Leeda match fishing brand, MAP, has strengthened its TKS pole range with the addition of two new margin models that are fully interchangeable with the current series.
The UK’s leading manufacturer and distributor of fishing tackle says that traditionally margin poles have been ‘heavy, unresponsive and sloppy’, but adds that the new M1 and M2 poles are something different. Shown for the first time at the huge UK consumer show, the Big One, they proved a great hit with anglers.
Both poles will interchange with a range of 01 poles and the TKS M1 margin is cross compatible with the new TKS 401/501 series as well as the original models. The TKS M2 is cross compatible with the new TKS 601/901 2G versions as well as the original 701/901 models.
They are supplied with two V1 Power Puller kits which MAP says are not only ‘ultra strong’, but now come pre-fitted with its new side puller bush and features the upgraded UK-made PTFE bush so they are ready to go out of the bag. The kits are rated up to a 20 elastic to handle the biggest carp.
MAP Brand Manager, Mike Robinson, said: “The TKS brand continues to grow and there are some big plans with new models being introduced in 2016 – starting with these two margin poles. We have managed to develop two ultra strong, responsive margin poles that have the feel of a normal match pole, but with the strength of a power pole.
“They are perfect for catching big weights in the summer months and also ideal as a back-up pole if you already own a TKS 401/901. Both models fit perfectly into the TKS range and like any model in the series, have been designed to perform.”
