  • Pole problem

    I've broken another section on my Garbolino 796, first it was the No4 this time the wind got it on Sunday and broke the No6. I have replaced the No4 previously at a acost of about £120.00, and am now fed up with the thing. Has anybodey else heard of this pole having problems breaking. I have used many poles before and this has been the only one I seem to break constantly.

    I think i'll change, but to what, fishing both commercials and canals??

            man like the bro said i broke my top4, and also 2 top twos. man, i was gutted and all i did was pull the carp away from the reeds and BANG it went shooting across the lake with the top2. got it back, but snapped where it joins in on the section. any tips on getting it out would be a great help
            (think garbolino has big problems)
            and when i e/mailed darron cox to tell him the problem im having he didnt even get back to me (says it all really).

              Thanks for some of the input, I think the walls are too thin, you only have to apply a slight pressure and the pole starts to squash and form an oval shape. With the Dawia and Shimano poles I have had before this did'nt happen.
              Looks like i've got to buy a new No6 section as so I can sell it and move on. I'll probaly try another Dawia.

                        I have owned a Power legion for the last 4 years and had no problems whatsoever. Also had a super legion for the last 2 years which broke a No6 first time out for no reason. A couple of small hairline cracks have appeared over time in a couple of sections but only in the exterior. It wasn't bought as a carp pole but have landed doubles on it and it keeps going. If I know I'm carping I obviously use the power legion because it can even be used as a margin pole it is THAT strong. The cracks in the super are probably from my abuse but they are both still great poles. I have ordered a Super G10 and have a buyer for my super legion waiting but the power legion will stay in the holdall forever. The power kits on the SL,PL, and 796 are all the same so shouldn't give up the ghost that easily as they are rated to 20 elastic.
                        Sections 4,5, and 6 should go in that order before the top 2s. In my opinion the blurb in the brochure is misleading as it says you can comfortably fish elastics up to a size 20 with the SL and 995, that effectively render their margin poles obsolete! 16 elastic max and a soft 16 at that. A problem I can see is that commercial carping now comes in a variety of shapes and forms and you need to be more specific in matching your new pride and joy to your fishing,... and for the manufacturers to stop implying their poles will cover all disciplines when clearly they won't.

                          Just checked and despite the 796 using the same power kits (K2P/SPLV) it doesn't mention using 20 elastic in it's description for some reason. It also says the premier legion has a TRUE elastic rating of 20. My mate bought one on my reccomendation and he too bust a No4 but that was using it as a margin pole and hooked a mid double under his feet. Again I would say a soft 16 max.

                            i know what you are saying,and i love my 796
                            but if you are fishing 13 and a half metres to an island with snags to your left and right you need some control over the fish to keep them away from the snags.
                            i was using a red hydro when i broke the number4 and did nothing diffrent to what i would do with my old preston pole and that has never broke on me.
                            i did start on a black hydro but was losing to many floats and had no control over what the fish wanted to do or where it wanted to go so i swapped to a red.
                            may be we just expect to much from these pole?
