This is the front feeder rest in the Quartix range from Middy, totally custom designed from scratch and developed over many months. It is upright only on one side, for ease of placing your rod, plus the upright section is slightly curved to hold the rod firmly during a bite. The resting area is especially wide, which is perfect for when you need to let go of the rod to unhook a fish. It has soft rubberised TPE channels to make it non-slip, even when your rod is angled down towards the water. You can also adjust the angle of the rest to be at any angle you like through 180 degrees, thanks to the simple press-button angle lock. The rest is quite narrow, so it fits inside a holdall without detaching it from your thread stick, while the compact overall size allows more room in your peg for nets. The brass thread is totally secure to ensure stability and strength in connection to a thread stick. There is also a Quartix back/butt rest version available to complete your setup.
