Barbel Rod?

Barbel Rod?

Post by Blonde_Tim on Mon Oct 08, 2012 10:49 am

Morning all,

getting more into my barbel fishing, and looking to upgrade my rod. looking for a 1.75lb probably, potentially looking a the drennan martin bowler one. any others to consider? torrix and interceptor 2 are ones that have cropped up from a search.

that is the upper end of the price range. just looking for a really nice bit of kit. will be paired with one of the newer 400 sized shimano reels.

Cheers all.

if you can live with the price the original Fox Kevlar Barbel rods are superb

twin tip in 1.25 and 1.75tc

and a quiver tip section

in many peoples eyes inc mine they are one of the best rods ever made for barbel/bream/roach/perch

not a rod for say the trent when carp rods are more suitable!

the action is superb

i'm currently after specimen roach and use the 1.25tc tip with 30/40g black cap feeders and 'chodernoster' type rig

I like the Harrison range of Barbel rods, but they are not cheap !!

Perhaps should have mentioned, i mainly fish the smaller 'kennet' sized type rivers hence the 1.75lb TC to deal with the occasional use of extra lead but still being enough of a players action for normal summer conditions.

i wont be serious flood fishing with them.

the Torrix have been recommended by a friend, and wish i had sent a pm about the ones that were on cemex.

i may well be tempted by the torrix still.

Nick, i have a pair of 1.25 avon quivers for perch/chub/roach so this will be an out-and-out barbel rod. or perhaps a bit of fishing for smaller carp too.

Thanks both of you for the responses.

I've got a pair of Cotswold Rods built 1 3/4lb Torrixes which are great rods but the rod I love the best for smaller rivers is a 1 1/2lb Chimera, which is a lovely rod and handles both bigger fish and floods easily. Superb.

I have a 11 foot 1.75 torrix built by bob gill on barbel fishing world and it's spot on for the kennet pairs up lovely to either a daiwa exceler x 4000 or shimano 4000d. Stunning rod, beautifully made thoroughly recommend it (prefer it to my fox Kevlar).

I like my Young's Barbel Rods

BUT I only use them for carp on a lake where the largest is about 17Lbs
