Advanta was established in 2011, and is a brand which is committed to the manufacture of top end tackle solutions which don’t threaten to break your bank account. Originally, the brand focussed on products for the dedicated carp angler but, over the years, its range has expanded and it now manufactures a full range of tackle for the coarse and match fishing fanatic, too.
X5 is Advanta’s dedicated match fishing range, and it contains a collection of products which the match angler simply couldn’t do without, including pole rollers and landing nets – to name just a few. This Power Float Rod forms an excellent addition to the growing X5 range, and the Advanta team are certain that it is soon to become a product that you won’t want to be without on the bank. There are two different rods in the range, allowing you to choose the tool which is best suited to your style of angling. The first rod is an 11ft option. This is ideal for the angler who likes to fish at mid-range and it comes in a two piece construction. The second option is a standard 12ft rod. This is ideal for the angler who likes to be versatile in their fishing as it is as suited to close range angling as it is to longer, distance hits. It, too, offers two piece construction, ensuring that both of the rods in this range can comfortably fit into most coarse fishing luggage options.
Both of the Advanta X5 Power Float Rods are built on high performance 24T carbon blanks. 24T is an extremely tough and durable material which offers you everything that you will have come to demand from your float fishing setup. What’s more, this rod blank is ultra-slim. This not only ensures that this rod is a good looking outfit but it also gives the rod an incredible fish-playing responsiveness which you really need to experience in order to believe. The power to diameter ratio on this rod is exceptional, and ensures that you can target a range of species in a variety of conditions safe in the knowledge that you’re not going to lock up when you’ve hooked your target fish.
The furnishings on the Advanta X5 Power Float Rod are equally as high performance as the rod blank itself. First things first, you’ll notice that this rod has been fitted with an exclusive reel seat. This reel seat has been manufactured from 3k carbon, ensuring that it can hold your coarse fishing reel in the ideal position throughout its use on the bank. The rod boasts SS guides, too, which have been finished in a stylish gun metal grey – as have the collars and caps. These look stunning against the matte black of the blank. The overall look is completed with a parallel slim line cork handle, which ensures that the cosmetics of the rod are understated and timeless.
Both of the rods have been fitted with hook keeper rings, too. These are ideal for when you’re roving around the bank, as they hold your hook in place and prevent it from getting caught on any foliage. The Advanta X5 Power Float Rod is the ultimate tool for targeting roach, bream, chub, and barbel, especially when you’re employing float fishing tactics. Whether you’re looking for a new rod to add into your match fishing mix or you’re in the market for that perfect item to kick start your collection, the Advanta X5 Power Float Rod is ideal for your needs.
