  • The JRC Extreme TX Rod Pod
    18 January 2020


    Terry’s Travels   The JRC Extreme TX Rod Pod           "Probably the most versatile pod in Carp angling, the Extreme TX Pod can be used in any fishing conditions. Adjustable in length, height and various leg angles, The Extreme TX Pod adapts to any surface. As the Pod comes with a set of extra long front legs, you can transform it from a classical all-round pod into a high pod for extreme distance fishing. Available in both 3 and 4-rod versions." &n...

    Greys Toreon Flattie Rod, Penn Spin Fisher 7500
    Terry’s Travels Greys GR75s Toreon Flattie Rod   I'm stunned. Finally found the opportunity to have a bit of fun with these delightful wee rods, to be told that they're out of production for 2020!       I have been lucky to use a few of the specialist Greys rods from the Toreon range, and can find no fault in any of them. Recently, I took to the shoreline with a pair of Toreon "Flattie" rods. These are 10'9" two piece, suited to casting 1-3oz of lead. As you woul...

    Shakespeare Agility 2 XPS 9' 10#
    Shakespeare Agility 2 XPS 9' 10#   Trying out the Agility 2 XPS for some hard-hitting Irish Pike on the fly.         There are few anglers that need an excuse to go fishing, but still, it's nice to have one. And what better excuse than to play with a new rod, and try to find a fish or two to put a bend in it!   Chasing Pike, on the fly, at sunrise.You can't beat it! Over the past number of years, with continued sponsorship from Shakespeare, I have been luc...

    Greys GR70 Spin and Mitchell Mag Pro RTZ
    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...
