Zziplex Primo Synchro

Postby dinglecodcatcher » Sat Oct 04, 2014 8:19 pm

Hi lads. I'm after some feed back off people who either own or have used one. I'm going to look at one tomorrow. The condition is as new in excellent condition and fairly cheap compared to the prices I've seen around.

Regards Ian

Main thing to look at with a used rod is the quality of the build and general condition of the blank.These have been around for the best part of ten years so it could be an old rod thats well used and a bit tired.
Great casting tool bit awkward to carry around with the 7 foot something tip and bite detection is not as good as some.
I had one for a few years then got an HST off someone in a swap so sold it on,not long after I sold the HST to Brother Brendan as I never got on with it.

I have the M4 hi flex which as you know has the same tip as your GT. How do you compare the primo synchro to the Gt joe? Is it the tip or the whole rod that feels better?

synchro just feels better when casting. and it feels better fishing mixed ground. but saying that my gt pulled a 13lb hound in like it was a doggie.

The trouble is we could end up spending a fortune trying to find the perfect rod for all occasions :think:

I think I want another one for a different occasion. Like clean ground. But I have my yuki for that really. Ken the rod was built by Chris Dance and is in prime condition. Not a mark on it what so ever. Not even finger prints :badgrin:
