11ft Specialist Avon Quiver 1 1/4

The 1 1/4lb test curve Drennan Series 7 Specialist Avon Quiver 11ft has a nice through action which is great for playing fish and for avoiding hook pulls.


This slightly softer-actioned 1 1/4lb test curve design is the lightest of the Specialist models. With its standard Avon section fitted, it is ideal for feeder work for large roach and rudd or fishing small live baits or lobworms for quality perch, yet still, has enough power to tackle hard-fighting tench or chub.

With the Quiver top section in place, it works extremely well on rivers with feeders and bombs when improved bite detection is required. At 1 1/4lb and with a nice, progressive, through action, it is light and delicate enough to show bites and is not over-gunned when playing finicky fish such as quality roach, even on small hooks and relatively light lines. At the same time, it does have just enough backbone so you can lean into fish and remain in control.

The rod is supplied with a choice of two top joints; a classic Avon style top and a quiver top, meaning the rod can be used for a wide range of methods. Slow taper 2oz glass and a 3oz glass Feeder Tips are supplied, both with night sight white painted tips for good visibility, even in low light. Additional softer Feeder Tips from the range can also be purchased.

The rod is fitted with a full cork handle, screw-down reel seat and full SiC line guides. It is recommended for use with main lines of 4lb to 8lb and with casting weights up to a maximum of 2.5oz.

Two equal length sections allow the rod to be left made-up ready for the next session.
