It’s not the same pole as you have but I happily used an old Garbolino Spyder 11m pole for years. Bought in 1993, used for four years then put into storage for 14 years then used again for five years until I snapped the top section pulling for a break after a very big carp dragged me through the reeds. Even in its old state it successfully managed to handle doubles. It was probably quite heavy compared to today’s technology, but it was manageable at 11m and very durable. If yours is anything like that then I’d say go for it.
