  • Airity or z12

    Always been a daiwa pole user my trusty pro has never let me down, and many have said that to upgrade to the airity wouldnt get you a significantly better pole, however the new browning flagship z12 has had tongues wagging ????? Your thoughts please

    Haven't seen a z12 or even a z9 on the bank yet
    I bought pro x couldn't see the difference between airity and pro and for 300 quid .
    Resale on a daiwa will always be good and your old pole would make a brilliant back up pole !

          Daiwa, because of reliability and after sales service.

            Ask yourself a couple of questions,

            Of the 2 which one has spares readily available?

            Say you keep it for 2/3 years then sell on which would be more desirable & fetch more money?

              I have a Z12 pro package after selling two Daiwa Tourney Pro's. The Z12 is stiffer and that means less bounce when long pole fishing. I was fed up with the Tourney because of (1) Bounce, (2) Joints coming loose and (3) the sliver extensions stick to your hands in either the dry or wet weather.

              I have had my Z12 since May 2012 and it is a different animal to the Tourney. Very little bounce no sticking sections to your hands and no joints coming loose.

              Don't buy one unless you can have a play with one, to make sure it the pole for you. it would be much better to have a fish with one that play with it in the shop.

              I looked into the Z12 for some time, asked Lot's of questions, had a play on the bank. It feels lighter and nicer to handle and with all the extras Browning have done to the pole, i just think it is streets ahead in pole design.

                Over all the Z12 has a lot that other poles don't have.
                Pole Protection System
                no sticking sections smothered in silver paint
                Strengthened Stress Points Designing out weak spots male & female
                breaking down points that are Strengthened
                No cutting back carbon so true length & th pole is stiff.
                As said it's streets ahead in pole design.

                      Still enjoying your Z12 mate. Had any double figure carp on it yet.

                        Enjoying the banter boys keep em coming, agree with the sections parting, only time ive damaged my pole is when the 13 and 14 metere sections parted company when shipping out, causing 2cm splits on the male an female joints, the 7/8 are prone to coming loose also

                            Ive just bought a map 825! The difference between my tourny pro is unbelievable. So much stiffer and better balanced and the finish is fantastic. My tourny pro has been a good pole just got fed up of the sticky sections and joints coming loose. You can get the map 825 for £1380!!!!!! Crazy money.....

                              I swapped my Airity for a Middy XK55. I find it better balanced and the finish is fantastic.

                              I've had no problem with the sections sticking or coming apart. You can get it for around £1350. Much better value than a Pro X or Airity.
