Joe Carass explains why he just keeps going back to the successful Swim Stim range from Dynamite Baits! I have spoken before about being a huge fan of Green Swim Stim. It’s a bait I have used for as long as I can remember and it’s a bait I will continue to keep using. I just wanted to talk about other groundbaits in the range that I also use, and other tweaks that I have since added to my Swim Stim selection. First up is a bream mix that I have used over the past two years that really has served me well, and that is a 50/50 blend of Green and Natural.

£799 for a back up pole? Or is there more to it than that? We check out the Browning Sphere Zero-G Power Partner! For me, having used it numerous times, the Browning Sphere Zero-G is the most impressive pole on the market. I don’t say that lightly as there are so many incredible poles out there. But The Sphere is just unbelievable and for me set a new benchmark in terms of performance. If there was one slight asterisk surrounding the Sphere, and it’s completely unfounded by the way, is its strength.

Joe Carass gets on the bank with this stunning looking range of rods from Browning. I am a huge fan of Browning rods. Having used the Black Viper MK2 range extensively over the last 18 months, I have been drawn into seriously checking out all of the other rods in the range. The Silverlite rods were a range that definitely intrigued me.

Joe Carass joins Rive’s Amer Jawad on the bank to take a look at the new R16 range. Rive has offered something of a sleeper hit in the pole market for a few years now – the R16 Professional is an incredible pole that probably hasn’t had the attention it deserves in the UK. Anglers across Europe have realised what a special piece of kit it is, but for some reason in the UK it’s stayed under the radar. However, those who have seen them and got their hands on one realise what a great pole the R16 Professional is.
