Anyone with experience of these rods?

Looking for a potentially cheap river waggler rod and slider rod. Would save me a bit over a 14' Garbolino Slider rod as these are going for £59.95. Not sure if it would be up to slider fishing though and not sure if it's a decent rod for the river. Another option I've considered is a 14' Acolyte Plus as I could potentially cover both bases with that.
For £60 ,id take a chance , get it and enjoy ,or give it to father 👨 😍

Both for Chef the bagger😍
No that was last Wednesday,it only opened back up on the Tuesday, I fished this Monday, it’s a very deep reservoir and the fish don’t really wake up there until the water warms up ... it’s heavily carp fished by the boilie/ spod/zig brigade

I cant stand fishing where carpers fish , way to much bait goes in but thats their way ,bait up and wait for the monsters . Not knocking their style but i dont like fishing where they are .

I’ve been toying with buying free spirit hi S rods, but I wouldn’t think that qualified me to give advice on every distance feeder rod on the market 🤷‍♂️
Massive (y) for the free spirits ,overlooked on every ones wish list as not all shops stock them but they are in a different league ,you've probably seen them at clattercote already mate

Watched a good few videos on them ,they look superb ,if i was needing a long chuck rod id definitely be buying one or 2

Thing is I’d only use them occasionally in the winter for long range feeder
Thats why i havent already gone for them ,the venues i fish dont need long chucks , like to fish Barston if i ever get a chance
