I had the 2.25lb in both 9 and 10 foot. The 9ft was the better of the 2 but still ended up on that god awful selling site. I've owned an Aventa and a Sheffield.
Also what's the pin shown in the pic?
Yes I bought them during lockdown but quickly realised they weren't for me. Probably OK as a single rod set up but when carting 2 made up rods around PITA. Just a quickie, if you don't mind how long is the handle length from butt to front of 1" cork above reel? 25"??I'm not well up on cary type rods at all, but from what i've seen this latest 2020 version is the best so far....were your ones this years model?
