Barder Rod Co Chris Yates Barbus Maximus 11' 2-piece c2011 in mint unused condition

An as new example of the MK II version of the barbel rod I developed with Chris Yates in the late 1980s and early 1990s, this rod is built to our very highest current specification.  It incorporates the following:

A hand-made split cane blank built to a tolerance of +/- one thousandth of an inch.
Nickel silver fittings throughout, including finely knurled handle fittings and a reinforced waterproof splint-end suction ferrule.
A beautiful olive wood ferrule stopper.
‘Buttressed’ Pearsall’s burgundy silk ring whippings – this means that each whipping is doubled back on itself for several turns before finishing so that the ring is held more securely in place.
Flor grade cork for the handle, which has an onion shaped top.
Amberfin butt and tip rings.
Sapphrite Laurels hard chrome plated stainless steel lightweight bridge rings.
A hand forged nickel silver strap to secure the hook keeper ring. Matching Pearsall’s Gossamer intermediate whippings.

Test curve: 1½ pounds.
Reel lines: 6 – 8 pounds breaking strain.
Casting weights: 1 ounce +.

This exceptional rod is available for immediate collection or delivery.

Price: £1,800
