    Default Drennan Acolyte

    A couple years ago anglers were condemning Drenan Acolyte for tips snapping.

    Has the problem disappeared as I have not read or heard anything of late??.

    I have 14' ultra and would not be with out it for all my trotting.

    There were a lot of reported problems by anglers on the Upper Trent in my area. It was mainly 15 footers I think.

    Apparently there's a kot of clumsy anglers on the upper trent area .

    Yes, one of them's tip fell apart as he was clumsily threading the line through the rings.

    And the ones that dropped to bits casting, and the ones that folded over on striking. That's the trouble with the upper Trent match circuit, all those .08 hooklengths and size 22 and 24 hooks do nothing but foster outright clumsiness!

    I’ve got three, 2 ultras and a carp waggler. All bought used, and no problems.

    Mostly fish commercials and catch plenty of carp on them.

    Wonderful rods!

    Your obviously not an upper trent angler though, otherwise there's little doubt that you would have broken all your accy rods with pure clumsiness .
