Review of "Shimano Aero Match Pole 12.5 metre"
The 12.5 metre Shimano Aero Match Pole.This pole has been out for quite a while now, and it was rolled on the famed 12.5 metre ex mandrel.
This pole is a good all rounder, that has a good spares package. Mine came with three spare top three's, and a match top three with the pole. Giving you four top three's in total. of which two were power tops and two were match tops.The two match tops have a elastic rating of 1-8
The power tops have a elastic rating of 8-16, of which I only use the 10-12 through all three sections.
As with all midd price range poles, they are heavy at full length, and slightly floppy. This pole is no different, but I have found that I can still use it with ease at full length.If you take one section off and use it at eleven metres, I find it a dream pole which is light, stiff and extremely responsive. I have had Carp to 14lb using the power top sections, and using 12's elastic through the top three sections.
I have put together bags of 20lb of silver fish using the match top three's, with 5's elastic through two sections. On fine lines and fine hooks.With Most anglers using the pole within ranges off five to eleven metres, I find this pole to be an excellent buy. So why pay thousands when you can get this pole that is just as good for around £299.
