Go for a rod thats strong down to the butt and that has a screw in swing-tip at the end. You could buy different strength tips, 1 for the bream and tench, I use 1 1/2oz tc for that and it can deal with carp up to 3lb. For the carp i'd reccomend something a little stronger though. Best bet is to ask in the tackle shop before you buy.

Get them rods bent, get them reels screamin', get fishin!

Hi Kingkarper,
Feeder rods there's a lot to choose from,

for long range work you need to look at longer feeder rods 12/13ft but for short to mid range you're ok with 10 to 11ft.

you can get feeder rods that have a intermediate section that will extend the rod from 10ft to 12ft
or 11ft to 13ft,
so maybe if you wanting an all rounder you should consider that option,

most of the good feeder rods now come with at least 3 inter-changeable quiver tips so that will give you options for the different species,

what you need to do is tell us what you budget is and then people will say what they recommend in that price range,



teepee.

I have the daiawa 11/13 ft stillwater feeder rod,If it's a jack of all trades your after you wont go for wrong with this.It will deal with lines from 1lb upto about 5lb you get two tips i think one carbon and one softer glass one.I mainly use the soft glass tip the only time I'll use the stiff tip is when i expect the carp to rip the tip round.Without a doubt great rod.

Don't argue with an idiot they will only bring you down to there level and beat you on experience

you sound like you need an allround rod ,but probably be better off with 2 rods because your fishing different styles for different fish

The difference between a light,medium and heavy feeder rod is the weight each would cast. So to answer your question what weight do you want to cast then look at rods that are capable of handling these.

chill out go fishing

Try the Maver micro-crystal,it comes with three tips and even though it is a medium feeder,it has loads of power,well balanced and 12foot.

I`m not trying to dampen anyones iterest with buying what they believe is a good deal..but..RRP doesn`t mean a bloody thing.[:p]
If you were to try and sell anything at RRP,you`d soon go bankrupt[V]
Think about it logically,if you really had something worth a couple of hundred quid,would you let it go for less than half price[:D]
Forget RRP and just look at the selling price,after all thats what matters[:D]
