      Tri-Cast Excellence, every time I shipped out and got to the butt it broke under it's own weight! They kept replacing them and in end I got a full refund and bought a Daiwa! The joints come loose a lot but all in all, good poles and fairly cheap spares that are always available.

        Daiwa Airity - loved the pole, hated that it came apart alot and was horrible to ship. Garbolino 995 was an excellent all round pole and very nice to use, never had any problems apart from cracking the no7 with my thumb when fishing to hand on the river. Garbolino G10 had a nightmare with the no5's snapping in half (3 of them) when fishing shallow and the 13m section broke when striking at on the drop bites on the canal. Browning Z9 love everything about it apart from the alignment stickers on my no8 section aren't in line ??

                        Another vote for daiwa poles.
                        I use the TDR competition 16mtr and its brilliant.

                          Sensas 774 is over a grand! Never had a problem with mine.

                          Daiwa SR range are good value!!!
