Yea, thought my no 3's felt soft, but had carp to 10lb on them & no problems yet !, if your in any doubt use the short 3's with long topkits & the long ones with the F1ST's, that's actually how there designed according to the Tricast video.

Soft No 3s surely that can’t be right on a top end pole. ?
Yes most poles I've had even garbolino uk1 have had soft 3s or 4s. I think the 3 on tri cast is a 4 on most other poles .
