Hi guys on Saturday I went to the anglers workshop and had a cast about with the little snipers. Personally after seeing kev flick a lead out to 150yrds with easy im completley sold. Have any of you guys got these rods and what are your opinions? Cheers.

Wow 1.5tc before I went to kevs I would have laughed but after seeing him cast the 2.25tc rods. Bet they fish well.

Got a set of 2.25lb test curve. Can't fault them. Can do 100yds even with my poor casting, my lad can cast much further with his. Good margin / mid range rod, great for playing fish. Highly recommended

I have one of his spod rods for the last 9 years they are very light & very user friendly & will put a spom/ spod a long way.

Price depends on what spec you go for, like what real seat, what grip ad so on. I'm not 100% but between 150 and 250 I would say.
I had mine done with cork handles

Heard a lot about these rods.
