Ian,

I had a play with 1 at the NEC when they were first released and IMO it felt way out of balance and heavy (but i'm only just over 8 stone so every thing feels heavy)[;)]

I believe it was 1 of these that Churt smashed on my match last year at Drayton and he was not giving it much stick at the time.[:(]

Best bet is to get it set up at your tackle shop and have a play.

What's reckoned to be the best weight for a pole ?

Might sound like a daft question but there are a lot of cheap poles around which could be too heavy to hold for any period of time [:)]

Don't ask a simple question then Dave [:D][:D]

IMHO they only way to find if a Pole is to heavy is to set it up sit on a box and have a play with it....Shipping in/out, trying it at various lengths.

Don't think anyone can say that a specific pole is to heavy or light for anyone as alot will depend on the way it's held, how you sit, how tall you are, how heavy you are (or in my case how LIGHT)[;)]

Good example is my Maver Fightback to fish at full stretch (14mtr) for 5 hours it kills my back due to my lack of weight yet i know others that have the same pole and are a few stone heavier than me and they can fish it at full stretch without any problems.

But saying that in the past i've played with heavy poles that due to the balance i could handle without any problem.

Don't think i've really answered the question but i know what i mean [;)][;)]

If you can stretch to 699.00 I would recommend the Medusa. A good 16 meter pole for the price, at 16 mtrs it is comfortable for up to 3 hours, but at 13 and at shorter lengths it is a dream of an all round pole. Spares are relitively cheap as well.

Ian as you've posted in a different thread that your going to the NEC i'd suggest you have a couple of hours in Pole Alley and have a good waggle with as many poles that you can in your price range.

I know Maver as well as others will have their new models on show and there should be a lot options from other manufacturers all within your price range.
