Sorry yes I did mean the ultra ??I beg to differ. I consider the action of the 15' Maver Signature to be closely comparable to the 15' Acolyte Plus. But then again, what do I know, I just own and use them both (along with the 15' Acolyte Ultra). I'd go so far as to say that I'd not be remotely surprised if Maver gave an Acolyte Plus to their manufacturers and said copy that, but make it a little tougher. If, as I suspect, you are comparing it to an Acolyte Ultra, you may have more of a point, but by just saying "Acolyte", you don't make it clear enough.
An Acolyte Ultra will undoubtedly be considered as a silvers rod by many. An Acolyte Plus is certainly a bit more than just a silvers rod, much like the Maver Signature. However, both Acolyte models are lighter than a Maver Signature at the corresponding length. It shouldn't be too much of a shock to anyone that a buyer presented with two similar rods, at similar prices, is likely to take the one that feels lighter in the shop. An awful lot of the success of the Acolytes can be attributed to them being impressively light at a relatively sensible price.
