Tackle Review – Tackle Box CF-X 18m Telescopic Baiting Pole

If you’ve read my most recent blog, you would have already heard what I’m about to say. If not then keep reading!

When I say this piece of kit has doubled my catch rate, I’m not lying. I mentioned it above, yep that’s right, it’s my baiting pole from The Tackle Box. I absolutely love it. I’ve been using it for a few months now and in that time 90% of the carp I’ve caught have been while using it.

What I love about the baiting pole is how stealthy it is compared to a bait boat. With a bait boat, it may be half an hour or more before fish return to your spot after getting your bait back out. While using the baiting pole, if your careful you can drop your rig right on top of feeding fish without disturbing them at all, meaning you are fishing effectively for longer. Another advantage of a baiting pole is its reliability. A baiting pole doesn’t run out of charge like a bait boat. It doesn’t have lots of little parts which can be expensive to fix and replace and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than a boat.

One obvious drawback of a baiting pole is its range. I have the extension kit which is fantastic and gives the pole an even greater range. It has been crucial to reaching those nooks and cranny’s just past the reach of the 18m telescopic section alone. You can add as many extensions as you like, meaning if you wanted to, you could reach distances of over 30 meters and drop the bait exactly where you want with good few hand fulls of free offerings around it. The baiting pole eliminates the need for a perfectly accurate cast which may end up snagging in a branch.

The baiting pole and extension kit fits perfectly on the side of my rod holdall, so I don’t need to haul around any extra luggage and its super light. If you’re thinking of buying a baiting pole, then stop thinking and go get one, you won’t regret it. If you are thinking of buying a bait boat, think again. Unless you’re going to be fishing at silly long distances like 100 yards plus then a baiting pole may be the better option. The Tackle Box are also offering £25 off their baiting pole and £10 off their extension kit. Check them out here: Baiting Pole Extension Kit
