Default Roberts Windy Rod Rest Andy Thatcher

Roberts Windy Rod Rest Andy Thatcher

Rod rest head that is designed to hold the rod securely not unsurprisingly in windy conditions. Aimed at the pike angler market.

In Use
I have been using this product for 5 years.

Works well in windy conditions but these properties gives this product some advantages for the barbel angler.

Due to the extended ears, for want of a better word, the rod cannot be ripped off the rest as can happen on other types when a barbel heads for the nearest snag.

Smooth design realises the simple dream of the line not catching on the strike. .

Sensitivity of touch legering is unhindered by contact with the rest due to the gap beneath the area the rod is held.

Great product.

I like that I can still touch leger effectively using it and that you can�t get tangled. The tangling issue was a particular pain with other rests!
