To be honest if it's 13m max you need then you won't need to spend anything like your budget to get a very good pole. Spend half, spend £1K and then get all the spares you'll ever need

I can remember when calcotts was open and you had to go round the back into the car park to try a pole out.

One used to carry the box for you to sit on and you carried the pole.:)
Ernest Calcott. That’s some years ago pal. Brilliant little shop. Stuffed to the rafters with fishing tackle. He always knocked you a few pennies off didn’t he ? Me and my dad used to pick what we wanted from Bennett’s walk around the corner and buy it from Calcotts because he was cheaper. ??. The good old days. ?
