Preston Asaki Barbel specialist 1.75lb


Picked one of these rods a few weeks ago from EBay for a very pleasing price.
Never seen one before, it has arrived today and I'm pleased with my purchase.
Just wondered if any of you Chaps have any feedback on the rod?.

Kind regards

I have a pair of these rods Steve & they are excellent, loverly through action with plenty of power in reserve, I have had double figure barbel & river carp on mine handled them no problem. Overall a quality bit of kit you be disappointed.
Asaki blanks take some beating :)
Iv got the 13ft asaki feeder rod" had for around 15 years and whot a rod it is!
Better than my new 13ft preston completion pro heavy feeder rod"

used today on severn with 150 gram feeder and high water with no probs :D
