I would recommend a new rod with a quiver tip insert as they have more back bone than a waggler and you will be able to see the tip moving a lot more as they are more sensitive. Also depending on the feeder types you want to use in weight. I am using cage feeders , method feeders and pellet feeders with great effect with the right gear. Tried using a waggler in the past and missed more takes and had to go fishing for my rod a few times as didn't see the take

Yes, you could get away with it - hell, my first rod was used for everything - but it's not ideal, and you risk having it broken on a savage take.

 

You can pick up a Garbolino Rocket feeder for around twenty notes, and it won't be the only decent deal if you shop around.

Budget (and not so cheap) feeder rods on Ebay go for peanuts - well worth a look.

I have been waggler fishing for 2 years but I want to start feeder fishing could i just buy a cage feeder and use my waggler rod its a Ron Thompson 13ft waggler rod instead of buying a new rod

 

 

Thanks

 

I would suggest getting a feeder Rod rather than risk breaking your float rod and having no rod left to use.

what feeder rod would u suggest (UNDER £20)

 

There are several reasonable feeder rods for between £20 and £25. Below this price point it's a case of "you get what you pay for".

 

What about this one? http://www.anglersnet.co.uk/affiliate-offers/cheap_feeder_rod.html Just don't expect it to perform like a thoroughbred.
