Has anyone got experience of heavy feeder fishing on the river after barbel.
I did a session casting 6oz loaded feeders into the middle of the Trent, these were only just holding bottom. At the end of the session I had broken one of my Greys Xflite 2.75tc by the top eye, I noticed that the rod was hollow construction at the tip, so not sure if the blank was damaged or was not man enough for repeated casting of big feeders.
I was told that when the river is in flood in the winter I will need to step up to 8oz feeders to hold in the flow.
I now have to decide what is the best way to procede with rods, do I go cheap and cheerful and replace as I break them or look for a specialist rod which should last.
