This is the little brother to Drennan’s best-selling Ultralight Bomb & Feeder 10ft/11ft model.
Two top sections are supplied, each with a permanently spliced carbon quivertip. These are 3/4oz and 1oz test curves for optimum sensitivity and bite detection.
The full cork handle with screw-lock Fuji reel seat securely accommodates the two push-in intermediate sections supplied. This clever facility means the rod can be conveniently switched from its 9ft length to 10ft, or vice versa, without actually having to break the rod down and rethread it.
At both lengths, this rod is perfect for shy biting roach, perch and skimmers throughout the year. It is also a good choice for targeting F1s and small carp in the winter. The light through action absorbs every lunge and enables you to fish with light hooklengths right down to 1lb (0.08mm) with confidence.
At its shortest length, it is a particularly useful tool for narrow canals, streams and snake-type lakes. The Ultralight Mini Feeder can also be effectively fished over the top of a pole swim on windy days.
The Ultralight Mini Feeder excels when you require finesse and optimum bite detection at short range.
I was privileged to field-test the very first prototype of the Ultralight Mini Feeder and this rod has already won me plenty of prize money over the past eight months. It is ideal for light feeder and bomb fishing for F1s and skimmers, but on several occasions it has dealt with unexpected bonus carp to 10lb! Its really forgiving action soaks up the pressure and allows me to use fine hooklengths with confidence. A fantastic little rod!
