Ok ive just spent a morning up the canal trying out my new technium, impressed with the pole although didnt go much past 8/9ish metres,

The only problem i had was with the kuppin kit well not really a problem just more hassle than its worth pickin it up off the ground so i though id get a roost

Whick ones are the best to get? i was looking at the octoplus one which looks handy but the preston tripod one looks good too, or is it worth gettin one with a bankstick?

Any more recommendations?

Thanks
Chris


EDIT: Is it me or does this seem a really good deal?? cheapest ive found them id 26 from fosters >> http://www.aquamania.co.uk/product.asp?P_ID=620&numLanguageID=1

I have the Octoplus one and also the Technium. Firstly the top kits are too thick for the Octoplus roost unles you buy an extending arm for it, so the end of the roost is more towards the thin end of your top kits. It then becomes very flopy and is not worth using.

Just remember you can't use bank sticks on a concrete or stone edged tow path![}:)][}:)]

Same here, nice cheap easy solution, plus I use the quick releases to make settig up and taking down easier. They are a good investment dirt in sections then ground into other sections, or worse stood on top kits, no happy no smiley.

It is amazing how much easier it makes the fishing as well. The pole sections are arranged neatly and in easy reaching distance, which makes them a lot easier to pick up/put down, when playing a fish.

As you say they also keep the pole in a lot better condition away from dirt, grit, feet etc.. In my opinion they (along with other roosts) are one of the best investments you can make.

If you need a roost that's usable where you can't get banksticks in, Fishing Republic do quite a good telescopic one with two tiltable roost tops and a telescopic arm that fits on to the seatbox leg.
I think it's about 20[8D]

I use a couple of Milo roosters ( about 8 sections in the foam ) attached to bank sticks. never had that much trouble with hard banks etc. If its not possible to push the banks sticks into the ground you just have to get round it and theres always a way.[;)]

Cheers.

Milo rocket launcher, not the cheapest but the best by miles. Attaches to your box doesn't require an even/flat bank and you don't need to stick anything in the ground.
Also holds the kits very securely, never had any blown out even in the worst gales

is the boss one really that good then considering price and all that.
i reckon to lay mine on to my holdall directly behind me if no ones going to be walking at the back of me.and on my right when on a towpath,but still on the ground.
might invest in one if there that good.
