using rolling meat

hi i am looking to give the rolling meat a try this year. can someone recommend what test curve rod and length is best and also a suitable reel. also how does one use this method if say the river is not clear it seems like its a hard method to learn. i will be mainly trying it on the ribble. also people who use it do you find you catch more fish on this than on static methods like using feeders thanks.
Hi Josh

I see from your Dane thread that you are quite new to barbel fishing, don't know how well you know the Ribble? but If you are going to try the rolling method on this river, I'd pick your area carefully as it can be very snaggy with bedrock and boulders.

I fish meat quite a bit in the summer months on here, but most of the time it's under a float. Good luck
