Just tried out the new Rhino rod fro Zebco and can honestly say it's a pretty tough rod, it was to replace a Browning rod that kept snapping on the top section. I took the Browning rod back to my tackle shop for the 4th time and they replaced it with the Rhino,Free of Charge! I used it in our match and the rod performed brilliantly. The rod has a guarantee that if it's broken while fishing it will be replaced free for life! The action is all through and performs well while playing big or small fish. It's a bit heavier than my old Browning but this is a minor detail on a well designed rod. I must say a thank you to Browning for the replacement and am delighted with their service and the new replacement. ( I've always been lucky)

First of all Mark 10 out of 10 for the tackle shop,thats good service.

The zebco rhino rod, i've been reading about it in the angling press, must say it sounds a good rod, and a lifetime guarantee not often we come across that.
How did you get on in the match??????


i'm going to bait up

I'll let you know if its any good for barbel if I ever snare one this season!
Handled those Lough Ramor hybrids ok though - and they pull a bit - and i've had a three and a half pound chub from the Swale on it.

Mine came with three tips (2,3 & 4oz test curves) but I think it varies depending on which model you get.

As for price, I paid 90 for mine at the NEC show but I've seen them advertised mail-order for 60-70.

I'm thinking of using it for a bit of pike fishing at the weekend - just to see how much it bends

Andy, I won the match even having lost 13 Carp!
My rod was a free replacement and is the 13ft match rod which retails at 80-00, When I was in the shop I tested one with the assistant holding the end of the rod and me giving it all I'd got on the butt, he defied me to try and snap it. I gave it 14stones and could not break it, which really impressed me so I brought it home with me.

Nice one Mark, next time you go into the shop tell them that you won the match with your replacement rod they just might give you a freebie for luck
