Ballon catcher
Used for 3 to 6 months
Ok, weird use but we needed to find something to get balloons down form a high ceiling. Stuck a cork on the end with a few bits of wire sticking out and it works a treat and is light enough to wave around!
Not a good rod/pole
Used for 1 week or less
Just not good or easy to use. A telescopic pole of this length is not practical, especially if you are a novice like me. Complete waste of time and money. Only used it for one cast then set to one side. Never to be used again.
Response of the brand
Hi William,

Thanks for your message. Please could you elaborate a little in terms of the difficulties so I can try to help you? What length of pole did you purchase? Normally you don't cast in a classical way with the pole, but more of pendulum motion or a flick. We usually recommend whips (like this pole) above all other products to beginners as it should usually be very simple to use. I have attached a Youtube clip that explains the ins and outs.
Sorry for the inconvenience,

This is NOT an elasticated whip
Used for 1 week or less
This whip is not eleasticated..... hook anything too big and you’ll be replacing the line/rig asap.
