Fixed reel seat, quality lined rings and different strength quivers fitting one tip (an incrteasingly common feature these days).
The lack of a top eye that takes a swingtip (I've modified mine accordingly)and the hook retainer just above the butt seems to have been an after thought being just a looped piece of wire whipped to the rod (which will be modified in due course).
Very versatile capable leger / feeder rod A very versatile leger / feeder rod which I've used for quiver tipping for roach to rod top legering for barbel and stillwater tench fishing.I would like to see a second straight avon top made available at a higher test curve say 1.75lb.Shop around if
