When they were a bit more common, they were typically 11/12' light actioned float rods. Some had spliced tips, some didn't.How would you define a canal rod?
Looks like a slight revamp of the Altima, which weren't bad at all. Nice to see that the light variant is less than 13'. Suits my preferences nicely.Had a waggle of the 12ft light version of the garbolino essential yesterday looks very promising for a canal rod or small river stick float rod, nice quality and the action was nice and fast but the tip section very soft... Think I may be investing in one

Good lord, no. However, I actually find that I land more carp on the venue I tend to use this kit (really light action rod/3-4lb mainline/1.5lb(ish) hooklengths/18, 20, 22 fine wire hooks) than if I use heavier (actioned) rods and stronger line/hooks. The only snag is that you need some space and quite a bit of patience if a carp does turn up. It also makes the odd carp intrusion rather entertaining. The fine wire hooks invariably open out before any line breakage occurs if it becomes necessary to attempt to stop them at all costs.That makes total sense, thanks Sam!
And no 500lb bags of carp involved, presumanly?
