    They are a bit like women you have to go through a few until you find the one you like. I was always century but began to buy zziplex last year. am onto my 4th zippy now.

    I think the rods are excellent, it takes a while to find a rod that suits you, also some people sell simply because they need the money due to their financial situation, its hard to get money these days!!!!!!!!

    i only brought one because it was going for a bargin, anyone who uses them will swear by them...i mean who wants to pay 400 quid + and say yer my rods rubbish! i think thats half the reason why so many sell to be honest. find alot of people just buy them for the name and the bragging rights. just my opinion of course.

    Wouldn't pay 400 for one though when u can get one for under 300 second hand in new condition but that's just because I like a bargain

    It's what's on the last couple of feet that matters yes a rod can give u distance to get to the fish and better bite detection but a rod is only as useful as its owner.

    I'm guilty of being a tackle tart but its what I enjoy and love spending money on my, all the gear and no idea

    As Ken said it can take a while to find the right one for you as ive been informed. But it's a hell of a lot of money to spend on the wrong rod only then to buy another wrong rod.
    Make sure you have a good job, not married or a nice bank manager before you take the long road of enlightened discovery of Mr T Carroll's emporium
