After much deliberation I think I have decided on the Bream Rod I want, a 12' Tricast Trilogy Long Range Medium Feeder Rod.

Does anyone here have any experience of these rods? I decided I want the 12' as I should be able to fish my normal up to 40m range with it and maybe push past that if necessary?

Thanks I hadn't seen that. It says 40-60m which sounds about right for me I guess. So it's going to be more of a standard Bream rod than a Big Distance rod which I guess is what I'm looking for really.

Have a look at the preston supera 12ft6 80gram feeder rod, about £180, absolute beauty of a rod,loverly for roach, skimmers and bream, and it’ll church a 50gram feeder, loaded with gbait a decent way, but still has a loverly action for playing fish

There's a nice 12ft MAP Parabolix SUV in the classifieds @Zerkalo :whistle::D

It chucks half way across Barston and isn't too stiff either.

I took mine out for the first time yesterday and am very impressed, with my carp reel fitted it will cast a feeder a LONG way. Yet the supplied tips are very sensitive and showed up bites from skimmers and roach. Enough forgiveness in the tip to help avoid hook pulls unless you are really ham fisted. Yet the power is there in plenty in the butt and middle section.

It’s a more specialised fast, tippy action. Rather than the more common through action that dominates modern feeder rods. When I took it out of the rod bag for a first waggle in the back garden, my first impression was that it looked like a specialist carp / barbel rod and seemed a bit broom handle like.

Having used it and been won over I will be using it for everything from long range roach and skimmers to floodwater barbel and big carp.

I got the 14 foot extreme (a bit OTT for most people) but I fish a lot of big waters 30 acres up to 200 acres and in depths of up to 40 feet. I need to be able to hit the original stream or river bed that was dammed to create the reservoir. Yet be able to see bites from roach and skimmers, hook and land them.

That sounds like fantastic fishing mate. I don't 'need' to cast that far, often only casting 40m (I'm a terrible judge of distance though), but would like the option to fish a bit further as well as having a rod that I can still use at 40m, so I'm torn between the 12' and 13'.

The 12 footer is rated at 2 - 6lb line and the 13 footer rated at 2 - 8lb line. Would the extra foot of length make casting under trees hard work? Trees aren’t much of a problem on most of my big chuck venues.

That's a thought definitely. Usually I can get out in the water a bit so it makes no difference. Though thinking about it I probably will go for the 12' as originally planned as the 13' would just be for the fun of being able to cast further.

You should be able to cast a 12ft rod upto 70/80 mtrs, no problem, I have an 11ft guru aventus, and I’ve fished that at 76mtrs, no problem

Some cast Mike with an 11ft rod , I could do it with a lead but not a Feeder
The aventus are a fantastic casting tool, probably similar to the slr,, I checked the distance after I came home on my 3mtr marker sticks, I always check, where I end up catching, I normally start my long line off at 50/55mtrs, depending on wind and conditions,, then chase them out from there

I use a 13ft from 40 to 80 but shorter rod on commies I'd use an 11ft up to 40mts

I once read a bizarre comment on youtube on a sea fishing distance casting video something along the lines of this. :unsure:

Experts will know a shorter rod means longer distance as the acceleration is quicker

Clearly untrue, at least for coarse fishing casting, but did make me stop and wonder.

I only used my aventus once at this range, it was a new rod, and I wanted to use it, the conditions weren’t bad, or I would have swapped to a more suitable rod, for fishing at this distance.

Just before I pull the trigger on a 12' one of these, I'm wondering if, not going for one of the really long range ones, if I'm compromising on fish playing action for the sake of a 'distance' rod even though I'm getting a 12'. I'm basically wondering if they will be too tippy?
