Greys have just released a new range of purpose-built predator boat rods under the Prowla banner.
There are two new rods in the range - the 10ft 3in XS boat and the 10ft 6in Platinum boat.
Both have 3lb test curves that allow the easy casting of very large and heavy baits together with the power to control very large and hard fighting pike. But this strength in the blank tapers off to a much finer and more flexible tip that helps cushion those last-minute lunges as the pike tries to shake the hooks free in the dying seconds of the fight.
In this in-the-boat test Angling Times editor Richard Lee and fishing buddy Terry Knight took both examples over to Ireland to put them through their paces during their annual predator lough fishing break.
To see how they got on with both styles of Greys Prowla rod watch the video below.
