The Acolyte Pro is 16 metres of pure quality and takes pole fishing to a completely new level!
It has been designed from the ground up to handle modern venues and techniques, from catching carp and F1s on commercial fisheries to silverfish on canals and rivers. Five times World Champion Alan Scotthorne has been heavily involved in field-testing and perfecting the Pro for well over 12 months. We believe we have created the optimum pole in terms of performance, strength and reliability. It’s a very worthy successor to the original Acolyte pole!
The Acolyte Pro applies advancements in carbon technology for even greater strength and rigidity. There is hardly any difference in overall weight to its predecessor but, in Alan’s own words, “It carries itself even better at full length.”
It is not a cosmetic update, it features new materials throughout and an updated mandrel for sections five to 11. This means original Acolyte owners can still use their existing top 2, top 3 and top 4 kits with the Acolyte Pro. We have gone fractionally wider in butt diameter – less than a millimetre – but this increase makes all the difference with tip end recovery. A butt diameter of approximately 47mm at 16 metres ensures it is still slimmer than most flagship poles on the market, making it an absolute joy to fish with.
Importantly, the Acolyte Pro is a true-length 16m pole, so you get exactly what you have paid for. As you would expect with Drennan, the package is extremely comprehensive and can also be tailored to an individual’s own requirements.
