thanks mate is that for everything

There is an M50 for £550 on eBay, the box you are probably looking at £300?
Didn’t see the margin pole, id say you would be looking between £850 and £950 but often you get less than expected.
Also depends how many top kits with the poles.

Rather than pack up have you thought about taking up another aspect of the sport, such as specimen fishing, or even Carp'ing ?

Both can be equally as rewarding but less physically challenging

Good advice that Dave, he could possibly do a part exchange deal with some of the used tackle outlets.

I think there was a system that you could get that was on a pivot behind you and a rest in front thay meant you didn't have to hold the pole and you lifted i to a fish by lifting your knee... think I saw it on an Avanti website

You can also so get all the pole fittings that go on a chair, might be worth looking into.
