Drennan Quick Change Beads are precision made for a perfect fit. They enable you to change your hooklength instantly and also act as a shock bead when fishing a running leger or feeder. These Quick Change Beads are precision made from high quality English tooling, so that the two components have a nice consistent fit. The outer bead is semi flexible and grips in place securely ove the internal connector. This connector has a small recess above the central hole to accommodate the barrel of the knot, which is formed when attaching the reel line. The internal unit has an average breaking strain of 20lb (9kg). Rather than an obtrusive black, Drennan Quick Change Beads come in much more discrete green and camo colours.
The Drennan tackle company was founded in 1967 when its current Managing Director, Peter Drennan, began producing a small range of Balsawood floats in his mother's garage. Having served his angling apprenticeship with some of the finest anglers of that era; Dick Walker, Peter Stone, the Taylor Brothers and England's first World Champion, Bill Lane, the young Peter Drennan was already recognised as something of a tackle expert. With the ability to design superior floats and the craft skill to make them, the original one man business expanded steadily from those humble garage beginnings.
Drennan International is very strong on the engineering side, from Computer Aided Design (CAD), through toolmaking, high-tech plastics processing to building its own special purpose production machinery. On all aspects of product design, manufacture, packaging, quality control and customer service, the company has expert anglers in key positions.
The criteria for Drennan is always that the product must be good value for money, trouble free and must help catch fish.
