I know a few people have them a while now,,, but how are they going? Any issues arise?
I got a chance to have a quick look at some last night and TBH wasn't very impressed! :? Mainly with the cage and considering it is their version of the original
P-tech's which are 100% i must add and cost less,,, but for the money they are asking for them (E250 each!! :shock: ) they should be spot on straight out of the box ,,, simple issues like spool rub, over breaking and generally running very slow, they call them "tournament specials!", im not convinved...
Anyone owners of them got any input...? MC how is your one going? have you had it on court? if so how did you get on?

seen one go on an auction site for £110 there last week. In your opinion have you cast further with low profile cages Paddy?

never fished with and the only issue i have with mine was it was a bit slow, but once the bearings have been broke in distance has been increasing, even managed a pb on the 150g with it so all hope isnt lost yet. Never gave a ptech a cast so cant compare them.

Yes,, but then again most of my reels are low profile,, IMO its all in the mind! if you can get a better grip of the spool your brain tells you to really go for it,, so with your confidence up you tend to put a tad more into the cast hence getting better distance...
