Hello people, i have now decided that i am goin to treat myself to a new quivertip rod, as the 1 that i have got at the min is very much outta date and for which the tip on it is soft and weak as anything.

There are a few that iv looked at but i am sure there is better for cheaper out there.

what i am wanting it to do is beable to cast a fullyfilled method feeder and possibly a baggin waggler quite some distance.

So do any of u know any rod that springs to mind in a price bracket of say 40-60....?

Hi Lee,
Have to say that nothing springs to mind in that price bracket,But if you can stretch to 90-100 then it's got to be one of the new Diawa "Porky Pigs"[:D]

If i was you i would not bother with a quiver rod for the big fish in the summer i would use a carp rod mate i use a browning 2lb test curve carp rod for DRAYTON AND CLATTERCOTE using the baggin wag and method you cant beat them mate.

Well what about all of the the other venues that i will be fishing kev? And i would of thought that a 2lb testcurve carp rod would be goin o-t-t.

And does anybody know anything about the Vulcan-X

I've got a Shimano Solstace in Light and extra heavy. Both come with 3 sets of tips of varying size and I've found them to be excellent. The extra heavy is ideal for method work and is very strong and the light is a superb rod for tench and bream of around 4-5lb with an excellent action.

The new 11'/13' Masterline John Wilson Avon Quiver looks good to me. It's got two tops, three tips and a butt extension. You can get it for 70 from several mail order companies.[8D]

Angling Direct of Norwich will give you a 14 day full refund including delivery [?] and collection charges if you don't like it. Under the distance selling laws, you are entitled to return anything you buy mail order within 7 days anyways. See this link :

http://www.oft.gov.uk/Business/Legal+Powers/Distance+Selling+Regulations.htm

I've just ordered one from Mullarkey's Direct, but haven't opened the parcel yet, so can't tell you if it's any good. [:D]

The only small thing that puts me off is the 3 push in quiver tips are white. But thinking about it, it shouldn't matter.

If that doesn't work out why not try a Maver rod from Floats-Direct
on their "sale or return - 14 day home trial"?

Their reputation is pretty good as I'm sure Dave will tell. [:D]


Personally though I think you've made a good choice, the John Wilson
Avon rod is a belter, and as he actually uses the stuff he puts his name
to you can't grumble eh? [;)]

Well I just unpacked my new John Wilson 11'/13' Avon quiver and it seems a really good rod system, especially for the money. Have to wait till I fish with it before I'm sure, but I bet it will be just great. [^]

The only thing I find a bit different is that it only breaks down to 5'6". Most of my other rods are 3 or 4 piece beasts, so I'm not used to the long tube. Shouldn't matter though, but if I'm gonna carry it two miles across fields to reach a swim, I now need a bigger rod bag. [:D]

interesting Lid.

Kev

hows the footie going chap? ready to be hammered by the rugby boys this summer?
[;)]

im watching this post with avid interest and the eyes of a skinflint.

i too need a decent feeder rod for venues like Holly farm as my 1 3/4 TC heavy feeder rod simply isnt sensitive enough, but i only fancy spending 50 so a second hand jobbies what im after

if anyones got a spare they want to sell ..........[:D]

Yeah, the rhinos are great rods for the price. i have both the 12' feeder and the 13'float both of which are capable of handling big fish whilst retaining sensitivity. the biggest fish i've had so far on the feeder rod is a 21lb carp from drayton. the great thing about these rods is that they don't suffer from locking up due to the high % of glass fibre that is in the blank, oh and by the way, as already said, they are 'cheap as chips'[^]


HEY DUDE............

Cheers Kev

so you recon the Rhinos are ok then! I know i sound like a right noddy but i want to be sure .......... [8D]

i want to beat you guys this summer and just think how terrible it will be to loose 'cos i bought the wrong rod!!! [;)]

so the 12 foot medium feeder will be ok for sorting out 5lb carp from Holly farm and woodlands view?
