are typically around 2.75lb, barbel rods 1.5lb and avon type rods around 1.25lb. Commercial feeder rods are I believe around 0.75 to 1.25. Someone will correct me if Iโ€™m wrong. Feeder rods are more generally measured by their casting weight and float rods by the ideal line size. Sorry if you knew most of that but you asked about test curves and I wanted to give a full answer.
