The 10ft Extricator rod was originally designed due to a heightened demand from Europe for the ultimate boatwork rod. Obviously, we obliged and made it, but what we didn't foresee was how well these rods would sell to anglers here in the UK. When we launched the 10fters in 2014 'mobile angling' was the buzz word that swept the nation and ever since anglers' across the UK have been ditching their 12ft rods and making the most of our 10ft counterparts, which are perfect for tackling any small to medium sized water, acheiving casting distances of over 100yrds. The two foot difference pays dividends when used in a mobile manner and they certainly help you put more fish on the bank taking this approach. The cork handle provides a classic look and really completes the set-up, there's also an EVA handle option in the range if you're into classic styling.
