The Maver Signature Pro 3 pc Float Rods come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

THESE long rods will give you more control of your river floats.

Designed and put through their paces by Welsh International and running-water expert Lee Edwards, there are 13, 14, 15 and 16 ft models in the range.

They’ve been designed primarily for rivers, but are also useful for waggler and slider fishing on deep stillwaters.

Coming with a 2-6 lb line rating, you’ll find a fine hollow tip that’s perfect for bagging roach and dace on a stick float, but there’s enough power through the middle of the blank to handle bigger barbel and chub.

Built on slim, responsive, high-quality blanks, the rods have EVA twist grips either side of the Fuji screw reel seat, shaped to fit your hand perfectly.

Other features include a handle made from cork as well as EVA; quality SiC guides, spaced to reduce any tangles; and a sleek, understated black finish. This is a quality rod range.

Price: £229.99-£259.99.
