These rods have been on the Tri-Cast design table now for just over 12 months, and have been designed and built to accommodate the demands of the ever growing number of dedicated anglers who love their river fishing.
With ever increasing numbers attending River Matches on the WYE, AVON, SEVEN and TRENT. Places such as the Wye are throwing up big weights of quality Roach and Dace. When anglers start catching these big weights the fish come thick and fast and they need a rod that can cope with these shoals.
The first thing the anglers will note from the new Tri-Cast Range is the slimness and lightness of the blank. You will feel like you are holding a much shorter rod. Only when you hook into a fish do you realise the full potential and quality of the rod. The tip section maintains a softness to allow a confident striking, but the all through action reacts beautifully to the kicks and lunges of a hooked fish. The quicker the fish come and the better the quality of fish, then the better the rod performs. Large Roach and Dace can be easily swung to hand. The lightness and slimness of these blanks means that you can feel and control every movement of the fish. All 3 rods are perfect for fishing the stick float as well as the Waggler in deeper swims.
The 14ft Trilogy XS Match rod is a firmer, stiffer version, with a little more backbone to enable the angler to cast further and strike harder at a bigger distance. Line pick up is rapid to cut down on missed bites. This version can be used for the bigger fish such as Chub and Barbel and to also give the angler to exert more power in snaggy swims. Will also cope with fast flowing waters or when the river is in flood.
