Agreed. Great rods and so easy to use. Casting solid bags has never been so easy but they are also great to play fish on.
I have the 12ft 3.25lb TC and woukd recommend them.

Bought a set of 12ft 3.25tc myself last year and have caught fish to just under 30lb on them.
Fantastic rods for the price, they can chuck a 4oz lead 120yards+ no problem and have a lovely playing action to them. Highly recommend.

Had mine for a couple of years now and still as happy with them as I was when I posted below, and even had the pleasure of catching a few to high 30s and they have been a dream to play a fish on. Casting wise I rarely fish long distance but with a 3oz lead can hit 100 yards quite comfortably

3.5oz casting weight seems optimal for the 3.25tc

A well packed solid pva bag should go 80 yards easy

I got the 12ft 3.25 I can’t really explain fully but there is something about these rods the only thing I can say is no effort to cast the feel of them is incredible never felt anything like it in other rods as for breaking there probably talking about scopes which are not in the same class as aircuve

Been using the 3 ¼tc for the past year. Having problems with line whipping around first ring, not sure if it's because the first right is slot further forward than other or if it's the reels or even the way I cast.

Their warranty service I have had to use as tip ring was damaged, they could send me the ring to fix myself or pay £30 for a new rod section. I never liked the tip rings so replaced all of them for anti frap type rings and put the old ones to one side just in case.

Other than that, I like um

had mine about 5 years now absolutely fantastic rods...I have the 12ft 3 1/2 in the duplon handles they are not broomsticks but very capable long range rods. I would buy another set without a single concern.

Brilliant rods, had freespirit hi-s 3.5s before swapping to aircurves, the 3.25 aircurve is a joy to use very responsive and nice to play fish on.
