I have raised my budget and ordered 3 x Century ADV-1, think they are a step up from the ng+ with better casting capabilities.

Anyone used them?

Look great and performance looks good

Another vote for the cerbera, had mine custom built, worked out about 250 each but worth the extra imo.

I have the free spirit E class gold 3.5 SU tc and they are a nice rod, great for bag/ distance work but also at home fishing small waters. I had mine in standard factory build and they are very nice but you can also have these custom built as well . I did have a look at the cebera and that is also a nice rod.

The free spirit blanks aren't UK made, the eclass factory builds are also built in the far east.
I believe the daiwa is UK made though.
Not used either so can't comment.

Love my Harrisons though and find them perfect for me

Love the Cerberas, I want something which is made in the UK, so these fit the bill. so do the free spirit.

I'm going more towards the Harrisons

What does everyone thick of the Daiwa infinity df's

Another one for the Harrison Cerbera.

I used to love my Chimera's but these are a nicer rod for my money, very similar to the torrix but a hint more steel to them whilst retaining a lovely action.

Don't think you'd go far wrong with these mate.

Mainly medium to large lakes, I'll probably go for 3lb tc.

Been looking at the daiwa df infinity's, free spirit rods.

Keen to see what every one else is using and getting on well with
