THE BUZZARD RODS "ROAMER SYSTEM"
THE 3 PIECE 9' STALKING RODS
These superb stalking rods are 9' with a 2.75lb test curve and are 3 sections.
They come in a matt finish blank and my standard build on them is full cork, fuji bc or american tackle black dps reel seat, matching collars, 40mm minima guide set with an sic anti frap 12mm tip guide and are wrapped in black with minimal black detailing.They can of course be built to your exact specification if required.
The rods although only short, have an amazing action to them with a lot of reserve power in the butt when required, my field tester has landed fish to 38lb on them in heavy weed!
These rods have a big cult following from the early carping days .
I am now able to offer, a superb quality, unique to Buzzard Rods, 9' 3 piece rod holdall custom made for me by cotswold aquarius in dpm or green colours.
These holdalls will fit your 3 rods with extra space to fit the big pit reels now favoured by so many anglers and have extra internal padding, a zipped bankstick pocket, a zipped lead/tackle pocket and an open pocket for a 2 piece net and handle.
Along with the holdalls i can now supply tip and butt elasticated protectors specifically made to fit these rods, again made by cotswold in dpm and green
The holdall will carry everything you need for a shorter roving session as everything is stored together in one unit and makes moving on to showing fish quick and easy.
THE LANDING NETS.
I am now able to offer a 6' 2 piece, 1k matt finish, reverse taper landing net with screw joint fittings and a stainless spike for when you need to rest the fish. The poles also float making landing fish a bit easier so no need for those awfull net floats.
there is also a 6' handle for anyone looking for a full 1 piece option.
The net arms are full carbon (harrison) and feature stainless and alloy fittings and the nets are available in a 42" and 50" options with a deep green mesh for anyone who requires just that bit more net.
These poles dont exist anywhere else and are exclusive to buzzard rods and the blanks are rolled for me by harrisons. The nets feature a very neat, exclusive , anodised aluminium spreader block.
The net poles will also be for sale on their own for anyone who just wants to fit their own block and net.
