Maver Redemption SX 13m Pole Review

Pile on the power with this 13m pole
Maver Redemption SX is all club anglers need

Maver has a fine record of making sought-after poles away from it’s very popular competition Match This range. Names such as Jurassic Carp, Totality and Medusa all boast an illustrious sales heritage. This new Maver Redemption SX 13m Pole may not reach the dizzy heights of its iconic predecessors, but it certainly reflects European carbon technology at its best.

Italian manufacturer Reglass has constructed a stunningly powerful nine section pole which has been built to Maver’s exacting standards, so it’s perfect for use on UK commercial carp fisheries.

Being equipped with a stout section wall strength to cope with elastics up to No20 and beyond would normally make a pole very weighty in hand. It would also impart the top-heavy feel that makes so many power models cumbersome and slow to fish with. But thanks to a clever combination of carbon cloths, placed together on a fast-tapering mandrel, the Redemption SX weighs only 915g at its full length, and has a surprising degree of rigidity. That leads to a reasonably quick (post-strike) recovery time, so you can ship it out on a short line without tangling your rig. It doesn’t resemble a banana in its profile, nor will it wobble around uncontrollably like a jelly on a plate once you strike into a fish.

For the price it’s an almost ‘must-have’ pole for the club match or pleasure angler who regularly visits commercial carp venues. Perfectly suited to margin and close quarters paste tactics, it comes with a generous spares package to avoid having to buy extra top kits for those days when you need a few extra rigs setting up.
