    Cheers

    Hi Daz, a friend of mine was sponsored by Maver and had 1of the first signature 1000s, he really rated it, said it was marginally heavier than his 88 but not as it made a massive difference and he liked the “fighting 5&6” sections only I thought they made the pole a little too heavy, tip recovery very fast and also quite a bit stiffer than an 88, but overall a very good pole nonetheless, hope this helps.

    My mate has got one,and used it 5-6 matches then,the next three matches in a row,the pole bust on the strike, twice no.6 and then the 13m section went in his hand,he still loves it though and wont hear a bad word said …haha

    i personally thought the new garbolino super legion was the best new pole along with the map 901,that i have handled at a show this year.

    You know my feelings on it Daz I have the 800 and it has been by the best Maver Pole Ive ever had and its had a fair bit of use and one snag session where it performed really well. The matchlite kits transform the pole at distance but imho they are not right for heavy elastics and more suitable for smaller carp and F1 fishing. I use a mixture of the powerlite and easyflow kits which are as strong as! The fighting 5 and 6 are invaluable for short fishing and margin work.
