Browning poles really are fantastic and this latest mid-range offering truly is superb. Handling at the full 14. 5 metres is brilliant and its rigidity is likened to a pole of a much higher value. Browning’s reputation with poles is constantly growing and with models such as this it is easy to see why.

Yet another superb pole from the guys at Tri-Cast. The Iconic uses the same technology as the fearsome Trilogy Pro 2 that we rated so highly. Packed with features and supplied with a great spares package, the Iconic Pro is a super-stiff pole with bags of strength. Well worth checking out!RRP: £1,549.

This 10ft two-piece rod is a wonderful commercial-fishery tool at a great price. The rod screams quality and the minimalist graphics and classy fixtures and fittings are pleasing to the eye. As far as performance goes this is up there with the best. It has a beautiful through action that will not only be great for carp but will also be suited to bream and skimmer work at short range.

Chief tester Roger Mortimore has handled many reels over the years and is impressed with the build quality and performance of the new Akios range. When three Akios multiplier reels arrived on my desk – the smaller 656CTM and the larger 757CTM and 757CS – my first impression was how solid they felt. When I removed the side plates for a closer inspection, I could see that they are extremely well made from quality materials. There are currently six reels in the stable; three in the 656 size – the CS, CT and CTM for shore and light boat fishing – and three of the larger 757 size for boat or heavy shore fishing, also CS, CT and CTM.
