Which one is it the standard or the plus. They were designed for fishing the north east coast where its all snaggy. They are also meant to be good casting rods. I would love a pair if i could afford them.

Hi Bookie,

great rod you have - I myself use an Anubis for tourney casting, I have compared it to many others and have the impression it has as much power as any tournament rod, but still is fisheable, so won't bite back too much when you mistime. Still, it is more than capable of amaing distances, and I personally reckon it as one of the most underrated rods on the market when it comes to distance.

Just my personal thoughts of course.

You have PM!

Cheers,


Dirk

Cracking Rod by the way, probably best cod pole ever built for east coast! Only had the chance to use a friend's once but was well impressed with it. Taken from Conoflex's website:

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 BNLG 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.
Blank - £348.82, Fully Factory Built - £433.42

its a good strong rod but i do think super sport just in the lead tho.. the anubis is only a spare rod.
