There’s a used Drennan Series 7 Carp Power Float 12ft on the bay at the moment. Never used one myself mind.
Bit more than that now... last one I saw was £90... I have a set of 3 for my Carp rods (all fettled by Leszek Delag (Watermole) with the plastic centre bossed replaced with Brass ones and the reels trued up and straightened... gorgeous they are nowA Mordex Merlin might suit your needs, I've often seen them for around the £40 Mark so not too expensive.
Thanks for the review, I’ll keep an eye out for AD sales. I recall Bill (RIP) from Easy Fishing YouTube recommended the NGT as a good budget pin.I’ve got the Advanta pin and it’s a really decent bit of kit. Well made, smooth, spins like a dream and the inertia is pretty low so works well for trotting (although shouldn’t really make much difference for margin carp).
But…I wouldn’t pay £65 for it tbh. I’m a bit shocked AD have got it listed for that! I got mine when they had a sale on, about £40 I think. If they do that again or for around £50 definitely get one.
The other cheap pin people recommend for still water margin fishing is the NGT one. Never used one but you can get those for about 40 I think.
