Hey guys,

First post here.

Im slowly getting back into angling since covid has stopped me playing any hockey :(

Ive always liked to use rod and real, but we did a day ticket on a local water, took my 8yr old boy and the club loaned him an elasticated whip, what a great tool. Well that got me thinking...i bought a very cheap £30 garbolino 4m and tried it this week, and i do like it.

From reading. A margin pole will be most forgiving, i dont fish far always been an off the reeds kinda guys

Budget is 200 ish,

Ive seen the
Preston response
Preston edge
Sensas 1005
Diawa
Shimano

But some recommend the middy muscle tech 6m with add on sections, and this sounds like a beast

I live in the north west so couple visits to partridge, and then the local water with smaller carp

Whats a good go to?

Cheers jake

I can vouch for tri cast margin poles absolutely brilliant ,you would have to look at second hand ones . If you can find one in good condition you will be able to land virtually anything with the right elastic and line . You can add topkits as most come with 2 or 3 . They are light and strong and pretty straight and using one for years im just blown away how good they are. Another choice would be a browning xitan another brilliant margin pole but again you would have look for a second hand one ,both poles are around 9m standard but you can buy extensions.

Ive read the tricast is amazing. Im very wary of buying used with a pole for some reason,

Ive also seen the middy muscle 600 recommend, but most of these we have mentioned are out of stock everywhere

The tri cast are amazing ,i dont know about the others as i havent used them . If you do buy second hand you would need to check every section .

The browning xitan is in stock at bobco tackle but its £350 quite a bit over budget but is very good

Tri-cast margin poles are absolutely brilliant and in my opinion are probably the best you can buy but this quality does not come cheap so by the time you buy elastic, bungs bushes etc a good package with extention and a few top kits will probably be £600+ unless of course you go down the secondhand route (that XRS for £171 looks very good value) but you need to be careful when buying secondhand make sure you inspect every section very carefully for repairs, cracks and damage and put all of the joints together to confirm the fit properly with no rattles etc and if buying online make sure that the seller has a returns option. If you do not want the trouble of a second hand item then the Preston edge monster looks good at less than £200, a guy uses one at our club water and it does look a good bit of kit, I personally have an XRS and a Daiwa Yank n Bank while the Daiwa can not compete with the Tri-cast it is still a very nice pole and is good value for money, mine is now probably about 8-10 years old so not sure what the new ones are like.

Go to Leigh Tackle and Bait, they will sort you out, tell them what you are looking for and possible budget.
Have a look at the new Daiwa power carp as well, I think it starts at 9 metres upto 13cmetres

Is that the Westlake box? If so they seem a decent box for the price.
