    Hi everyone

    Hope you all had a better fishing weekend than me, fished Saphire Lakes near Newark. Weighed 3 carp for 12lb 7oz. The venue did'nt fish that well all round with 47lb - 1st, 25lb - 2nd, 22lb - 3rd, with the rest of the field having between 10lb to 20lb. The winner caught on the floating pole with pellet.

    Anyway thats my moan over with, i will be looking for a new pole in the next coupel of weeks. Saved about £1300.00 thinking about the Garbolino Super Legion.

    What do you think, any other recommendations.

    Regards Waggman

    speedmaster xt 16m cant go wrong and at £750 (rrp is £1500) its a lot of pole for the money and the finish is better than most 2grand poles and all the extra's you get with it as well, i should know i got one

        Garbolino Carp match-£850. Some are saying it's better than the Super Legion which is slightly annoying cos thats what I use :-(

          i own a superlegion and rate it very highly and would recomend it. but i have been hearing the carp match is very good for the thre choice is yours

            I have the Super Legion and cannot fault it to be honest. I haven't tried the carp match so cannot comment. The spares package with the SL is top notch and you should be able to get a bloody good deal with £1300.00 in your sky-rocket. Ive caught carp to 11lb with no problems with my SL and on the other end of the scale the response at 16m is excellent when targeting silvers.

              Dan will you be coming down to Sheffield for the last match of the football season.

                The SL has been out for a couple of years now, but yes, other Garbolino pole sections are compatible. When I get chance I will check exactly which ones.

                If we beat 'boro on Saturday I probably wont go to Sheffield, but if we need to win I will be there to support the lads. Fingers are seriously crossed!
