Fishing poles are an important part of the fishing enthusiast's kit. As a general rule, the longer the pole, the further out you can fish, enabling you to trawl deeper water. Poles are especially popular for carp fishing and can be customised with reels and lines of your choice.
There are two types of fishing pole. The first type comes apart and is reconstructed for use, piece by piece. The second type is telescopic and can be unfurled to longer lengths, whilst being small enough to pack away. Fishing poles can be as short as 4 metres or as long as 14.5 metres, although some can be longer. Poles are usually made of carbon and are always weatherproof.
Garbolino Match Classic Pro 600
The Match Classic pro has a carbon shaft that gives firm balance when fully extended. It is ideal for deep water and for carp. The pole has an elastic rating of 1.4mm.
The Garbolino Extra Power Margin Carp Pole comes with integral power puller and is pre-fitted with size 12 elastic. The Garbolino Carp Pro 800 is designed to cope with heavy loads and is used as a margin pole. It is compatible with other UK and GMax fishing poles.
The Maver 13 metre pole is made of hi tensile carbon. It has robust Teflon joints and fusion technology and each number one section is also pre-fitted with internal bushes. The Definition range fishing poles all have power kits which are pre-slotted and which showcase the Maver's high standard of Italian fishing technology.
If you're looking for longer pole length, then the Daiwa Matchwinner 3 extends up to 14.5 metres giving a long reach that increases your chances of a catch when carp fishing. The long line is constructed of weatherproof and rust proof carbon as well as Multi Strand Graphite (MSG) and allows balance along its length, even with a heavy catch. The length of the Daiwa Matchwinner makes it ideal for open water. Its versatility allows it to handle a big catch whilst being sensitive enough for a smaller mixed catch. Many fishing enthusiasts like this one as an all-rounder and appreciate its long length. The recommended elastic is 16.
Frenzee match pro FXT
The Match Pro from the Frenzee range comes in two sizes. It is available in a 7.5 metre length or a 9-metre length and is designed to help increase the potential of your margin reach.
