This is the rod I exclusively use to belt a 50g Kamasan Black Cap maggot feeder across the River Trent in summer and I’ve landed barbel to 12lb on it plus a 21lb common carp!
The Nan-Tec Classic is a brilliant rod with the ability to cast a fair distance (although it is not an out-and-out casting machine) while remaining sensitive enough to feel the fight from smaller species like roach.
I fish a tough, 8lb reel line and 6lb 12oz or 7lb 6oz breaking strain high-tech hooklength with three maggots on a size 16 or 14 hook, and catch everything!
One session on the Middle-Trent I landed 13 different species – bullhead, gudgeon, ruffe, roach, dace, bleak, perch, eel, jack pike, skimmer bream, proper bream (to 6lb), chub (to 4lb 4oz) and barbel (to 8lb 12oz).
