After years and decades of carp fishing with heavy rods and big fixed leads i want to start feeder fishing this year. I want a rod suitable for chucks of some 60-80 m and capable of playing carp, but also bream and maybe bigger roach. The rods mentioned above are nearly the same price, but would like to know, which one is better quality and your preference of choice. Have found a lot of YT-vids on the Preston rods, bur hardly ones on the Matrix ones.

I've owned both. In my humble opinion the Preston is better than the Matrix. I'm sure others will disagree :LOL:

Thanks for replies. Hard to test rods in tackle shops nowadays, so one has to do some guesswork. I think i will go for the Preston. Also considered the Shimano Aero X7 Distance Feeder 13 footer. But I wonder, whether these tips can be replaced if broken, could not find a place one can order them.
