This flagship barbel combo is supplied with two Avon tops plus a quiver tip carrier section with 0.75oz, 1oz, 2oz glass and 3oz, 4oz carbon Super Tips. Both 3oz and 4oz Super Tips feature four single leg intermediate rings plus a quiver tip end eye, which being larger bore, makes them ideal for use with heavier breaking strain lines and when fishing flooded rivers carrying debris.
The Avon top sections are 1.5lb and 1.75lb test curve making the rod versatile for use on slow, medium and raging rivers in conjunction with leads or feeders but are equally at home for trotting large balsas. Ultra lightweight, thin and robust XT100/Tcurve blanks make this rod perfect for rolling baits/bottom bouncing when long sessions can be enjoyed with the usual associated arm fatigue.
The Antares AX Barbel Multi Tip is finished in burnished dark crimson with matching silk and gold tippets on the main rod guides (Fuji SIC), with low diameter pipe seat, hard cghrome keeper ring, cork/duplon handle, gun metal grey custom metallic handle bands and butt ring plus fantastic decals. Packaged in a virtually indestructable deluxe Cordura covered rod tube with a suedette rod bag this is the rod for the barbel angler who wants nothing but the best and with the equivalent of 7 rods in one £235
