The Trilogy Pro 2 pole remains the thoroughbred of Lancashire company Tri-Cast’s range, a deluxe 16.5m model aimed at the serious angler and one which leaves no stone unturned in terms of top kits and extras, meaning that fishing with something very special indeed.
Extras and looks only go so far to creating the best pole money can buy however and it’s in terms of strength and rigidity that the Trilogy Pro 2 really weighs in. Using a new and unique multi-lateral high modulus carbon combined with ultra-light resins infused in a specialised production process, you’re left with a pole that’s far superior in all aspects to its predecessor, the award-winning Trilogy XS Competition pole.
However, don’t think that this pole is merely an upgrade of an already outstanding pole – far from it! The Trilogy Pro 2 is a brand new model using the latest technology, materials, production processes and mandrels to leave the user not only pleased, but damned well astonished too.
Light with a balanced feel, even at the pole’s full 16.5m length, stiffness and response on the strike outstanding, with an instantaneous action with no bounce using either match or power kits. This is achieved by the introduction of new kits produced on a steeper tapered mandrel and every top kit has re-inforced double wrapped areas, which allow you to drill and fit your own puller kit system.
As you’d expect from Tri-Cast, strength is there in abundance, combined with a quality build and re-inforced joints, super slide finish on all sections giving you utter reliability and years of trouble free fishing.
But anglers have also been listened to, something reflected in the spares package of this pole, with the introduction of a short number three section plus an extra cupping kit top meaning the angler now gets two cupping kits, one for use with longer match top kits and the other for longer power kits, ensuring pinpoint feeding at all times. All of this comes complete in the burgundy and black Tri-Cast super deluxe pole holdall and with individual tubes for each spare top kit and pole section.
