I'm looking to buy an all-round pole for about 300. I've seen the Middy 004/99 advertised for 299, is it any good. I'm also looking at the Daiwa Phantom X and the Lerc 4040. Any others in this price range worth looking at. Any advice greatly appreciated

Thanks

Steve

First off,Welcome to the forum Stevei.

Now to your question,
What sort of fishing will you be doing with the pole [?]
Carp crunching [?]
Silver fish work [?]
or a bit of both [?]
There are quite a few poles now in your price range.The thing to look for is value for money,Extensions ,top kits and elastication packs....Take a good look at just what you are offered for your hard earned .
How much are spare top kits [?]
Is the spares availability good [?]
Most importantly go and find a dealer that will let you set the pole up and sit on a box so that you can get some idea of the feel and balance...............What feels right for one person can feel completely wrong for another,don't leap in and get the first pole you come across,take your time and compare as many as you can.

Personally ,i would probably go for the LERC,having had 3 lerc poles in the past,and been more than happy with them.
