Zziplex advice anyone know them well

Postby sea serpant » Sat Nov 03, 2018 4:19 pm

I used to own a few zzippys years ago but took a brief hiatis to use century and daiwa rods but i want to buy two new zzipys ..

The first is for general beach work cod hounds etc at distance over clean ground there no real question here ive to decided to go with the primo synchro ive tried it before feels ideal and alot of people agree that its one of the best all round fishing rods they have ever produced so im happy enough with that choice ..

My next choice is confusing me ? Im looking for a long rough ground rod ive looked at the zeteque the m427su but the 14 ft dymic bullet lt seems exactly what im looking for ive looked at newer versions of the bullet the gt and hiflex etc but they just dont feel as stiff in the tip or as powerful as the dymic bullet and my question is am i mad going for the slightly more dated dymic lt bullet even though it feels ideal or should i spend my money on a newer version i know zziplex hold their value and are all great rods just looking for advice on a rough ground zziplex so is it the dymic bullet lt or one of the newer hiflexes etc ???

If you like the primo why not go for the primo full tournament same action just way more powerful

I like the way the synchro feels for what im using it for would you use the full tournament for general clean ground fishing or just rough ground ??

Mixed to rough ground ideal for the full tournaments. Standard primo and synchro's are great rods for clean to mixed stuff..
If its a glass tipped rod your after for the rough stuff and don't want to go down the road of a zeteque GT, TXL GT, M427/hi flex's, the bullet GT is a far better rod than the dymic lt bullet IMO.
If you think the top half of the GT tip feels a little soft when your building it use the harder side of the blank, completely changes the power and feel of the rod but still retains that glass tip.
But feeling softer doesn't always mean less powerful.

To be honest I think I'd rather the bullet lt rather than the glass tip versions for what I want it for thanks for the reply I think I'll choose between the bullet it or primo tournament for my rough ground fishing

Zeteque hiflex is a cracking rod for what your looking for...
