Cono-flex Nemesis Premier 13ft. Optimum Casting Wt. 6ozs.
The ‘Bully’ of the three in the Nemesis range of rods. More rugged for those heavier conditions and a lot more grunt to cast those bigger baits. A good over head thumper able to hold bottom without ripping the lead out of The sea bed so an ideal choice for the Bristol Channel.

Top division fishing!

Cono-flex Nemesis Plus SLR14 14ft. Optimum Casting Wt. 6ozs.
As it says, this is a Nemesis Plus, a foot longer, but we have not overpowered it or spoilt the balance in doing so. Some 14 footers are clumsy to use where as this one is a gentle giant.
Factory finished with Fuji BNHG guides and coasters or Fuji reel seat loose.
Going that extra length to please!

Conoflex Anubis 14 ft Optimum Casting Wt. 6 ozs.
The Cono-flex Anubis range of rods were the inspiration of Alec Harvey and Bob Gascoigne, two of the top Geordies on the North-east angling circuit. These two lads felt there was a demand for a new Cono-flex beach caster, specifically for their area and offered their services for design and testing.
The qualities required of this rod were straight forward;

  • This rod needed to be powerful to cast big baits good distances, but not break your back whilst doing so.
  • It needed to show good bite indication, but not fold up as "guts" are an important factor for when retrieving through rocks and kelp, characteristics of the rugged North-east beaches.
  • Also a light, well balanced rod that was not going to be cumbersome causing you to lose your footing on the rocks.
  • Finally as longer rods are of the modern trend these days it needed to be 14 ft in length.
  • The Anubis 6 oz is a fishing rod with a more forgiving action, the tip pulls through more, locking up slowly into the stiff slim butt. Great bite detection, it casts a dream. A very competent rock rod.
    Top Wearside angler Jim Dobie gives this one the ‘big thumbs up’.
    So for the Anubis 7 oz, Alec and Bob tried the 6 oz rod and liked it but said it still needed more, for where big fish and thick kelp was a problem.
    So we did the maths, calculated the Carbons and got it right.
    ‘Best rock rod this century’
    Alec and Bob have used Cono-flex rods all their fishing lives, so when they say it’s the best Cono-flex have done for a long time you can really believe them.
    Both models are a no nonsense build, with tried and tested Fuji BNHG guides, whipped for either reel high or low with Black/Silver or Black/Gold threads.
    The tips have a weather proofed reflective tip tape fitted to assist night visibility and an easy grip for tip to butt assembly. The butts are covered with a deluxe diamond grip tube and Fuji reel seat supplied loose, so you can fit it to your own preferred personal position.
