My local tackle shop has this pole on offer of 599 ,I ve had a look round and it is that price in all the mags ,My qestion is has anyone used or have one and what do you think of it.
ALL THE BEST
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.
