Spotted on the Sale page at BobCo.
Took a punt and bought one.

No info on Daiwa website site so i guess discontinued a while ago.
Anyone here have/used one ?

I was looking at the same rod over the weekend, like you I couldn't find any info on it...I could do with a power waggler rod that has a more traditional type of action rather than the pellet waggler type action, I have a Normark Avenger which is great but sometimes a 12ft rod might be better, I would be very interested to hear what you think of it

Could be a while before i get to use it !
Would be nice if the rings are a bit larger than than the pellet waggler rods i have.
I find them too soft and would prefer a tip/middle action rather than parabolic.
I did see an Angling Times review of the 13ft version, not detailed but all i could find.

That is the type of action I am looking for also...but as you say very little about that rod on tinternet....not even clear if it is a 2 or 3 piece

The 12ft which Bobco has on sale is 2 piece.
The 13ft which AT reviewed is 3 piece.
12ft 2 piece is fine for me. less joints better action.

Got the rod now.
Rings are not any bigger than my Ninjas, was hoping they would be a little larger but not a show stopper.
Single leggers on the top section.
Butt section is beefed up and quite heavy, not thick but well strengthened.
Action is tip/middle mainly because of the stout butt.

I am happy with the rod at the price i paid.
I wouldn't have been so pleased if i had bought one at full retail.
