Browning "Warhorse" Classic Pole Match

Are you still using a “classic” Browning pole?  Or perhaps you have an “old favourite” Browning lurking in the back of your tackle shed?  If yes, you’re invited to use it in a planned special match with the chance to win a brand new Browning Xitan pole and some more prizes.

The match is free to enter and is open to owners of pre 2005  Browning poles (see below).  It will be held on Saturday October 18th at Tunnel Barn Fishery. Spectators will be welcome and visitors will get the opportunity to try Browning’s latest range of poles. Bob Nudd will fish the event but will not be eligable to win a new pole!

Frerk Petersen, Marketing Director for Zebco Europe / Browning says: “Browning has been making poles for more than 40 years and we still have lots of customers who own or use one of our older models.  It would be good to get these old “warhorses” out for a special match.  Anglers will also be able to compare the old poles against our latest models to see how far pole technology has advanced. Even if just visiting the event, we would still be really interested to see any older Browning poles people have.  I’m sure it will be an interesting and fun day, and somebody will leave with a new pole!". To enter, or for more information email with your name and contact details and model of Browning pole you will be using. Closing date is August 31st

There will be a just a few special rules (see below) to ensure a fair match:

1) The pole used must be a Browning pre 2005 model.  Pole ranges like the Carboxys,  early Black Magics, Titaniums, Legends plus many others will be eligible.  If you’re unsure if your pole is eligible email Browning on the address above.
2) There will be pole length limit of 13m maximum and 6m minimum.
3) A maximum of 2 topkits, plus a separate cupping kit, can be set up.

Book a place, dust off that old pole and come and have a fun day!
