I have just got back from a 3 day trip.
The first thing I intended to do was advertise 3 of these rods for a good friend for a silly price.
I am now wondering if its the same rods????
If they are youve got a real bargain and they are immaculate...was it E.bay from Brum??

Yes mate, its the same rods.
You have no worries,Baz is 1000% genuine,he is just the biggest tackle tart in the world and has been known to upgrade tackle before he has unwrapped it.
I always get offered his gear before anyone else,and yes I was very tempted but even at that ridiculous price I just can"t justify any more rods.
As with all tackle everyone has thier own prefereces but I can promise you these rods are in pristine condition(he always looks after his gear)and you have bagged a real bargain.
Have no concerns mate you are on to a winner.

Had these a season now and i have to say they are fantastic. I'd go as far to say better than my old greys prodigy.
They have a really forgiving tip in a fight, but loads of grunt in the lower section of the rod for chucking out those deadbaits or atopping a fish in its tracks before it gets to snags etc.
Really good quality reel seat and handle and the blanks are well finished and still look like new even they've been chucked about a bit in the car and on the bank etc.
I've even used them for carping too as I love the action and useability of them so much. The 30mm butt rings don't seem to hinder distance casting much to the annoyance of the 50mm trend setters. Maybe my extra height gives me an advantage there?!? Lol
Overall i would recommend these highly and buy them again at the drop of a hat.

This seems to be one of the few places you can still get them.

Forgot to say i've had these paired with some Daiwa Regal-z's and they make a really nice balanced set up.

Hello to all of you pike anglers.This is my first post here,and I want to apologize for my bad English,I will try to be as much understandable as I can.
I have a few questions about Maver Armageddon 12ft rods,so I will be more than thankful if someone is will to explain me a few things.
Recently I bought three of these rods for 150 euro,brand new.Rods seems great,lovely action,finish work,cork,etc.
But,one thing bothering me very much,and that is thin walls on this rods.I hope I write this right and understandable.
When I want to put upper section on the lower of the rod,I was very surprised and concerned how thin is wall on upper section,and on the lower is not very massive also.
I fish on river with a few very deep spots,and from time to time Catfish take the bait cast for Pike.I'm concerned how this Mavers will do on 15kg or more Catfish with blank thin like this?
Also,this price I paid for rods is to good to be true for 12ft carbon rods,not to mention the reputation of Maver brand.I bought them in Hungary on sale,and the salesman told me those are last three items on stock,so the price is that low.
I had a few Nash Hooligun rods backdays,and they were just fine.These are my first Mavers,so can anyone reply to me are yours Armageddon 12ft rods also have thin walls,or maybe I bought a false rods,a copy?Don't know what to think anymore...
Thank you in advance.
