I recently purchased a new pole, A Daiwa Matchwinner C5. I'll be honest, I'm not really happy with it. Anything past 13m just feels clunky and awkward to fish with, 16M is just heavy and I don't think I'd want to fish it at that length for a long amount of time. Fortunately, I brought it at a good enough price where I'll be able to get my money back.

Bobco have recently listed the Middy Xl20-3 16M Pole pack for £799.99, This is one of the poles I'd initially had my eye on along with the Maver Oculus 799 / 999 Poles, However, in the end I decided to go for the Daiwa (Due to the price I got it for).

Would like something which is nice and light, Something that can be used all round (Lots of silver / bream fishing) but can also take carp upwards of 15lbs.
