Well after trying pole fishing for the first time on Wednesday (thanks again Martin [:)]) I've decided to look into getting one of my own.

One of my local tackle shops is offering this deal:


11m Middy The Works pole
1/2 m Extension
Pole Holdall
2 x Top 3s
2 x Elastication Kits

119.00


Has anybody used this pole, and if so what do you think?

Any views on the price they are offering?


Thanks in advance.

I should have mentioned, spare Top 3s are 30 and a cupping kit is about the same.

I'll get in there and try it before I buy, I just wondered if anybody else had used this pole, or had any views.


Thanks for the reminders.

There is a review on poles under 300 pound in the Mar/Apr issue of Advanced pole fishing and the middy the works pole is included.
