Free Spirit Hi-‘S’ Barbel Feeder Rod 13ft SU

Code: 24756

Free Spirit have been working for some time on utlising the hollow feeder quiver tips for heavier specialist rods aimed at Barbel and Chub. Traditionally specimen river anglers use Avon tip sections in all but the smallest streams and rivers or the lightest currents. This is mainly due to the fact that quiver tips do not provide sufficient resistance to the flow so bite detection becomes difficult. The solution would be to use very heavy solid tips to try to counter this but then you lose feel from the tip and in many cases this still doesn’t provide enough resistance. The Hollow Carbon quiver tips provide this resistance and being hollow blend well with the curve of the rod with no harsh transition point. They allow much better bite detection than Avon tops.

Available in 3 models the Hi-‘S’ Barbel Feeder 12ft makes a great specimen match rod for targeting Barbel and Chub on rivers such as the Trent, Wye, Severn and Avon in normal river conditions. This is equipped with a push in 3oz hollow carbon quiver tip. The Hi-‘S’ Barbel Feeder SU 12ft is heavier and coming with a 5oz hollow carbon quiver tip can cope with much heavier river flows and casting weights whilst the Hi-‘S’ Barbel Feeder SU 13fts extra length makes it easier to get the line out of the flow when conditions are tough. Additional tips will be available shortly.

During testing Free Spirit have also used the two heavier rods for extreme range feeder fishing for carp on large, open bodies of water with great success.
The rods feature black framed American Tackle single leg anti-frap guides for lightness, rear cork handles with Fuji lock-down seats and EVA front cone and butt grip.

Receive 5% discount when purchasing 2 rods or 10% discount when purchasing 3 or more rods. Please note the discount is applied when the rods are added to your cart.
