      For those who have not seen these yet on ebay,
      take a look.

      Just put some onto my old XRS Venom as a trial
      and they look great. Not sure how long they will
      last, but then again who cares for that price !!

      Take a look :

      The stickers look great but they are there to mark the spine of the pole, i.e. the strength. Unless you know where that is they are as useful as a chocolate teapot !

      Fair point, although there are still a fair few poles being used out there which dont use an alignment system, so you would never align the spine anyway? Right?

      My old Venom which doesnt appear to have a spine visible on the carbon wrap of the sections also has more sections than the more recent longer mandrel poles.
      The numbers on the joints therefore help when looking for your number 5, rather than a number 6, which look similar in size.

      Daiwa poles for example already have these, so the stickers could be used to replace those which have worn off or numbers have faded.

      Wouldnt quite call them ‘chocolate teapot’ but I know what you mean.
      Cheers

      With regards to your Venom, I agree its not about lining up the spine. I have a Tricast myself, no alignment stickers, and I could tow boats with it !

      Only use it a couple of times a year when either at Drayton, or if draw a real snag pit.
      Are the new Tricast as strong as the old XRS range?
      Was thinking of getting rid of it in favour of one more fishable at full length, but keeping coming back to the fact that you could jump on it and probably come back with a broken foot!!!

      I would never sell my XRS 2K4. Even though it only gets used a few times a year it is great to have a pole that you know won’t break when you need to give it some serious abuse.

      Before you will invest in the fishing business and you start the fishing business you must go to the online forums to read the information about fishing. For gain, your knowledge checks the paper writing service reviews on that blog and understand it.
