13ft Acolyte Ultra The 13ft Acolyte Ultra boasts an exceptionally slim, high modulus carbon blank and weighs just 4.75oz! acolyte_ultra_13ft acolyte-ultra-13ft-14ft-1 Paired with a compact float fish reel, the rods tends to sit up in the hand at an angle above horizontal, making them a joy to fish with all day.
They have been designed principally for reel lines from 2lb 8oz to 4lb+, which is roughly 0.12mm to 0.18mm diameter monofilament.
The blank feels very rigid and has a light, crisp action with little or no bounce for really excellent line and float control.
At the same time, the tip action is soft enough to act as a gentle shock absorber, cushioning the strike and preventing hook pulls.
This allows ultra-light hooklengths below 1lb (0.08mm) to be fished with coinfidence.
