I bought a Middy Carp Baggin' Machine pole* 3 years ago. It's a lovely pole to use and it's very strong. I've had lots of fish up to 5lb but last year I had a 23lb 4oz common carp on it and the pole worked really well. I have got Middy rods as well and very happy with them too. Thank you Middy!
*This pole is now discontinued.
