Just seen an offer with Bennetts for this 16M pole with free seat box at 499 seems a good deal. Anyone used this pole & what is it like to hold at different lengths? I currently own a Daiwa Black Shadow at present are the match & power kits likely to be interchangeable between these poles?

Ive had one for a couple of months now, gets heavy and sloppy past 14.5m but to be honest, for the money its excellent. Can handle 20+ elastics (and yes i have tried it) and is a real good carp pole.

Thanks for this. What sort size carp have you landed with it & is good for silvers as well?

I have had them up to low doubles on it with no sign of a creak or moan, even with maver 20+ dual core. Ive used it for roach fishing similarly with 5-8 dual core and its ok, there are stiffer poles for sure as i said, its action lends itself more to carping though if you ask me. Ive used it with the carp kits and have two match kits with the top section taken out both with 20+ in. Hope this helps.....
