Have been offered 1 of these in as good as new condition,but i have no first hand knoledge of them.

Is it suitable for carp commercials?
Are spares still available?
What is it worth?

Many thanks.

Excellent pole easily fishable at 16m.
Will handle carp with care upto Black Hydro.
Spares are still available but mega expensive 11m section is around the 400 mark.
If its in good nick with a few tops its worth around 500.

Thanks for info Endpeg,i have just found out that it is in mint condition no wear at all and as the original package which i think is 2xtop4,2xtop3,2xpower kit,2 short 4's cup kit and holdall.But i get the feeling more than 500 is wanted though.

i sold a mint g995 4 years ago with 12 topkits 4 spare long 4s and 2 short 4s for 650 so i would say that 550 would be the most i would pay for that package

I have a second hand one - its brilliant. Dont forget when it first come out it was a flag ship pole - so you are a getting a 2 grand pole for a quarter of the price

since i owned the 995 i have had a g10 a sensas 774 and now own a gmax 1000 and the g995 is probably the pole that i enjoyed fishing with the most if i could find another in mint condition i would sell the gmax 1000 they really are a brilliant pole

Hi, yeah saw that 995 on E-bay and would have got it myself. I had a Super Legion , best pole Ive ever had and should of got a 995 but went and bought a Daiwa instead Doh!. Had about 5 poles since and not one touches the Garbo.
So if you dont want the 995 let me know and i will have it [:T]
