Utilising ground-breaking 46T Graphite blanks and the finest Alps componentry the Hydrograph rods have a super fast action and unparalleled vibration transmission, meaning even the most subtle of takes are easily detected. Once loaded up, the forgiving mid-section ensures you can ride out the violent head shake while the low-down power is enough to turn the head of even the most stubborn fish.

Designed to be the ultimate canal softbaiting weapon. Super fast action for accurate long distance casting, exceptional bite detection and hook setting capability, the Hydrograph 8’ ensures you are able to keep your lure in the bite zone as long as possible and makes sure even the softest takes of the softbait. At 8ft in length it is also suitable for egg rolling for those crisp winter mornings on the canals.
The pinnacle of purpose built canal rods, the Hydrograph 9’ is designed specifically for rolling eggs for monster canal trout. The extra fast tip section and super high-modulus graphite blank results in extraordinary bite detection, crucial for picking up the often gentle takes when the fish are feeding on eggs. It has a forgiving mid-section making it much less likely to pull out the tiny egg-hooks during the fight, while also having more than enough power to turn those 30lb+ submarines. At 9ft in length casting small dropshot weights long distances is a breeze, and it also provides extra clearance from the bank when walking your eggs down the canal.
