Thread: Canal rod

    Default Canal rod

    Anyone recommend an easily available 11ft rod suitable for squatt/punch on the canals with 2lb lines and fine hooklengths?Ive given up looking for Vinnie Smith,Polly rods etc as they are getting mad money when they(rarely)come up.

    Three current rods you could try to get a look at, Drennan Matchpro Ultralight 11', Drennan Acolyte Ultra 11' and the Browning Sphere Hot Rods Silvers Edition 11'6". The latter is closest to the canal rods of old, but you pay for it.

    I have 2 Vinny Smith Canal Rods. I'd be happy to sell one of them. The handles were re-built by Tricast last year and are the latest screw fitting.
