can anyone tell me what sorty of rating this rod will have.
its brand new, never been out the bag, its 8m long, has eyes and a reel seat.
its as you would think in mint condition.
what can i use it for?
i would think its something to do with river fishing maybe?
sorry forgot to take the serial number and left it in my storage unit till monday morning.
anyone used one?
bargain at 25.00 plus a shimano 4000 super x reel 10.00 same fella.

Hi pal your right about the river thing . they are designed for fishing on deep rivers with a stick float or avon style float as it will give you far better line control . If you can get hold of a back copy of match fishing magazine Alan Scotthorne did a article about fishing the bolo

You could use it on stillwaters like a 8m pole with the added bonus of a reel, light rigs tight up to snags or pockets in weed, at that price i`d buy it just to have a play.
