Here you will find tackle, rods, reels and any bits & bobs used in coarse fishing reviewed. My intention is to give you an honest opinion of what I think regarding these pieces of equipment, it’s positives and it’s negatives.

With so many rods on the market today professing to this or do that my aim is to give you an insight from angler’s perspective before you go out and pay your hard earned cash on these, sometimes very expensive items.

If you don’t know what tackle to choose, and you have a set-up in mind with cash at the ready I hope to answer your questions here with my assessments to help you making those very difficult decisions.

Weather barbel, carp or any other British big coarse fish are your quarry I hope to, in the future help you out and find something in regards to your particular niche. 

If you don’t find the answer you’re looking for here, please e-mail me at: and I will help you out as my knowledge of rods and reels in particular is quite varied.

You will see a lot of product reviews from Pallatrax here very soon as I aim to help push the brand by getting more people to use their products as it’s a company on the up in regards to tackle and bait. I use their products now because they catch me fish and I hope during these reviews and many other means on my blog I will show you why and ultimately proof to my findings.

The reviews will be ‘parented’ to this page
