Look no further that FreeSpirit rods .
I’ve had the Harrison’s etc but there is nothing that matches FreeSpirit rods . I had some Torrix barbel rods and they lasted a week , switched over to Seekers from FS and there is no comparison.
I’ve now got FS pike rods and they are a class above .

Didn’t you say you’ve already been offered £100 for the Predator Xs?

Ya a good used one went for £102 I believe couple weeks ago so will be interesting! ( ov’s got the fees to come off that ) Amazing how much some old fox rods go for, just bought some old fox Kevlar barbel rods that was best part of £450 on the pair,

the rod for £102 was me. lee watched it and put it on thinking £100 collected im guessing. the rod i sold included next day courier. as the buyer pleaded to post.(was on at 70) i left it as collection as i agreed with the buyer to deter others.

yours being as new may get a run on that. we will see lee.

Free spirit so a more higher range than the e tamer boat rods the s range which are excellent too,they do a 10 ft boat model which is around a 3lb test curve,I believe Tony kay can custom build them as well

Freespirit s range special boat pike 10’ is an awesome blank. The best I have seen but should be as a lot of top pike anglers had input into its design.

Now that's a coincidence, quite honestly, I was sorting some Tench gear out earlier, re-spooling the reels on my chimeras and my two pikemasters were there, nestled in the rack behind a few other rods. I was wondering if I'll ever use them again??

Even if I don't, I can't bring myself to get rid :neutral:
I don't have a nickname :roll:

There the ones, £170 + the postage. Just sold a pair of mint predator Xs for £160 so not really cost me anything 👍🏻

Nice if I don’t like the pikemasters I’ll get a new set of Dave’s rods next year but with all this covid 19 going just didn’t want to shell out on them just yet
