Sounds like a great looking rod! Too bad photobucket is playing games, I'd like to see this one.

Hmmm....Going to find some other program to upload photo's. Photobucket isn't what it used to be...

Just switched to Imgur. Hopefully this will work.

Hi John R
Have you cast/fished it and if so please let us know what you think of its action and fishability.
Thanks
Michael

Hello Michael,

I have used the rod last summer a lot on small trout rivers in Germany and also on some local waters here for roach and perch.
It has a medium/fast action and a lot of backbone in it. Will probably use it also this winter for winter roach in local harbours which can grow upto 45cm and 2/3 pound.

Used to fish with a CTS MX 8'#0 however this rod replaced it as a new favorit.
