Drennan has just released a selection of Ghost Kits to complement its ever-growing range of poles.
The special light grey coloured paint finish was first seen on the 2.33m Ghost Margin Kits sold with the superb Drennan Acolyte Margin Carp pole. After being such a resounding success, the forward-thinking company has now added the same ‘Ghost’ finish as an option to its standard Carp Plus tops. These are designed for the standard 2.89m Carp Kits and Double 2 Carp Kits that come as standard with the Acolyte, Acolyte Carp and Series 7 poles.
Light grey top sections are becoming an increasingly popular sight on commercial fisheries up and down the country. The concept was first pioneered many years ago by the legendary Denis White, who famously painted his top kits to match the colour of a heron’s belly. A number of top anglers now advocate the use of light-coloured top kits, particularly when shallow fishing.
A spokesman for Drennan commented: “Pole anglers are always looking for an edge. Although not invisible, a light grey or white finish reflects more light than black carbon, which can therefore help to reduce its silhouette. Fish can definitely spook and back off from pole tips waving over their heads, so this is one small way of trying to reduce that happening so often.”
Usefully, a Drennan Ghost Kit doesn’t cost any extra than the equivalent top kit without the special paint finish. You can purchase them separately or tailor any Drennan pole package to your own requirements by choosing the top kits that best suit the fishing you do.
