Thanks Andrew & Keith, I've been using the Drennan Red range 10 foot Carp feeder for the last 3 years or so - a good rod for the money (was about £40 at the time) but been finding that one a bit stiff, getting more hook pulls than I should & generally not that much fun to fish with.
I'm sure I'll get much more pleasure fishing the latest acquisition.
Im sure you will get a lot of pleasure using it Martin.
I do have the same rod after all. I bought it when it first came out, and although it is the stillwater version I found it an excellent rod for Feeder fishing on the Thames and I remember coming third in an inter club match on the Thames using it with a nice catch of Chub.
I havent used it for quite a while now as Im rarely using feeders and Its been ages since I fished the Thames, but it is a great rod.
Heres a list of the Drennan rods that I have:
12ft 6in Drennan DRX Stillwater Feeder rod, (2 piece plus Quivers)
12ft Drennan IM6 1.25tc Specialist rod, (2 piece)
13ft Drennan Tench and Specialist Float rod, (2 piece plus handle extension)
13ft MKIV Drennan Tench Float rod, (3 piece)
13ft Drennan Acolyte Ultra Float rod. (3 piece)
