the main thing for me is stiffness and balance i know by the specs its light @13m 800g so if i could get one for 500 with 8 top kits but a cracked number 5 what would you say ? expecially with the number 5's bein 235

Theey're an excellent pole and in My opinion better than the Gis10 Absolute,

I've still got Mine and keep it as a back up pole alongside My Gis12,

It's still as good as the day I bought it and gets used occasionally,

It's a good, strong, well balanced pole that will handle lumps easily but is at home with those canal silvers.

sounds like a good pole to me then because i love skimmer fishing but then i fish matchs aswel so if its up for bagging carp thats even better.. is there much wobble in the pole when shipping in-out and is it stiff at 14.5m ?

I love mine. Light, stiff and powerful. . Well balanced. I bought it second hand on ebay last year for 370 with 7 tops. I made an adaptor and now I can use all my Daiwa Strongbeam tops on it as well. (Making 18 top kits in all. Do you think that will be enough ?) My mate paid 700 for his GIS9. He loves his just as much. Although it would probably handle lumps in the margins, I don't really want to try it. That's why they make dedicated margin poles. The only other pole I would consider would be a Spectron if I needed something really light.

with a short No4 (longer than most short No4's)- the pole is still as rigid as most current top end poles IMO
