  • Shimano Exage Ax Or Super Legion?

    Hi im new to this forum and would really appreciate some advice...i am currently looking to purchase either of the following poles: SHIMANO EXAGE AX COMPETITION 14.5M POLE or the GARBOLINO SUPER LEGION 16M. i have read really good reviews on both of the above sub £500 poles. im asking for your advice and opinions on which one i should purchase and reasons for your opinions. Or if there is another pole i should consider, with a price range £500 or below/14.5 meters and above/all rounder. Your replies would be much appreciated.

    Hi mate

    I think you might be getting your Legions mixed up.
    You won't get a NEW Super Legion for £500, they are about £1250.

    The Garbolino Premier Legion is £499 @16m it is a very good up to 14.5m and good value pole for the money.
    Not tried the Shimano Exage but heard it is also a very good pole.

            thanks for your replies, question for aka and the exage pole fishable at 14.5 metres, or too heavy?


            • #7
              yes mate fishable. i havnt done it for longer than 4 hours but no probs and still nice and stiff.

                shrimpy all poles are hard work at 14m but i can say it is as good as any other pole i have used at that length it is still stiff yes i would say it is well manageable Exage AX Competition 1450 - Reviews type this into google and read the reviews

                  Hi, Shrimpy. I'm in the same boat as you Got £500 and looking for the best pole package WMAC are doing the Exage AX Competion 14.5m for £307 haven't seen a better price. Fosters got a Garbo G 50 comp and good spares for £391.49. Mullarkeys are doing a MAP TKS 30 for £429. Hope that helps. PS check out Fishing Spares - heaps of Exage spares so if thats the one you'll never struggle for bits.

                          I got the Exage too!

                          A fantastic piece of kit!

                          I visited Fosters and handled a few poles before buying mine and can honestly say that if you didnt know, comparing it to others, you would expect it to be near the £1000 mark.

                          All the best.
