Specimen BR 9-40 £47.95
Carp Method BR 9-30 £45.95
Drennan's affordably priced Series 7 reels reflect the company’s lightning-fast response to what anglers want. Recent launches included large-bodied Carp Feeder and Big Feeder versions of the company’s smaller rear drag Feeder 9-40 and Float 9-30 models.
This time around, Drennan has taken a quantum leap into the reel market with the release of its first-ever freespool models.
The Specimen BR 9-40 and Carp Method BR 9-30 are, as you would expect, super-reliable and packed with features. You get line size identification buttons that push into the front of the spool, fail-safe bail-arms, and a smooth freespool transition mechanism that belies the affordable price.
The easy-to-use freespool system allows line to be taken by a running fish until you engage the rear lever by turning the handle forward. From then on a fish can be played in the normal manner. This simple set-up, widely used by specimen carp and barbel anglers, has become increasingly popular with pleasure and match anglers who fish commercial carp waters, as both reels work particularly well for Method feeder tactics.
