Stick with the 40 mate. 525 is no better. There won't be anything for that price any better either, the 40 was a price point breaker!!!. You need to spend a grand + to get something I would personally consider fishable at 14.5m. As always with poles tho buddy, horses for courses.
i have the g20,its comes into its own after 10m! its very stiff & responsive at 14.5,i have fished it at 16 with ease,i carnt fault it.a real pleasure to use,if you can stretch to a g20 you wont be disapointed.
im a fan of the maver range, and if your looking for a competition pole then the 401 or 471 are very good poles, or if your after more of a lumping pole go with the new jurrassic range or the invincible.
