    Default 10' -11' Waggler Rod

    Hi looking for a shortish Waggler rod, but don't want a rod to fish 10g+ splasher style floats. Wanting to use Drennan blues and straight and insert Waggler's. On searching these shorter rods are designed carp Waggler's. Any ideas

    I like the maver elite. Slim, light, affordable.

    Sounds as if it doesn't need to handle carp, so one of the traditional canal rods might suit you? They crop up on eBay, and two good ones are Image and Harrison Canal Special.

    If you're happy with unorthodox solutions (purists, look away) you can easily knock up a short butt to reduce the length of a rod. An 18" handle will make your 14' float rod an 11' one, and I've found the action, for light line fishing, can be sweeter than for a short rod in 3 equal sections. If one of the rings ends up too close to the reel, leave it out. Live dangerously.

    These ones take a 10' wand to 8', and a 17' float to 15'.

    Big tackle shops often have spare butt sections knocking around, if you don't have any old donor rods in the shed.

    Drennan Matchpro Ultralight in 11' should fit the bill.

    Forgot about this one, Sam.

    Want a rod to cast the lighter floats fishing for chub and ide to 5lb, F1's, roach or any thing that swims in my local commies when I fish them.

    I'd agree with Sam , I have the 12 ft version and have had decent perch and chub on it , really nice rod.

    Give Shakespeare pellet waggler rods a try not over priced. Also use them for most my small stream float and ledger work.

    Pellet waggler rods usually have a casting weight of 10grams plus
