Hi Tench, biggest I’d go in match kits, white hydro, but I know people who have black hydro in them !!!. I would say it’s as stiff as an Airity right through, and in my opinion better balanced, hope this helps. 🙂 🙂
Hi Tench, had my pro 2 for almost 2 years, no problems with it at all, my only issue is it could do with being a bit stiffer but apart from that it’s a great bit of kit with a good spares package etc, not tried the Excellence yet but have heard it’s very good and a bit stiffer. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I have a Trilogy Pro 2 and can honestly say it does the lot like Gazr says not the best when it’s blowing but I’ll take that for overall strength and finish etc, have tried a new Excellence, very good but not better enough (imo) to warrant me changing, I also owned an Air a while back, nice bit of kit but nowhere near as strong as the Trilogy and showed signs of wear very quickly, try a Pro 2 mate I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised as I was.
Hi Stefan, another vote for Daiwa mate. 🙂 🙂
Thanks Matt 🙂
Another vote for the Frenzee HGV, if you take way too much gear with you this is what you need, massive capacity, well balanced and thought out, just got one myself, very happy with it, well worth checking out.
Two well known locals “rent” a cheap caravan for the week but don’t stay in it, they just go home, but this keeps them within the rules so good luck to them, does make it a dearer week though.
Yes you can, but not festivals 🙂
Level teaspoon to 2 pints of micro, anymore and it makes them too sticky, if that makes sense.
I use PV1 binder, teaspoon full per lightly dampened micros.
Hi mate, another vote for the Preston bait brolley, good size, and reasonably priced, also not bad quality either.
Great read mate and most definitely understand your frustrations 🙂 🙂
Hi mate, sold this last year!, look at the date of the original post, but thanks anyway.
No mate not a silly question at all, just don’t think anyone had the answer, I’ve ask questions here before and not got any answers, hope you get your pole sorted, and no sorry I don’t have the answer either 🙂 :confused:
Well said Yiddo 🙂 🙂
Get yourself another tri-cast nice and strong, reasonable money. 🙂 🙂
Used them in the past over a broken pole section absolutely fantastic service and a genuine caring for the customer attitude, other companies should take a leaf from their book.
Rarely 😡 😡
Had a pro 2 myself for just about 12 months and can’t fault it, well balanced, strong, and IMO very well made, the whole package is very comprehensive and spares are readily available, ( not that I have needed any) have had top end Diawa, and Maver poles and this is better by miles, would not hesitate in recommending this pole to anyone, you really need to try one to see what I mean. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Applied for 4, got none , never mind.
Thanks to all for the replies/advice especially Kennyb and the lad who commented about keeping his slippers on!! 🙂 .
Tri-cast,unbeatable 🙂 🙂 🙂
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.
Great blog mate, very enjoyable read. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Great blog, made a great read, keep it up mate! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Hi mate, got a PRO 2 myself, can’t fault it, quality throughout the entire package, not too stiff and IMO the strongest top end pole on the market, also spares are available and reasonably priced, but before buying I would still go and have a waggle with one to see if it suits you. 🙂 😉
I use a Preston 4 wheel shuttle, gets everything on and packs down to get in the car ok, only thing I change on it was the wheel bearings, oe ones are s***e, hope this helps.
Couldn’t agree more with you Steve, hope the moderators are reading this, perhaps they can just delete the threads or send the posters an invoice for the advertising, 😀 😀
Why do you want to sell the M1, do you have any power tops, and what pole you after now Daz?
got my e-mail today, only applied for 2 and got 1, TBF hopefully a good day out 😀 😀
