  • Pole advice sought

    At the moment I have a MAP TKS Power Carp 2 13m which is great for fishing short and down the edge. Anything over 11.5m I find it top heavy and uncomfortable.
    Most of the time I manage fine but occasionally I find that the lack of pole length leaves me at a disadvantage.
    I am thinking of getting a second hand MAP pole (so that my top kits fit) at longer length. Either a 14.5m or 16m
    Although I don't really expect to require the full 16m length often (if at all), would using the 16m pole at 14.5m be more comfortable than the 14.5m at full length?
    I regularly fish commercials and expect to get some silverfish as well as carp to mid double figure.
    My budget is up to £500, hopefully less..and any practical advice will be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    Its generally accepted that the shorter you fish a pole the better the handling is, so at 13 mtr a 16 mtr pole will be more manageble than your 13 mtr Power Carp. It makes sense to look at a a MAP pole for top kit compatability. Some Sensas and Daiwa poles are compatable with a range of MAP poles. Sure Big Col can give a good list of them. £500 second hand should get you a reasonable pole with a good few top kits.

      A spray bar would be very helpful too
