anyone thinking of buying a new pole,should seriously consider the
tri-cast "finesse".i am a pole angler since 1978,and in my opinion this pole has everything.strength.balance,a great spares list,the whole package.Mine has been in constant use for 6 months and i cannot fault it,a really excellent all round pole

Not quite as stiff as a G10 - the pole I use - but still stiff , light and bloody strong , also , the finish is superb , it slides through the hand.

Lets just say I am seriously thinking of changing from Garbo G10 to the Tricast Aristocrat - and I do a lot of silver fishing in the winter !

I too own a G10. Recently I've bust a few top kits on fish (although it is my fault really, I used the match kits for carping). I used to use the match kits on my tourney pro and had fish to 18lb with no probs.
I'm thinking of getting a Tri Cast Aristocrat before the year's out.
Would be good to hear any comments on this pole.
I want strength and that means Tri Cast.

Tri-Cast Aristocrat: Not as stiff as the G10,but then you won't be breaking no.6 sections. Not as light as Maver???, but then you won't be breaking no's 3,4,5&6 sections. Slightly stiffer and lighter than the Finesse,very well balanced,quick on the pick up,all male/female joints well re-enforced especially on the bigger sections, superb "slide through the hands" finish on the no.5 back (tri-cast in their wisdom number this as no.4)and STROOOOOONG.



This is my fishing rod, there are many like it, but this one is mine....

Been using mine now for the last few weeks, bought 2nd hand after someone used it 4 times. Also has extension to 17m. Won my first open with it hows that for a christening
In all honesty though I dont see what all the fuss is about with these "new better than ever tri-cast poles", my mate fishes with a reaction, about 7 or 8 years old he reckons. Same pole? Apart from the fact the tops don't fit etc.

Any Tri Cast pole is capable of using the strongest elastics - they are much much stronger than almost any other pole. Having handled the Finesse though I'd say it's a lot less stiff than a Daiwa G8 at 13m. I guess that's the price you pay.
