DAIWA’S Pow­er­mesh Float and Feeder Rod range is aimed at spe­cial­ist an­glers af­ter qual­ity fish on ‘pos­i­tive’ meth­ods.

The most pow­er­ful is a 12 ft 2.75 lb Bar­bel rod, for big rivers or when there’s some flow on, for use with heavy pay­loads, in­clud­ing pel­let leads, big feed­ers or PVA bag­ging.

There are also 13 ft, 14 ft and 15 ft

Float rods, with line rat­ings of 3-10 lb, suit­ing ev­ery­thing from a pole float and ’pin down the edge for ‘lumpy’ carp, to big­ger wag­glers for tench and bream, or trot­ting a balsa down the flow for bar­bel and chub.

11 ft 6 in., 12 ft 6 in. and 13 ft 6 in. Feeder rods have cast­ing weights of 50 g, 70 g and 90 g re­spec­tively. Each come with 1.5 oz, 2 oz and 3 oz quiv­er­tips.

The high-grade blanks, which in­clude a 1K wo­ven car­bon, give the power re­quired by an­glers tar­get­ing big fish, but they’ve been care­fully de­signed with a ‘fish-play­ing cush­ion’, to guard against any sur­prises, es­pe­cially when play­ing big fish at close-quar­ters.

Th­ese rods have a full cork han­dle, Fuji DPS reel seat, stain­less steel frame guides and light­weight, LS ce­ramic rings in a padded rod sleeve. Be­tween them they cover a broad range of meth­ods.
