Cygnet | 20/20 2- and 3-Rod Snugs
RRP £10.99 to £13.99 | Online: cygnettackle.com
Super-narrow buzzer bars became the ultra-cool accessory to have, and I always marvelled at the fact that you could actually get any rods at all on them, but you can, and Cygnet really set the pace with the Snugs range. They have further expanded the range with these 16mm versions, which look awesome. The build is great, and using solid bar for the cross pieces means they are super-strong; you’d have to be doing something really stupid to bend it. The 2-rod versions all cost a very nice £9.99 each, and come in the following widths: 4.5, 5, 5.5, and 6ins. The 3-rod versions retail at £12.99 each in the following sizes: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, and 11.5ins. I openly admit that I love the 3-rod version, and it will break my heart to return it after this test is done. In fact, I might see if the guys at Cygnet would like a long-term test!
