Anyone seen this rod. Its a feeder rod with no quiver tips but a one piece top = to 6oz? It's lines to 12lb , so Ideal for barbel are my thoughts? But at 6oz tip would you get a fight from a decent bream, roach, perch? Thanks all. Rich.

Rich it's a specialist feeder rod designed for flooded rivers, 8-12lbs lines and chucking big weighted feeders with strong hooks and hook lengths on fast flowing rivers. Even a standard 4oz rated feeder rod is over gunned for roach and bream, however it will still get them in.

Have you had a waggle of one yet Dave? Was looking at getting a tournemant slr but James is twisting my arm to get the #4. He's lending me one to see what I think.

Rick....have you watched the Cadence video of it in use on a flooded river? You can see what it's made for there.

Dave/Frank thanks so much, brilliant help. I knew someone would have seen it. I'll try and find the video, sounds like it would make an ideal Barbel rod?

Found that thanks guys. It looks a brilliant Trent, out and out barbel rod. Any idea how much you could get one for, any deals from James?

Jason I haven't but having worked with Shakespeare and James he's one of the best tackle development managers in the business. The Superteam feeder rods James developed were superb particularly the 11/12/13 ft. The problem with the SLR's is their price. I have the Castizm 14ft which has the Tournament long tips used on the Distance Feeder. It's a superb rod and some of the reviews hinted that the fish playing action may be better than the Tournaments however when it came to distance and accuracy the Tournament came into it's own.

The question I would ask in your position is how often would I use it and how often would I need 5-6 oz to hold.

I look at it from the perspective that when you need to use 4oz + more often than not the river will be rising and 9 times out of 10 you'll need to come closer as the river comes up. You also have to consider that quite often you need to reel in because of the amount of rubbish collecting on your line. As I found out when I won the festival on a rapidly rising river, rod action and cost doesn't come into it when the debris collected on the line weighs as much as the barbel. I was using 5.5 oz and it was simply a case of pumping the fish and debris in and even a 3lb barbel feels like a 8-9lb fish with all the debris often covering the fish on the line.

It's nice to have a good rod for chub fishing and general 2-4 oz work however when it comes to big rivers flooded I think the Cadence will be spot on.

There'll be water in on Saturday and more on Sunday so I'd take James up on his offer and see what you think.

Had a waggle of the slr 13ft today, they do feel something special.. it's a shame Drennan haven't done a proper acolyte river rod. I've got there 13ft distance feeders, really nice still water bream rod and Thames rod but not got quite enough for the Wye

Difficult when you only have limited funds isn't it? I'd like a rod that you feel a 1lb fish but will also land a double figure barbel in a flood? Ha!:p:p:p Yes, I know it does not exist. Dave, someone told me the Castizm was not as well made for a Daiwa rod, but that was just one mans opinion! I thought the Acolyte might have fitted the bill, but clearly by the above comments, not so. In summer, I'd like to use the rod for distance tench and big bream, and 13/14 foot would be nice. I'll keep looking and if you don't mind asking? Thanks Rich.

Rick I have the 12/13ft Connoisseur Z which and had the previous Connoisseur 11/13ft's in both river and still water. The Castizm 14ft 2in is a superb rod IMO better than the Connoisseurs. I can't speak for the other models but the rod is very well made and the joints like the tournaments are very close tolerance.

I’ve got both the 12’ 6’’ & 13’ 6’’ Daiwa Castizm rods & they are superb. I use the 13’ 6’’ on the Thames for chucking out feeders & they have plenty of power yet a lovely fish playing action. I’ve also got the Cadence 13 #2 & 13 #3 feeder rods & although decent rods, I haven’t used them since I bought the Castizms
