Drennan 13ft Acolyte Ultra
The 13ft Acolyte Ultra boasts an exceptionally slim, high modulus carbon blank and weighs just 4.75oz!
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 2lb 8oz to 4lb+, which is roughly 0.12mm to 0.18mm 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 1lb (0.08mm) to be fished with coinfidence.
What Our Customers Say
“Excellent service. Bought two air pistols and did a deal with accessories. Nice gent served me and was very knowledgable.”Carl Shirleyvia Google Reviews
“Excellent service. I recently purchased a new shotgun from Gilders and when I got home I discovered that a couple of the chokes were missing from the box. After phoning the shop the missing chokes were sent directly from the importers and arrived within two days. I might add that the gun was very competitively priced.”Christopher Malkinvia Google Reviews

“Been in here a few times over the past couple of weeks. Very helpful staff and a pleasure to talk too. Called their other store on multiple occasions to see if they had items that the didn't have in Kettering. One of them (an air rifle) was in Northampton and they shipped it over to Kettering for me. Back again next day and again, a very helpful attitude from all staff! Highly recommended!”Mark Simpsonvia Facebook
