Avon rods started out intended for smaller barbel, bream, chub, and the like, and traditionally have a test curve (the weight at which the tip will bend at a 90 degree angle) of 1lb. However, in recent years the test curve has become slightly stiffer, and today test curves of 1.25lb or greater are more common. This development has made the avon rod very versatile, and it performs well across the disciplines. Most avon rods come supplied with two tips, the classic avon tip and an additional quiver tip. This dual set up opens up a range of possibilities for fishing with the avon rod, and it is now known as a good general purpose rod, although many anglers still say it performs best with the barbel, bream, chub, and tench for which it was orginially intended. Indeed, some avon rods are billed as barbel rods exclusively, although of course this doesn’t effect their performance with other fish. Length wise, an avon rod tends to come in between 11 and 13 ft.
