Ordered a shimano hyperloop telescopic carp rod recently as it was recommended by the dealer. I sent it straight back.It was a truly awful rod. I have seen better tele rods at 10 than this rubbish , and they want three times that ! It had the diameter of a bean tin. The graphics on the "blank" were garish and naff and the action...it felt like the joints were sellotaped together. I was stunned that shimano could come out with gear like that . Shocking.
