    I've had one since they first hit the market and I can't fault it.ive used it for silver fishing and I've used on commercials and it's never let me down.its strong, rigid and relatively light. Up to 14.5 mtrs it's just has good as the airily but not as good at 16. I've carp to 30lb on it so you know it's strong.

          Depends how you handle it. I've had double figure carp wrap mine around in shallow water and its bent like a banana no issues. My mate broke his no 6 on a brand new 2 week old one shipping out this weekend ?

          Some people rate them others don't. It's what your comfortable with at the end of the day. You've bought one so something sold it to you.

              Had mine almost two years and absolutely love the Pole even though it has IMHO a design fault. The issue is that the pole Joints do tend to work loose in much less time than other poles, however you will soon learn to check the joints more often than you would otherwise.
              Tip: if fishing deep water and speed fishing for Silvers (Ireland) in and out quickly it's well worth taping the joints with a little insulation tape rearward's of your breaking down point...........if nothing else it just gives you that much needed confidence by eliminating the issue.
              To anyone considering a TPx don't let this put you off purchasing a top class pole that will last years if looked after.

                  I found that when i twisted the section together it eliminated this problem altogether YMMV

                    I've had loads of poles come apart when frequently shipping in and out even after ramming and twisting sections.

                    It's not just a daiwa thing so like previously said don't let it put you off

                      Hi Angus - I paid a visit to the Daiwa factory Six months after my purchase and demonstrated the twist home method to the Service Manager. He then took my No 7 & 8 and rammed it home another 6mm claiming that most of us don't realise how far you can actually push the joints home (it was impressive). I was then told the design of the joints matching tapers? is the reason you rarely get joints stuck together on a Daiwa.
                      Could also account for the reason the joints do work loose over a period of a few hours.

                      I'm still a big big fan of the TPx such is it strength and stiffness.

                        Hi AB

                        I Bought Whisker last year.
                        Brilliant pole n no complaints on poles performance/joints/handling etc etc.
                        However! only one design fault for me is this, ENDCAPS!!! =very very loose and its easy to lose or damage vital sections whilst taking out or putting away.
                        Anyone else had this problem or is it just me?
