Your correct, the airity is a crisper rod, better for casting, and for larger fish, more middle to tip action, the tournament is slightly softer, ideal for bream and silvers, decent carp rod too, but not an out n out bagging tool👍👍👍

This is a cheaper rod and not UK made. Have a look at the Free Spirit 11ft CTX power feeder. Loads of back bone. Thought it was worth a mention. The Hi's versions are soft like the Tournament.

Is this a Shimano Blank (free spirit ctx)?

I posted on another thread about one of these rods and the rod bag it was in had shimano zips on the rod bag.

I understand that 2+2 doesnt always equal 4 as RMDIL pointed out on that thread, howver it does make you wonder if they do use shimano blanks or was it the case as RMDIL aluded to, that maybe the rod bag supplier for these Freespirit rods could have used zips destined for shimano rod bags. Again - it could purely be just that but the zippers were actually the same colourway as the bag design that I had a hold of which does make you question the fact. Well I did as did my mate.

:unsure:
