    Re: Rod repairs

    Fair enough, I misinterpreted that, I was getting the impression you was trying it on with them by trying to say the rod was faulty and not caused by you.

    By your own admission you have been a little heavy handed with the rod and you seem to accept that you are at fault for the breakage, it is therefore a little unfair to be disappointed with either...

    Sounds good mate but I have found a mix that works really well for me on still waters for the bream, I do use about 50% liquidised boilies (specific ones) in my method mix and then use the same...

    Fosters of Birmingham would be worth a call as they stock a lot of Garbolino stuff and they could probably tell you if it would be available to order in.

    No, I was testing with 10lb Pro Clear, mainly because I use mono rather than braid and sadly I wasn't doing any direct comparisons, which actually makes me curious now.

    Re: Spooling reels

    By far the best way I have found to load line onto my reels is the way Dave Ellyat does it with the spool submerged in water AND standing up straight.

    Re: Korum xpert

    You would not get 115 meters with the Drennan.

    On my 2lb's I could hit just past 90 yards with a straight lead and this was smashing it out to my max.

    I know Martin Bowler gets 80 yards with...

    If it has to be a Korum Xpert rod I would suggest the 2.2lb version for chucking big feeders the 100 yards you mentioned.

    Liquidised vitalin is fantastic for carp, especially if mixed with some tuna and salt, really seems to pull carp in like a magnet.
