I use a mk2 and must say what a powerhouse it is a great casting rod even when using the max weight 170 grams and bait it copes with no problem at all off the ground or a pendulum swing the rod sends the lead away so smooth leaving the bait intact my only issue is the bite detection is not the best and also the reel seat is a cheap nasty affair which i soon changed for coasters but don t let it put you off it is still a very capable rod

Lovely rod, did wonders for my casting skills. Tip recovery isn't the best but it's bite detection makes up for it. I wouldn't use it on really rough ground but if you're looking for a good clean/mixed rod that will send your bait miles and still have good detection then this is the rod for you.

I had a pair of mk1 Match -lasted me years, and really bought a new lease of life with a full rebuild a few years before they were sold. Still being put to good use by the new owner now -I only sold when I got some T800's.
They are a great all rounder for 5-6oz of lead. I used them in Norway catching double figure Cod and used them scratching in matches back home. Excellent bite detection, sits well in a tide, loads up easily, power to pull out of snags. If I hadn't have been able to get myself the T800's, just as a newer rod with a Glass Tip, I'd still be using them now.
