Bear in mind that the worming Hardydemon 86 does might be a bit different to the worming you plan to do, horses for courses and all that. I'm not familiar with the daiwa osprey graphite coil 12 foot rod but the 12 foot daiwa whisker has a good reputation as a worming rod, depends on the size of the river though.

I have a 12 foot daiwa european specialist 1.25 tc carp rod I think I will stick with that, thanks for the replies.

Slightly off in manufacture, but I have the Nicholson Shrimping and Worming Special.Its 11ft 6 ins and a peach of a rod, very very versatile, I do use it on the odd occasion I spin with cranking lures (Toby, Flying C etc) and the fixed poodle reel with 30lb Braid and it performs admirably well indeed.
In my eye's its the perfect Barbel rod, sensitive tip but plenty of power through the mid and lower sections! and as its name suggests you can guess Andy N.'s design brief for the rod!.If you've not seen his video on the Cumbrian Irt, suggest you do so before any purchase of rods.
Worth serious consideration at the least!
Pedro.

Back in the days of serious worm fishing, i used and 11ft John Wilson Avon rod for low water sea trout fishing, and i have a Mac Martin 11ft for heavier water and old fashoined (now banned here in Wales) bunch of worm fishing. Both were enjoyable rods to use.

I used to use a tricast trophy triune heavy feeder rod that i was given. Its 11ft6 but has an 18 inch extension section that fits in just above the handle to make it longer. I think they were designed for launching 5oz feeders across big european rivers. The quivver tip meant i could flick worms out between the bushes where there is no room to cast.
Ive not used it for years now and weve had worming banned on my local river so i doubt itl be used again. Really well made rod that id never get rid of.
