Browning "Warhorse" Classic Pole Match 2015

Are you still using a classic Browning pole? Or perhaps you have an "old favorite" Browning lurking in the back of your tackle shed? If yes, you are invited to dust it off and use it in a special match,  with the chance to win a brand new Browning Xitan pole, or one of many other tackle prizes.
The match is free to enter and is open to owners of pre-2005 Browning poles (see below). This year's event will be held on Saturday October 10th at the prolific Colemans Cottage Fishery in Essex. 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.  We love to see these old „warhorses" out for a special match. Last years inaugural match was held at Tunnel Barn where we saw Browning poles up to 25 years old being used. Some had obviously had a "hard life", but others were immaculate and well cared for by their owners. Everybody had an interesting story to tell about their "old pole". The match was won by Clive Nada using his 20+ year old Browning "Advance". Clive was presented with a new top-end Browning Xitan Z8 pole as is prize. The match was a huge success and enjoyed by all who took part, so we intend to repeat the event this year at Colemans Cottage in Essex - a different area of the UK that will certainly "flush out" more old Browning poles".
