With commercial carp getting bigger and bigger - having a strong pole is important in the right situation, and they don't get any stronger than the F10 Xtreme Specimen from Milo!

Joe Carass gets his hands on the new flagship Xitan pole from Browning – the Z16L. Browning’s Xitan Z12 was a watershed moment for the company, in my opinion. Of course Browning has an illustrious history when it comes to making incredible poles, but the Z12 was a game-changer for the modern era. The pole made the whole trade stand up and take notice.

The Best Yet? Is the Daiwa TDX the best reel ever made? Joe Carass thinks it might just be! I didn’t know what to expect when I received the new TDX to test. The previous black model was a huge hit and I have used the cheaper TDR models in my fishing for the best part of a decade. However, other than the recent TDR, I haven’t used one of the latest Daiwa reels. Firstly, let’s take a look at the TDX and the technology involved.

Match Fishing takes a look at a crucial item of tackle that makes keepnet management a doddle. Net management is a critical part of commercial match fishing now that strict net limits are in place on most commercial fisheries. Being able to position three or more keepnets is a common issue, along with having the space to correctly position those nets. The Seatbox Tool Bar from Frenzee is an effective way to position up to five of the company’s FXT Euro Nets in a nice compact way.

Joe Carass checks out the new cane-bristled patterns from Malman Floats. In this era of hollow bristles, it makes a refreshing change to see float makers using cane as a bristle material. I am a huge fan of cane-bristled floats and if more of my favourite patterns had cane bristles then I would use them all of the time. I was really excited when I saw Malman Floats release three new patterns that featured cane bristles and just had to buy some to give them a try.

Joe Carass reveals the latest elastic development from Matrix that he believes will revolutionise pole fishing. Without a doubt hollow elastics have become the most popular elastic choice for anglers across the UK. Their versatility and durability are essential for anglers who fish loads of different venues, and the fact is that fish loss is kept to a minimum thanks to the extra stretch. But it is fair to say that although we do have some fabulous puller devices now and elastic connectors have also moved on, there hasn’t really been any development in terms of elastic for a number of years.

Match Fishing runs the rule over Browning’s latest elastic range – Xitan Microbore. Hollow elastics have quite rightly been the most popular choice for pole anglers for a long, long time now. What once seemed like a ridiculous idea became the norm and anglers everywhere have bought into the hollow elastic concept. And why wouldn’t they? They are long-lasting, durable, user-friendly and they work! Like all products, things evolve and new technologies and manufacturing processes crop up that can improve the performance of elastics.
