Hi people,

 

Looking for some advice on which pole to buy. I've not fished for about 4 years and the last pole I had was a Shimano Nexave AX 12.5??, in my memory this was a decent pole but I imagine the tech has come along way since.

 

Anyway, my budget is £150-200 and it will be mainly used for canal fishing but with the occasional commercial outing so I need the choice to be able to go heavier if needs be. Basically an all-rounder type.

 

The only thing I've seen so far is the Diawa XR1 which goes for around £170ish.

 

Are there any other poles around that price worth looking at?

I've been checking Ebay / gumtree for the last month but I'm not too keen on buying an old pole in case it breaks and I cant replace parts etc

 

Thanks in advance
