For those of you that have seen me asking for suggestions re these on other boards, apologies !

I know the name of my pain and that name is a decent, dependable, extendable landing net handle.

It needs to extend to over 11-12 feet and be able to deal with reasonable sized carp amd barbel.

High old banks on some of the rivers I fish.

Please do not mention Conoflex as I am still twitching after the self destruction of mine !

Cheers
Andy

Hi Andy

I've got a good one its in 3 pieces with red plastic locking bits but i'll be damned if i can remember who makes it???

I'll see if its got the makers name on it & let you know mate.

The only thing is it gets a bit heavy cos its made of steel/aluminium but its as strong as anyother (it lifted my 25lber out with ease).

Andy,

A friend of mine swears by his Shakespeare Odessa landing net handle
Its 3 metres long, telescopic and carbon and its claimed that it can handle the largest of carp but he hasn't caught one yet to be able to say if it lives up to it.

It's nice to see so many new faces in the forums.

The Oddessa sounds interesting. I have had a look at the Oddessa A/Q and for the price it is a grat bit of kit.

Only concern I have is that I have never really got on with non lockable telescopics but I'll have a look.

Try and find the name of yours Al !



Cheers
Andy

Andy,
Just noticed, Bennetts are doing a deal on a 4 piece put over 14 ft handle for 12.99!
The 16" spoon that comes with it not so great, but the handle sounds ideal!

Cheers
