Haven't heard any complaints about rubbish rings or anyone who's managed to snap 3 of them yet...
















Just give it time though..:yawn:

Got the XTR 4-6 oz, Yes I have smased two rings, top and 5th, BUT it did bounce off the stand and fall on the shingle.. HOWEVER. I rang Sonik from the beach and arranged for a new section under their warrenty (paid £35.00) and got a new section next day... Sounds an exspensive way to do it, but I now have a spare section after they also supplied the two rings FOC as well.. Good service in my book..

I think they are OK. The bite detection is pretty good. I am not the worlds best caster, but use a 6500 with it and it seems a good match getting reasonable distance. Fairly light to use with a (for me) long and flexible butt section for playing reel down. I must say the sliding reel seat is sometimes a bit wobbly as it moves around the butt, but if packed out or taped would be fine. Personally i think it was a good buy for £130. I know there are centurys and conoflex rods on ebay and this site for around the same price second hand, but for a good starter rod for someone who is just starting out great... so far..

I agree mate, bite detection is top! Reel seats are always abit all over the place, same of my afaw rod tbh and that cost 200, think the xtr is a great rod, sonik may have just sorted them selves out lol
