Hi mate you have PM
Now reduced to £475.00
Absolute bargain for someone – only selling as I’ve now acquired a back up to my main pole.
Please pm me if interested
Have a look at the new shakespeare superteam feeder rods mate, I’ve got the 10 and 12 foot versions, spot on and cheap at around £60 – £70.
Mike, you have pm
Johnny boy ou have PM.
There’s a bit of a trend in our area to pay big section prizes and do away with the top 3 altogether.
Most of these matches are run as a series where you pay the peg fees upfront then your pools money is all paid out on the day, usually 5 or 6 peg sections where you can win 70-100 quid.
It has its pros and cons and you can walk away being 2nd in the match and win nothing but on the other hand you can draw absolutely crap and still have a chance of a decent payout.
It does divide opinion amongst anglers but from what I’ve seen the turnouts are always good, definitely better than most of the 10-15 peg ‘ open’ matches you see on let’s of venues.
Hi Fred, I was part of the midlands team that fished at larford this year and to be honest I was as surprised as you to hear that next years venue has been changed to Little John lakes.
At this years national there were a hell of a lot of people voicing their concerns about Furzton being a suitable venue to host a national due to its size, fish stocks and points of access and I can only think the angling council has listened to the members which must be a good thing.
I only live 4 miles from Little John Lakes and although I haven’t fished it much I do know its an excellent fishery that produces great weights all year round.
I’m sure it will result in a much better match than Furzton.
Nice one matey. I’m sure you’ll give a good workout at Larford, just don’t let Edge near it !! See you soon mate.
Shanie boy, can’t believe edge has let you go down the browning route! Lol. In fairness I had a play with one at one of the fisho’s a couple of years ago and it felt spot on, don’t doubt for a second that they’re better value than the daiwa’s but as you well know there’s not a venue in the country that you could go to and feel under gunned with the pro.
Let me know how you get on with it.
As far as I know the pools being used are – House, Extension and New.
Twelve teams of 6 so I’m guessing there’ll be 24 on each pool.
Fished it a couple of times mate, problem is most of the islands are really overgrown and it’s difficult to get tight to them. There are only 2 or 3 pegs where you can get tight up. A little pellet wag and 6mil pellets if you are between the islands can win the match. The corner pegs can produce but don’t spend too much time on them if you draw one – feed 6mils and fish paste and just hope a few carp settle. Pellet at 12metres for skimmers on the deck works well and don’t neglect a really short line on a topkit with casters – loads of quality roach, small tench and crucians can keep adding to your weight if it’s hard.
Just out of interest, is it the 14.5metre Lumphammer butt or the 16 metre one?
Thanks for the replies lads, I’ll have to have a look for the Lump Hammer butt sections – typically I sold one of them about 3 years ago, Doh !
It’s the 1.5m extension I’m after mate.
The CTK5’s and 10’s are plenty strong enough mate. Also the Milo Strippa kits fit sock on and are a bit cheaper than the Daiwa ones.
what sort of price are they going for mate?
I’ve recently bought an S class with the round rive type legs and can honestly say it’s superb. Match box have always made quality boxes – I sold my old pyramid box and had a spell with a preston space station but just couldn’t get on with the size and weight so I switched back and can’t fault it.
Andy, you have PM
Have you had a look at the Matchbox S Class range? Really well made, rock solid when set up, loads of room plus with the stacking system you can keep on adding to it. Won’t cost the earth either.
I’ve been using the preston number 5 latex for a couple of years in a match top 3 with the number 1 section removed and it’s been superb for silvers of all sizes.
I had a problem when I changed my pole – the same elastic just didn’t work as well in the new top kits, I tried maver and garbolino latex and they were even worse.
I’ve finally settled on original preston number 5 slip which is spot on – It just shows how something that one person raves about might be useless for another.
Thanks lads, I’ve got few spectron sections to sell for spares and thought I could advertise them to fit other poles as well.
Another vote for the Shakespeare’s – The Superteam Feeder is superb, one of the most versatile on the market. If you’re after a two piece try the 11’6 Mach3,another great rod and cheap compared to other manufacturers.
My 371 used to creak, from first time out – never had a section go on it but it used to fill me with dread every time I heard it ! I couldn’t stand it and got rid, shame cos it was a lovely pole.
The Shakespeare Mach3 XT 10’6 feeder is absolutely spot on for the job, flawless action through the blank but capable of bomb / light method work.
Should be able to pick one up for Â£70 so well under your budget.
Thanks for that, I’ll have to look out for it next year.
Is it done on a rotation basis between the regions like the team national?
I thought the CSSC national was on the trent at Burton Joyce last week.
Is there another one or is this a regional job, not heard anything form our organisers.
Thanks for all the advice lads, think I’ll give armour all a try and not leave my rigs hooked up to the bottom of the top kit!
Makes a lot of sense about the sunlight drying the washing up liquid/water on the elastic and causing damage.
