Not the new ones but I've got x2 sets of the 12ft 9 3lb 4oz Mk1 and there lovely rods to play fish on, but getting a bit soft now so not great at distances.

Newest ones, they are all nice rods but these latest ones are slimmer, lighter and still retain the classic hearn action and build.

Thanks mate. In your opinion would the Mk 3s be the best model to get or are earlier models better?

Personally I don't think the difference between 40mm and 50mm rings makes any difference on these both being 12ft but even the 12ft 9inch one that can be bought with either 40mm or 50mm ringing I doubt there would be much difference in casting distance.

Extra length isn't needed at all, especially if looking at 3.25. I'm on different rods (Grey's aircurve) same length and TC and can hit 100 yards with barely any effort and I'm not a champion caster by any means.

I was wondering about the 12 9 versions but I'm only needing to cast up to 100-120 absolute max so not sure the extra length is needed.

Is the main difference between the 40mm and 50mm around casting distance?

I've got the 3lb tc version and love them, not much between these and the 3.25tc but I prefer the 40mm rings, the 3.25tc may be a better option if you want to use larger bags than the golf ball size I use.

Hi mate. I have a set of the 12ft 3.25ís and absolutely love them. Iíve had every version of Terry Hearn rods since the mk1ís about 15 or so years ago, and these are the best so far. They feel much lighter than the Shimano TX9ís that I had before them, have a lovely progressive curve that the Hearn rods are known for, but can cast plenty far enough. Iíve just been fishing at 23 wraps with 17lb fluorocarbon and Iím a s**t caster! In my opinion you would struggle to find better all round rodsÖ..and they look the balls too!

I'm planning on upgrading my Shimano TX2s 12ft 3.25lb and looking currently at the Terry Hearn ESP rods. Probably the new 12ft 3.25 rods.

For those who've already got them what do you think?
