The rods featured a custom machined screw-down anodised aluminium reel seat to hold the reel securely. Handles were constructed from top-grade flor cork with a strip of corklon on the leading edge for extra durability. Fuji Y SiC guides were standard with olive green whipping and a high gloss finish. Float rods included the 13ft Specialist and Specimen range, the 14 and 15 ft Specialist rods, and eventually the 11ft 10 inch lighter model. The popular Avons included the 11ft Specialist, the 11ft 6in Specimen, the 11ft 6in Specimen Smuggler, and the 11ft Specialist Smuggler, both of which came in four sections for ease of transport. Eventually, there would be a 12ft Avon/Carp model for heavier work and big river barbel. The 11ft and 12ft Specialist Feeder rods came with three carbon tips with 1,2 and 3-ounce ratings as did the 13ft Specimen Feeder model. The 10ft Ultralite Bomb rod was supplied with 1 and 1.5-ounce tips and was designed for slower rivers in tough conditions when small bites were to be expected.
