Fishing for Carp – Testing out the new TF Gear white edition reels

Fishtec sales advisor Jordon Hill visited cefn mably fishery a few days ago to try out an early Christmas gift from his misses; a pair of the stunning TF Gear force 8 White Edition tournament big pits! Torn between these and the DL blacks, it looks like Jordan made a good choice- they certainly look the part on the rods, but did they perform?

F8 White Edition reels: looking smart on the rod pod.

Teamed up with his Delta NT carp rods, and fully loaded with the new Nash NXT camo mono, as well as looking like the sharpest angler on the bank (tackle tart!), Jordon reported extra smooth casting, awesome cranking power and a balanced, totally smooth retrieve. Distance casting was achieved with complete ease, with Jordan declaring that ”the line just threw off them!”

19lb of hard fighting Cefn Mably common.

To top it off, after a day being plagued by nuisance skimmer bream, and getting a hook pull, Jordon was finally able to put the drag to test against something decent – a feisty 19lb common. ”Silky smooth, and responsive this drag is one of the best i’ve ever used”. His set up was a Korda PVA bag,  KD rig, 2 oz lead, and mainline pineapple/banana pop ups. Top angling!
