Bit of advice needed.

I've been given a bit of money to add a feeder rod to my arsenal.

As its the first feeder ive got was hoping to get a bit of an all rounder rod. Going to be using it mainly on a bit of a slow/medium river (River Don around ouhtibridge if anyone was wondering) and the odd visit to a local still water or commercial.

Was thinking about the £75 range and with what research I have done was thinking maybe a medium rod.

Any advice greatly appreciated

You’ll not need a long rod for that stretch 11ft would be ample, in that price band I don’t have much knowledge to be honest but most medium strength rods will be sufficient.
I know there are odd barbel in that stretch but you don’t need to go for an out and out barbel rod, they are very much a rarity so the reality is you will probably catch more brown trout and grayling than anything else, with that in mind 11ft medium feeder would be the most versatile rod for the job...

unless when you say odd local Stillwater you mean the Flask or Underbank, then you will probably need a 12ft rod

You probably won't get something to cover all bases in one rod, but these Angling Direct rods don't look too bad, and if you push yourself money wise, you may be able to get all 3.

I'd have a look at the Wilson Avon quiver, quite an ideal jack of all trades master of none rod. I've used it on everything from dace on the lightest tip to barbel on the heaviest tip.

The Wilson's are good rods

If you can stretch the drennan specialist 1lb in 11ft are lovely twin top rods and the quiver section will take drennan daiwa tips

Not sure where you are located but these rods get a good write up

I would suggest something like a Drennan Red Range Carp feeder at 11ft. My reason for suggesting this rod is the availablity of spare tips giving you the options to change to carbon tips for the river or lighter/heavier tips for still waters. Dont be put of by the name. I use a 9ft version for close work on the river and it’s great for roach and chub.

Maver. You can get them for the right money and they handle nicely. I have 2 and swear by them.

Absolutely, would recommend the Drennan Red Range. All Drennan spare tips will fit, and they are lovely rods. I use the 9 foot models for roach and hybrid fishing. The 11ft would be a great all-rounder, and it is within budget
