Win a Middy Xtreme pole

When our tackle tester Tom Scholey gave this pole a workout at Lindholme Lakes, testing it on some of the venue’s edge dwellers, here’s what he thought about it:

“This pole felt more like you might expect a pole costing upwards of £1,000 to behave, especially at the 9m and 11m lengths. It is the pole’s performance in the areas of balance and stiffness that has been improved compared to the MK1 model. According to Middy, the G-Pulse Fighter-Carbon fibres are made closer in proximity to each other, to create a parabolic super-tough action, without compromising weight and overall balance.

“Supplied with the pole is a standard (black) top kit, and an aptly named ‘Shadow Zero’ kit in white, perfect if you happen to believe that black kits spook fish. According to Middy, the G-Pulse Fighter-Carbon fibres are made closer in proximity to each other, to create a parabolic super-tough action, without compromising weight and overall balance. Both these kits are rated to a 30+ elastic, while the match kit in the pole is rated to a 22+ elastic.

“The top kits in particular really impressed me. A great length of elastic – not too long that you have loads out and lots of puller kitting is needed, but not too short that you ever feel really in danger when a fish goes on a big run.

“I finished the session really satisfied with the pole – what can I say, it performed fantastically and never really broke a sweat. A super-strong piece of kit. On balance, the pole and package are among the best that I have ever seen for a power pole.”
