They are rated to 12 solid so i assume 6 doubled up or 7 at most
i used the 901 today for the first time in a small match . I drew in the middle of the straight with every peg in on my side of lake so not a good start.
i started at 13m and could not believe how light the pole was and how strong the sections felt , first fish was a nice 5lb common which was foul hooked and went barmy – pole didnt even shudder . then went to 16m and pole was still so stiff it was unreal , i was hitting roach bites shallow on caster and hardly missed a bite . Later on i used the top kit plus 2 sections as a margin pole and never felt the need to get margin pole out and i had a couple of double figure fish .
To sum up , the 901 is absolutley amazing , it is the stiffest , lightest and strongest top end pole i have ever fished with and iv had a few top end poles in my time . And for the diawa lovers out there , forget the arity and air , this pole blows them away .
got my 901 today , cant wait till sunday so i can actually fish with it – with a power top kit with 12 – 20 maver elastic it feels bloody amazing .13/08/2013 at 6:37 pm in reply to: hair rigging worm on the pole whats your opinions ? #168254
Ive been hair rigging a small worm section for a couple of years when fishing shallow , you can usually catch a few fish on each section before you need to replace it .
and i was doing it before mr scothornes feature , so were most of my mates 😉

bagging wag works best on there
maybe on trotters or moby but not on gills mate .
best to either fish tight to island with either meat or worm and caster – and have a shallow line down the track with either pellet or caster. Margins can work if you have a bit of room.
Cannot give up to date info as not fished there for over 6 months .
i sat directly behind one of the anglers supposedly using a spade and in waders at lindholme on saturday. yes he used waders as it would not have been safe to clear some reeds , branches etc from his margin swim without getting in lake – this was done as much for fish safety as anything else as any carp hooked would have potentially got tethered in reeds by line . He defenitely did not use a spade . Neil did come round to see what had been done and he agreed that what he had done was fine .
i did not clear my margin swim – it had been done earlier in week by another angler before a match otherwise i would have done so myself.
before I bought my latest pole I had a good look around at what was available , trying most on the bank – thanks to various anglers for letting me try their poles. I decided the 801 was the best pole for me , in my opinion it is lightish , very stiff , very strong , fantastic finish to all sections – i used stiffer , lighter, maybe slightly stronger poles , but the Map 801 seemed the perfect compromise so was my choice.
the fact you can choose your own choice of top kits was also a bonus.
having said that , i agree with others re trying poles for yourself , just because the 801 suits me doesnt mean it will be right for you.
as above , also Davies angling
if you cant think of something good to say you really should keep quiet .
She was a mother and grandmother – how would you feel if somebody said that about your relation on the day she died??
the underside of a heron is light grey and fish swim near them .
i use grey top kits if im fishing shallow or tight to far bank .Dont think it makes any difference in deeper water though.
you already know what im going to say james ,
get the 701 unless you need the cash difference to get extra top kits , elastics etc :p
try to get some Mosella pole genies , they are a bit more expensive , but they have a small velcro fitting so they stay on the top kit until you take them off
Mosella J range is good , but the new Mosella Ozone range is better , the pink 10-14 is lovely and smooth , powers up nice and gentle 🙂
surely the real problem is what is perfect for one person may not be the best for somebody else .
realistically , is there really such a thing as ” the best pole “
just so people know —
Paul hasnt been banned – bread as feed has been .
Paul has decided he doesnt want to fish the venue again as he thinks it isnt fair .
think you will find plenty of people beat Paul at tunnel while he was fishing bread .
to be fair , i hardly fished there last year – but that was because i wanted to fish elsewhere not because of Paul.
he is a real nice bloke and its a shame , but tunnel is a business and if they think it affected attendances you cant really blame them.
I used to use preston green 13h ,
but i now use Mosella Ozone pink which is rated 10 – 12 .
try ringing heyford fishery – 01327 370004
or Avalon fishery 07855825089 – they are in partnership with Mosella 😉

it was stiff light and strong , and it had short sections .
I remember seeing one at hayfield it had wraps on most sections so although it might be light and stiff i would question its strength probably better suited to bloodworm fishing on canals rather than commercials.
I actually owned one and used it on commercials , i used to fish Heyford a lot in its hey day and that meant some decent carp , i had them to well over double figures with no problem
the tournament 710 was not just for marketing , it was the best pole by an absolute mile when it was released – and i saw a few in use , including mine 😉 I had a very well paid job at the time 😉
it was stiff light and strong , and it had short sections .
what colour is the stacking system , black or silver ?
It deffinitely fits in a Mosella kompact 4 or 8 .
i use the same pole and it fits in my luggage 😉
i always feed it fairly wet , so it lingers in the water 😉
Well done kev , and the rest of the total fishing team – top result , to be beaten by team marukyu is no disgrace
you must have beaten some top class teams to come second 🙂
i think he will loose anyway , so evens is a poor price 😎
heyford is fishing hard at the moment .
i personally think there is plenty of fish in there , but there is also an abundance of natural food due to the far bank reeds , weed down the track and quite a few branches in the water .
to catch well tyou need to fish th ein form pegs – bends and bridges – you will have to fish tight to the far bank and beware of the snags in the water .
pleasure nets arent too bad , but matches are being won with 15 – 20lb
Not actually uesd one , but we got them in shop and they look decent enough .
like previous poster siad , korum / preston dont sell rubbish
The white is lovelyt and soft ,
the pink 10 – 14 is also really soft but with plenty of power to kick in 🙂
wouldnt 2mm meat cubes float ?????
meat is usually associated with catching decent stamp of fish so why would you need 2mm cubes , just put through a meat cuttet twice or grate through a maggot riddle
I used to have the 4 , but ive now got the 8 – it is more bulky but you can fit kit in more easilly.
buy the 8 , you wont regret it , its deffo the best luggage on the market
