    Cadence Barbel Rods

    Anyone had a chance to have a waggle or bought one of these rods yet? The stock level on their website is reducing so people must be buying them unseen. Be interested in any feedback.

    Rods with multiple tips

    What is the view of the panel on rods with multiple tips? I don't find I need a quiver tip where I fish to the extent that a lot of the barbel bites I get merely require me to pick the rod up very quickly before it goes in the river! I can see you advantage of having a twin tip e.g. 1.5lb &...
