Grandson wants his own pole.

Recommended Posts

Hi. After a couple of years borrowing my stuff, my grandson (12) wants his own gear. I've fixed him up with most things, but I now need to get him a pole. Something around 11 mtrs, with a couple of top 2s / 3s. One for silvers, the other for commercial carp waters (Lindholme / Aston.) Any advice would be appreciated and if anyone knows of a good used one for sale please let me know. (private message may be best so nobody is accused of selling on here)

You may be better looking on a forum dedicated to angling if you're looking at used, I tried to sell on here with not much joy. Perhaps Talk Angling there's always a good few poles for sale on there. They have a section solely for pole sales.

Spend as much as you can and try and go as long as possible for your budget,he'll soon grow out of 11mtrs,if your on Facebook look for the kinky pellet club and match fishing banter,the lads on there will probably be able to help

Dont buy the lad a pole from Dragon carp as they are heavy and bend like a banana and he will be put off pole fishing for life thinking they are all heavy like that.

Sheff 13, thanks for the kind offer. I may be fixed up now, but will let you know if otherwise.

Help_needed, I wouldn't buy one of those. I'd rather buy a decent quality used one than a crap cheap new one.
