Drennan Acolyte Ultra 13 ft Float
The 13 ft Acolyte Ultra boasts an exceptionally slim, high modulus carbon blank and weighs just 4.75 oz!
Paired with a compact float fish reel, the rods tends to sit up in the hand at an angle above horizontal, making them a joy to fish with all day. They have been designed principally for reel lines from 2 lb 8 oz to 4 lb+, which is roughly 0.12 mm to 0.18 mm diameter monofilament.
The blank feels very rigid and has a light, crisp action with little or no bounce for really excellent line and float control. At the same time, the tip action is soft enough to act as a gentle shock absorber, cushioning the strike and preventing hook pulls. This allows ultra-light hooklengths below 1 lb (0.08 mm) to be fished with confidence.
