As above, just asking to see if there are any for sale before I order custom build.

Thanks for looking.

Have a look at the Dwarf Range... they do a 1.75lb 9' rod if I remember correctly

Thanks, I’d rather leave the dwarfs, if I could find a Scope 1.75 that would be perfect.Cheers

I have a pair of 2.75lb 9' Dwarfs and they are tough as old boots... the Scopes may be lighter with better carbon, but they are brittle with a lot of users reporting broken tips... to my mind they are not worth the extra £100+

If you can find one, Drennan do a 1.75lb 8' Spinning rod which makes a cracking margin, stalking rod

These rods I’m looking for, are for Tench and Crucians, as an alternative which do you think would be better suited
Drennan ultra mini feeder 8’ - 9’
Korum 8’ x 2lb

You'd be better off with an 11 foot pellet waggler for both... the 2lb rods are too heavy for crucians and tench...

Greys Prodigy TXL Specimen 11ft 1lb t/c might be ideal, similar action to a pellet waggler but can also cast leads.
