Advanta X5 Float Rod,
Float fishing can be one of the most successful tactics to employ when match fishing – particularly if the water is clear and you’re concerned that putting a pole out will spook any fish. This is why it is important to always have a top quality float rod with you on the bank, as it allows you to mix up your tactics and fish in a versatile manner on the bank. The Advanta X5 Float is the ideal rod to have to hand, whether you’re planning on float fishing from the off or you’re turning to it as a last ditch attempt to get some weight in your keepnet. As with all Advanta products, not only has it been manufactured with performance in mind but it has also been designed to offer exceptional value for money, too.
The Advanta X5 Float Rod has been manufactured from 24T carbon, ensuring that it looks good and performs to an incredible level on the bank. Ultra-slim in design, this is one rod blank which has a truly unbelievable power-to-diameter ratio – allowing you to punch out when you need to. However, it isn’t only on the cast where this rod shows its strength and it can also respond well under the bend of any large fish. This is a highly versatile performance system which can excel in any environment, making it the ideal bankside companion for the committed match angler. In fact, at 12ft in length, this rod offers maximum versatility – allowing you to target smaller match venues as well as massive open waters with equal confidence. This rod looks good, too, and has been finished in a sleek matt black – perfect for putting the fear of god into your competition.
The rod has been furnished to equally high standards, in order to ensure that it is an outstanding all-rounder. This includes an exclusive, secure, screw-lock reel seat, bespoke designed by the Advanta team for this very rod, in order to ensure that your float fishing reel is held in the perfect position throughout your time on the bank. This allows you to target a whole host of fish at a wide range of distances with the confidence that you’re going to be getting the most out of your reel at all times. The rod has been fitted with lightweight SS guides, too. These are highly durable guides which have been designed to offer minimal abrasion resistance no matter which line type you favour – ensuring that you’re able to experiment with tackle combinations using this rod.
The Advanta X5 Float Rod has been finished with a quality cork/duplon handle. This mix of materials ensures that it is able to offer the benefits of both models and it provides you with the classic finish of a traditional rod whilst also offering the additional grip that you’ll require as a modern match angler. To top the entire outfit off, the rod has been equipped with a hook keep ring. This nifty little gadget allows you to transport your fully made-up rod around the bank without worrying that your hook is going to catch on bankside foliage or other tackle items.
