Monkey Lunge (Feat)
You can quickly recover from your lunges, helping you to avoid counterattacks.
Prerequisites: Level 11, Lunge (Feat), Acrobatics 11 ranks
Unlocks: Weapon Focus (Feat), Weapon Specialization (Feat)
Benefit: You can use the Lunge (Feat) to increase the reach of your melee attacks by 5 feet until the end of your turn, without suffering a penalty to your AC. All attacks made with this increased reach receive +1 to-hit and +1 base weapon damage. This bonus to-hit stacks with the bonus from Lunge.
Note: If you are using a reach weapon, this increases the reach by 5 more feet, but also increases the area adjacent to you which is not threatened, by 5 feet. If your weapon has the Inclusive Reach property, which normally threatens adjacent squares and the squares in its reach, it gains a 5-foot area adjacent to you which you do not threaten (in addition to gaining 5 more feet of reach).
Note: You cannot use this feat if you are encumbered by a medium or heavy load.
Normal: You take a -2 penalty to your AC until your next turn when making a lunge attack.
