Another vote for the drennan tech and bream at 1.75lb. They also make great floater rods

That's true, but then again many either don't have the budget, or the storage space, for multiple setups so go over gunned for some places as at least you can fish closer in with heavier rods, you can't always fish further out with lighter ones..

I had my best ever session recently, 25 fish to 29-12, from a 185,000 acre reservoir in Texas.
All on my 2 .75 ES's, while the big rods stayed at home. My old Northwestern Sealey 2.25's would have done a grand job too !

I can't disagree buddy. Walk round any 2 or 3 acre puddle and you'll see someone with 3.75 tc rods.

these high TC rods you see everywhere are for casting big distances

But how many are used for casting big distances? There is a pool about 300 yards from where I am sitting here at home and an underarm flip will see a 1.5 ounce lead in the middle of the place. Walking round you see 3.5lb tc rods with huge big pit reels attached. Bit OTT really. :-)

I take your point and accept what you say but most waters are not long distance are they?

Its fashion mostly isn't it?

Overkill is everywhere these days sadly.

I agree.

BUT.... these high TC rods you see everywhere are for casting big distances, not for pulling carp away from snags.

Rods and changing times eh?

There was a time when 2.2 test rods were classed as stepped up - that is really beefy. I had a pair of s/u Sportex rods in the 70's. Used then for getting carp away from some sunken trees. Normally I used 1.75's then.

I use 1.75's for Barbel and loads of other stuff beside now. I have had many double figure Barbel and Carp to over 32 on them. Pretty sure they would be lovely for Tench (big ones that is - otherwise a 1.5 test would be gorgeous).

Overkill is everywhere these days sadly.

I agree about the chub smallwater, 2.25 TC but very soft and lovely to play fish on, I use them for a small clubwater in winter for double figure carp

The Darenth Valley 11í 9Ē 2.25tc Rod has a lovely players action to it.
IMHO a Perfect floater or weedy big tench Rod.

Fox royale barbel in 1.75 would make excellent tench rods, and no worries about the eyes being big enough, they are big to allow debris etc to pass through caught on the line.

Chub Smallwater at 2.25lb are an excellent choice (i know not your exact requirements but worth a look)
