  • MAP Tks 40 or MAP Definition

    Hi all, Hope all is well?

    I have been advised to get the new MAP Tks 40 because my budget is under £1000.
    I can get the 40 or the Definition for £700 but I would like all your opions and advice first please.

    The thing is I need a pole that I can use on canals (which I mostly fish cause I am based in Germany and fish in Holland alot) and also on commercials when I come back to the UK.

    Tight lines all...............

    I have the Definition which is probably more a match pole than an out and out bagging pole, although is rated to a 16 elastic, it is plenty stiff enough at 14 1/2 metres for silvers, remove the number 1 section and it gives you 8 kits for the commercial scene and 8 number ones to laccy up for your canal work, have a shop around you might even find it for £600. Not tried a TKS40 other than in the pole alley but it did seem slightly better than the Definition top kits are interchangeable between the Definition and TKS40 as are the Adrenelin Pro which I suspect is the same pole as the Definition as all the sections on both poles have the same code number.

      Thanks for the reply Bri, I much appreciate it. Where abouts do you think I could get the cheapest MAP poles from?

              just purchased a map 30, they seem a very good pole,iv been silver fishing with it aswell as for big carp and it handled perfectly, light and with good interchangable kits, the tks has more of an appeal for a bigger range of venues

                i have the adrenalin pro two lads i know one has tks40 other has definition ,we think definition is a bit lighter than the adrenalin its also hybrid top kits but the short number fours from adrenalin fit both and all top kits fit each pole ,al three are very good poles
