    Re: Preston carbonactive sentient 15/17 float rod

    Went and picked the rod up, as you say it's certainly not acolyte light but at 15ft it isn't too bad... A bit unwieldy at 17ft but a nice soft tip that bends through the mid section so although I've...

    I'm another 1 keen on double handles, although mainly for feeder work. A single is fine on a float or specialist rod. Prefer the balance of a double on a really light tip.
