    Cool Quiver tip rod............

    I'm in the market for a decent quiver tip rod for small rivers and tight swims on still waters. I have longer rods but for what I have in mind a rod of max 10' would be advantageous. Even 9' would suit the tree clad waters I fish....

    I like to buy quality regardless of usage so I don't need to buy anything second hand or 'make do'.

    I will look around, but as always I like to buy based on the experience of others who might use such an animal....

    Any help/comments/suggestions, appreciated..

    Tee Cee, have a look at the Shimano 9-11ft Beastmaster (silly name) feeder rods. There are at least 3 different models, they come with 3 quivertips. I use them for roach in both lakes and rivers, they have a nice soft action but will cast a loaded swim feeder without any problem. On them I have landed decent barbel, carp, etc but even a reasonable roach will put a proper bend in them.

    I like my Hardy Marksman Supero 10 bomb rod. It has a lovely action like all Hardy rods, is beautifully made and packaged and is perfect for tighter swims and light feeders/ short casts! It can be sourced but at a price. It's well worth it however in my book!

    I also have a Browning 8' F1 wand which is a delight to use for short casts and light feeders and leads. I use this on smaller snake lakes on a day ticket water on a club card!

    Tricast make an excellent wand (9' and called the XRS I think) which is a lovely rod and which I would have bought had the Hardy not turned up!

    I currently own the best quiver rod I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a LOT!)

    Daiwa Matchwinner 10/11ft. Slim, light, comes with 1, 1.5 & 2oz carbon tips. Had carp to 16lbs on it. I use it at 11ft for bigger fish in bigger waters and at 10ft for matches and tight pegs.

    Like most good things it’s now discontinued but it was around £150 when I bought mine.

    Got to disagree with you on hardy rods they were good rod in there day, there’s better rods on the market now

    I also have hardy rods a 14ft marksman specialist float , 12ft feeder, marksman Specialist, 11ft Avon Smuggler. Plus a Conquest Centre pin (the pin is the dog bits)

    Try getting a hardy Course rod repaid under the life time guarantee

    But with the newer and better carbons that have come out since hardy stopped making course rods, hardy is old hat. Harris, diawa, shimano, Drennan, are just some of the name that making better rod now.

    Are you havin' a laugh, Hardy marksman rods are old hat? I nearly choked laughing!

    I have a hardy specialiist 14footer and I also have a daiwa Dave Harrell pf rod and I know which I prefer, the hardy rod by a cou try mile.
    If where talkin centrepins then hardys pins are hardly the mutts nuts I can think of many reels that I have had and that I still have that I prefer.
    Now if you said Chris Lythes reels are the mutts nuts then yeah, i'd agree.
