Specialist match float rods from the Sphere range developed specifically for river fishing. Both rods feature a 50cm solid carbon tip carefully spliced into the top section. This creates the ultra-fast and stiff action needed to pick up line and connect with bites in flowing water, but with the soft and forgiving tip needed for fine lines and small hooks. These are the ultimate in river rods and the 156 / 4.7m version performs much better than traditional Bolognese type rods. Like all Sphere rods, we use the highest quality carbon blank and fittings available. Every aspect of the rod has been has been carefully engineered to be as perfect as possible. Ultra light, ultra slim and fitted with a unique ergonomic weight reducing handle which transmits feel to the angler.
