Acolyte Pro Margin Carp 9.5m Pole + 3Top Kits
X2 Elasticated Top Kits
X1 Top Kit
Condition: 9/10, comes with bag.
The Acolyte Pro Margin Carp is built on the same mandrel as the Acolyte Pro Carp pole, but is even stronger. That means the top kits (not individual sections 1 & 2) and sections three to seven can potentially interchange between these two poles. This is very useful if you need an even stronger pole for heavy duty margin fishing or simply want a spare or ‘back-up’ pole at significantly reduced cost. As with the other Acolyte poles the male & female joints are reinforced to help reduce wear and prolong pole life.
This seven-section pole complete with reversible mini extension is 9.5m straight from the bag and needs no cutting back to accept our largest 5.4m internal PTFE bushes which come supplied. It is ideal when used in conjunction with thick, hollow elastic such as our popular pink 14-16, red 18-20 and Orange 20+ Carp Bungee.
The special Margin Kits supplied measure 2.33m and are designed to be shorter than the 2.89m kits supplied with the other Acolyte poles, as we believe it is the optimum length for more demanding, close-range work. Having a shorter length of elastic offers you much more control over a big fish, which can be really important when tackling snaggy swims. Usefully these Margin kits are the same length as the Double Two carp kits from the Acolyte pole range when the lower D2 part is removed providing even more versatility.
In the standard package one of the Margin Kits comes with the special Ghost Tip which have been specially treated with a light grey paint finish. This has been designed for ultra wary fish that could potentially be spooked by a dark carbon pole tip waving over their heads especially in very shallow margins.
The standard package comes with a total of three Kits (one in the pole and two spare) but, as with all Drennan poles, you can tailor this to your own requirements. Just ask your Drennan stockist for your mix of kits & sections.
Each kit comes with our own unique factory-fitted Side Pull Slots as standard and is also supplied with Roller Cones for unrivalled, super-smooth elastic performance.
The new Easy Fit pure PTFE bushes supplied have a series of tiny ‘crush ribs at the end which means that they will simply push-fit very securely without any need for glue.
