This product is a pre-order and will be shipped as soon as available.

Stepped-up ver­sions of the existing 13ft and 14ft Acolyte Ultra float rods and designed to Alan Scotthorne’s exacting require­ments.

Both still fea­ture super-slim blanks but pack extra strength to punch out larger floats and con­trol quality fish like carp, tench and chub easier. They are per­fectly matched with reel lines from 4lb to 6lb+ and hook­lengths from 3lb (0.13mm) to 5lb (0.16mm). A for­giving tip sec­tion com­bined with a pro­gressive middle helps to absorb every lunge while keeping hook pulls to an abso­lute min­imum. Weighing on average, just 150g and 156g respect­ively, these rods are a joy to fish with all day!


Designed in conjunction with five-time World Champion, Alan Scotthorne

Slightly stepped-up versions of the already popular Acolyte Ultra rods

Still exceptionally slim!

Still amazingly lightweight!

Available in 13ft and 14ft lengths

Traditional three-piece construction

Full SiC guides throughout

Full cork handle with Fuji DPS reel seat

Hook retaining ring

13ft Acolyte Plus weighs just 150g

14ft Acolyte Plus weighs just 156g

Great for punching out larger wagglers, sliders and stick floats on natural waters

Great for pellets wagglers and loaded missile-style wagglers on commercials

Crisp action picks up line extremely well on the strike

Designed for handling fish of all sizes but with extra backbone to deal with bonus carp, chub, tench etc

Impressive parabolic action ensures these rods will still cushion lighter hooklengths.


The slim, lightweight and exceptionally balanced 15ft Acolyte Plus float rod is ideal for rivers and deep stillwaters where quality fish are expected.


It is slightly more powerful than the 15ft Acolyte Ultra and a great choice for casting and controlling heavier floats. It is particularly suitable for medium to large wagglers, stick floats, Avons and bolo floats. The extra length offers excellent line control while the crisp and responsive tip connects with bites with lightning speed and efficiency.

This well-balanced rod is powerful yet still has an extremely slim and lightweight blank. This ensures it can be fished with all day without strain. At just 6oz (170g) it actually lighter than many manufacturers’ 13ft and 14ft models!

The Acolyte Plus 15ft is best matched with reel lines from 4lb to 6lb+ (1.8kg to 3kg+) and hooklengths from 5lb (0.16mm) down to 2.5lb (0.12mm).

A very worthy addition to the exquisite Acolyte family and designed for anglers who want the very best!
