Sphere Pellet Waggler

By popular request, we have extended the Sphere float rod range to include an 11'/3.3 m, 2 piece Pellet Waggler rod. This rod is ultra slim and unbelievably light - weighing in at less than 5 oz/150 gr - which makes the constant casting that is usually need for this technique much less tiring and easier to sustain. The blank has the classic Pellet Waggler parabolic action, but is fast to pick up line due to the inherent stiffness of the ultra high modulus carbon used in its construction. The rod was carefully tested to ensure it has the perfect power for match sized carp. As with all Browning Sphere rods, the Pellet Waggler is finished to the highest standards and features the unique Sphere ergonomic handle.
