Question Budget method Feeder rods

Are there any budget Method Feeder Rods that you would recommend for feeder fishing on commercials?

When i say Budget i mean up to £60 - £70.

Somewhere around the 10ft mark if it's possible.

If you could stretch a little, I recently bought the Drennan Series 7 method rod.

I'm the first to admit, I've never bothered fishing the method before but the rod seems fine to me.

I also tried a mate's Middy "The Works", that's 10ft and even less expensive, around £50 ish.

Nice piece of kit, too.

Best of luck in choosing

Garbolino carp picker or carp rocket well within your price range
And I have the carp picker and can recommend it

I like the look of the (Middy The Works 10ft Bagging Feeder rod) and at around £50.00p it's really affordable too. I've got a really nice Okuma front drag reel that would look lovely sitting on that.I'm thinking 6lb or 8lb Daiwa Sensor as a mainline>

I had a look at the (Garbolino Rocket Carp Picker rods) they look nice also, and at around £30.00p could be a proper bargain, the only concern i had was the line rating was for 5lb and i thought that was a little light if you hit in to a lot of fish on the feeder.

Please correct me if i'm wrong though.

Mark Brailsford said that Middy stuff is rubbish,cos he knows someone who works there and they get a lot of rods returned.....i,m not sure what the problem is with them though.........

Not a problem if you catch a lot of fish that can be safety landed on 5lb line
If you hit a big lump then you may have trouble playing it

Thanks Paul, all the info i've received so far has been really helpful.

I've been looking in to the TF Gear range of rods, i would have to see them for real and not online to make a final judgement on them.
