To be honest 45g and 20g virtually is Pellet Waggler country as you dont want a quiver. Its not very demanding....a bit of a gentle lob.

So I think I have narrowed my search down to the following:

- Daiwa Nzon S 11ft 80gm 3 piece
- Matrix Aquos Ultra D 12ft 90gm 3 piece
- Free Spirit CTX Multi Power Feeder 12ft 60g 3 Piece

What are everyone's opinions of the above rods? Are any better/worse than another. Are these the best 3 piece feeder rods for casting a 45gm loaded method feeder for bream and tench?

Korum used to do a 3 section 11 foot feeder rod with a casting weight of 45g for under £50 but its discontinued now although you may find one hiding in a shop.

Never used one but I've heard a lot of good things about the Free Spirit CTX range.

The Preston super feeders are all 3 piece rods and the 11 or 12ft ones should manage what you are wanting easily. Another option if you are not looking to use the quiver tip as an indicator would be the Darent Valley specialist range of rods supplied by the Tackle Box at Dartford, they do an 11 ft 0.75lb or 11ft 1.25lb TC specialist rods these are both very nice rods definately equal in quality of blank and the fittings and finish to rods cost twice as much, I have the 0.75lb rod and use it with a butt indicator sometimes when fishing at ranges of around 20-30m and is great for fish of around 4-6lbs it has a lovely playing action. I tried the 1.25lb rod when I bought the lighter one and again the quality is very good it is not as soft an action as the 0.75 and obviously has a bit more grunt so should have no difficulty in doing what you want it to do and for less than £50 they are a bit of a bargain

Thank you for this. I have just messaged them asking about the rod and also if it comes in a 3 piece. Also if it is capable of casting a 45gm loaded method feeder.
