Had this up against the Daiwa Tournament Pro X at 16m although a touch heavier the TKS 801 is stiffer. The package is goods as well as you can swap it about to get the right combination of Power kits and Match kits that you want. Plus all the kits are the same length which is a bonus!
The new range of TKS poles has really pushed the boundaries when it comes to pole development. Using new and exclusive mandrels, we have been able to make each model lighter, stronger and better balanced. On top of all of this, they also offer a host of innovative features and you also have the ability to choose your own spares package. Its everything you have ever wanted from a pole.
