hello everyone,
firstly nice to be back here after a few months off the internet. Now the inevitable question (i always have one)..... after serving a coarse fishing apprenticeship with a float I would now like to graduate to fishing without one, but can anyone please inform me as to the differences between rods that have push in quivertips and those that are spliced in, I understand the concept but what are the advantages and disadvantages, why use a spliced in tip or why use tips that are pushed in? I fish stillwaters only for small/medium fish.
thank you
Rob

In a word 'versatility' you can change the weight loading of the tip to suit conditions. ie strong gusty winds use a heavier tip. Another point to consider is if you break a spliced in tip its costly or time consuming to repair. Some rods with push fit tips also come with a swing tip adapter so again more versatile. Hope this helps.

chill out go fishing
