    Has any one used or got the above rod. I use zippy rods with my multi and for me there the best rod i have ever used. I have got a triplex but dont really like the feel of it.
    So any advice would be great. Thanks john.

    Not sure that Terry does a 16ft rod ??

    He did the gb3 and the gb3 heavy at 15ft. I have the heavy and its a great clifftop/backcasting rod. Maybe a bit stiffer in the tip than I would like but I use it with braid so still see the bites just fine.

    Yes rob they do. Well on the net at er bugger forgot the name. They had one. West coast or something. Not having net is a pain in the ass.

    Ducky the west coast is only 12'8 and is a light/clean ground pendulum rod.

    I think someone has told you the wrong thing mate. Thy are maybe getting mixed up the 16ft triplex by greys or the zziplex gb3 which is 15ft or 15'4 for the heavy gb3, both are 3 peice :yes:

    Hope this helps

    Thanks rob. Will have a look at them. Like the zippys so will just have to have a look at them you said about. Or wait and see if they do a long rod. And that would give me time to save up. Lol. Thanks again.
