Had the 13' match which was excellent, had this stolen so replaced with acolyte 13'. Acolyte has bit more guts. The 15' quite soft in comparison in my opinion, only interested in trotting Acolyte is covering all bases for me from Dace and Roach to some big Chub on the Hants Avon. Fishing a side stream in the winter and not a lot of room for the 15'. Still a very light rod though.
