  • Greys GR70 Spin and Mitchell Mag Pro RTZ
    10 August 2017


    Greys GR70 Spin    I was given the opportunity to have a “play” with this spinning rod new from Greys for 2017.         There are five new rods in this range and I opted for the 9’ version with a casting weight of 15-35g with Shad and Seatrout in mind. It is finished to the highest standards as you would expect from Greys, feels light and well balanced with a comfortable and shaped cork handle. Comes in a protective travel tube.   The...

    Abu Rocket Spinning Rod
    Abu Rocket Spinning Rod At the beginning of the season, Pure Fishing agent David Wilson handed me an Abu spinning rod (Rocket Bass Spin 25-85g) to see what I thought. At 9’3” this is a quality made rod, extremely light, an amazingly slim diameter blank yet deceptively powerful. It also has a fair bit of back-bone in reserve.       Built with 24-ton carbon, EVA handle, Stainless Steel guides and ceramic inserts and a Sea Guide reel seat, you get a lot of rod for y...

    Shakespeare Agility EXP 12ft Specimen Rod
    Shakespeare Agility EXP 12ft Specimen Rod Over this season of 2015, I have had the pleasure of reviewing many rods from Shakespeare’s new Agility range, and found without exception, high quality at budget price.       This new 12ft Specimen Rod from the Agility stable comes in two test curve variations, 2lb and the slightly “beefier” 2.5lb T/C. I recently had the pleasure of playing with the 2lb T/C version, and for a 4-piece rod under £60, found it to...

    Shakespeare Agility Med-Heavy 8ft Spin
    Shakespeare Agility Med-Heavy 8’ Spin   Taking this year’s new Agility Spinning Rod from Shakespeare out for a test!       Throughout this year, I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to product test many rods from the Agility range. Yes, they are a budget range, but so far, every rod I have played with has proven beyond doubt to exceed its low price tag by far. Shakespeare have found a formula in the 2015 Agility range that produces high quality t...

    Tackle Test, Greys Prodigy TXL 13ft Specialist Float Rod
    Tackle Test, Greys Prodigy TXL 13’ Specialist Float Rod On a recent and reasonably successful Mullet hunt down in West Cork, there was one incident that threatened to spoil our adventure. On our way from one fished-out hot spot to the next, we had a bungee failure on the roof rack!       A gust of wind lifted our pre-assembled rods and rattled them down the road amongst busy traffic. My beloved Greys Prodigy VX float rod, Abu Cardinal Reel and Andrew’s Amorphous W...

    The Greys Prodigy VX Specialist Float Rod
    The Greys Prodigy VX Specialist Float Rod The catalogue bumph! “A brilliant all-round float rod, with just a hint of extra casting and striking power. Forgiving tip allows for a degree of finesse, and helps to avoid hook pulls as bigger fish are played in towards the landing net. The 15ft option provides extra casting and striking backbone”.   Product review While helping out on the Pure Fishing stand at the Dublin Angling Show this year, I had the opportunity to peruse the...
