Angling Times can this week reveal that pole giant Garbolino is set to launch three new models under the G-Max banner and they will be in the shops by mid-December.
These latest launches follow on from the highly successful G-Max 700 which is regarded as one of the best poles launched so far this year, offering excellent balance and strength for its £1,050 price tag.
Garblino has kept the same G-Max profile mandrel and the good news for existing Garbo owners is that all the top kits and extensions from current poles can be fitted to these new models.
The 16m G-Max 800 will sit above the popular 700 and is said to be even stiffer and lighter, but just as strong. It has a price tag of £1,650 and is expected to be a much talked about pole.
Sitting below the 700 is the new G-Max 600 ¬ a 14.5m pole sharing all the same attributes as the original, but at a price of £749.99.
In addition to these two new models, there is also another tool designed for heavyweight hauling. It’s known as the G-Max Power Carp but don’t let the name fool you ¬ it has bags of strength for elastics up to No20s, but the addition of Power Lite top kits and a special carbon mean that this pole is no banana when fished at its full 14.5m length. It is expected to sell for around £850.
