After reading all the hype that tends to be attached to the release of new products, how they have bettered last years models etc etc, i got my hands on the 16m Trilogy and had a good look at it. I currently own a Finesse, not the stiffest or lightest on the market, but a good strong all rounder. The two poles are worlds appart. The Trilogy is a lot stiffer and lighter than the current range that Tri Cast have, and i believe they have definately moved up a gear in making a pole that competes with the other flagship poles on the market. A great spares package too of 9 top kits! So nice is the pole thats it, my Trilogy is ordered and the Finesse is up for sale. Can't wait to get it on the bank.
