Has anyone got any personal experience of these rods? i already own a CTX 13'power feeder special for longer chucks and i'll admit i'm smitten with it to the point that im thinking of replacing my perfectly good preston c series carbonactive with one of the above . i dont have a stockist too local to me so thought id have an ask here to try get a bit more insight into them . my understanding from the sales blurb is that the feederlite is a softer actioned rod compared to the multi feeder though the casting weights are all but the same. For me it will be primarily a bream tool that will be pushed into service on medium rivers and potentially larger still waters too. the feederlite is billed as a bream / silvers rod but the marketing blurb on the multi feeder sounds like its a rod more bias towards commercial carp fishing leaving me wondering if it might be a bit more pokey than id like ideally with bream as its main quarry, but then the bit that really confuses me is free spirit also offer a ctx carp feeder range too therefore maybe the multi feeder wont be too pokey after all.
so if anyone who has actually used them could give me any pointers it would be appreciated. Thank you

Sorry don’t own one but I’m very tempted by the CTX Carp Waggler range. Free Spirit have a pretty good reputation in the carp & specialist world so don’t seem a bad buy at sub £100.
No doubt someone will be along with the info you want.

As in my post I already own a ctx power feeder and that's what's tempted me as I rate it very highly hence the temptation, I have decided on the multi and am picking it up on Wednesday. I would highly recommend that you at least have a look in the flesh at your choice of rod before you buy anything else, I doubt you'll be disappointed in what you see.
