This short rod has been specifically designed for small bombs at medium to long distance, or method feeders at short distances like you would find on snake style lakes. For those unaware,'snake-lake' refers to waters where the distance to the far bank is never very far and the lake weaves in and out in relatively narrow channels. A usual length feeder rod tends to encourage you to over cast or makes it hard for you to feather/cushion the bomb or feeder into the water. To cushion your set-up into the lake is always a good idea in shallow far shelf swims, as it causes fewer disturbances and does not spook the carp. The action of this rod is also very, very soft in the tip to allow a smooth cast when using 1/4 a 1/4 oz bombs with single corn in the winter months.
The shorter length also allows you keep the fish low in the water and under better control until the last minute when you want it up in the net. It has the strength in the butt to catch double figure carp - it is a bit like using a modified fly rod with a superb parabolic action and a quiver registration! This rod includes two light quivers and one medium; there is no need for a heavy quiver for this rod and, with the light tip being most likely to be broken off, not with a fault of the rod, but with line-wraps, you have a spare ready to go.
