This is a delightful barbel rod to cover most of your leger and feeder work on both small and medium sized rivers. It is supplied with both a solid and push in quiver tip rated at 1 1/2 lb. The Barbel Duo-Lite has been designed to fish with feeders and leger weights up to 3 oz in weight and hook links as low as 4 lb breaking strains. Both tips are forgiving allowing you to use hooks down to about size 16 without fear of straightening or pulling. This is the perfect rod for pellet, boilie, particle and maggot work on rivers like the Avon, Stour, Kennet, Teme and even the Upper Severn.
The action is such that there is loads of hidden power to keep big fish under control whilst at the same time you have the assurance that you don’t get smashed on small hooks and light links. The solid tip is just perfect for the traditional downstream work whilst the quiver tip section and its interchangeable tips are ideal for detecting upstream drop-backs as well as absorbing fluctuating currents and debris to ensure that the rig isn’t dislodged.
Although this rod was originally designed with barbel in mind it is also ideally suited for stillwater long range feeder work when targeting species like tench and bream.
