A mate of mine who can no longer fish the rough marks due to mobolity problems has sold me one of these for £70 quid.

It needs a bit of work on it but appears pretty stiff, wonder if anyone thinks they are good rods,he says they are not made anymore.

Dont know anyone who owns one to be honest but it should be a good rod,you can pick them up from Mainwarings in Swansea and Anglers Corner LLanelli and Ewenny you had a bargin at £70 i'd personally get it rebuilt which would cost about £50 and it would be as good as new.
They retail for about £260 - £295.

i have the conoflex tournament extreme, 13 foot, very stiff, heavy too, ideal for rough ground, i have had it rebuilt at 46 quid in reg aspinalls in barry, it is apparently the first ever rod to cast 300 yds, "nope" it wasnt me, some other person i,m afraid, thats what i call a distance? i know it is not the samerod as yours, but i think if you do have it rebuilt, you will be pretty pleased, and it will be worth a few bob too. good luck with it thow?

You lucky barsteward :mad: , i have been threatning to get one of these for months now and same as what was said previously something always intervenes, any how i just bought a PENN INSX to console myself with, and i go on with the hope that lady luck will shine on me one day. :D
