The new 16m Maver Competition Match This 3 pole is part of a six-pole series and is touted as being the best sub-£1,000 pole the Redditch-based fishing tackle company has ever created.
But what is it that makes this particular pole, carrying a suggested selling price of £999.99, so much better than previous similar-priced models from the Maver stable.
Extra special attention has been paid to the fourth, fifth and sixth sections. They have been created with additional strength in mind, to create a seriously strong and rigid match fishing pole.
In the video below, Mark Sawyer takes the pole to the bank to give it a thorough test. To watch the video, click the play button.
