Hi Guys,

Anybody got any experience with the Zziplex 50/50 Match. I believe its 2 equal 7 ft sections. I was thinking about getting one but heard that they may be a bit `soft`. I currently use a 13 ft Zziplex which is quite stiff so wouldn` t really want one much softer. It would be getting used for Power Casting on the beach.
I don`t really want to pay all that money and regret it. Pity you can`t try before you buy! Not around my way anyway!

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks,
Rich

Hi mate,

Got 1 myself, best used for clean/mixed ground venues,e.g south coast. Thin 3mm tip,show bites well,typical match rod,pendulem casting will get the best out of it,not a bad rod ,but theres better ones out there.

Thanks mate,
If its not outstanding then I don`t really want to spend the money on it. I`m having good enough success using the Zzip which I have. Just caught a nice 30lb + Conger with it from my local beach at Tea time!
Check out my post on the South Wales Forum.
Thanks for your reply.
Tight lines,
Rich

Nice one mate,u look well pleased,send the pics into the magazines.By the way what Zzipy do u use?....
Hi there,
To be honest I have forgotten the make. It was a Tony`sackle Team Match rod though. Very strong and powerful with great bite detection. Chucks it out a mile.
Cheers,
Rich
