  1. Default Shimano trchnium 1250 competition pole

    Hi

    I bought a Shimano technium 1250 pole around 17 years ago. Think it was the first ever model. Not used it for a long time, but wanting to start using it for river fishing. I'm after spare 3's, 4's and 5's so I can use longer rigs. I went to look at one being sold on Facebook, which looked like mine with the blue, yellow and silver design, but the sections wouldn't fit. Does anyone know if the original technium was produced on the same mandrel as any other poles so I can find sections to fit

    Thanks

    Steve

    As far as i am aware, Shimano used different tapers and section diameters than other brands, For example Sensas, preston, Middy and MAP topkits can more or less be interchanged depending on model, Your best best would be to try universal topkits, and keep pole rig on winder tucked in the bottom of number 3 when not in use, for depths suited to top 4 or 5, then when needed just remove winder. Its a cheaper way than having loads of spare number 4or 5 sections.
