The Effzett Nova Spin Lure Rods come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

LURE fishing isn’t just a lot of fun, it doesn’t cost a lot of money to get off the mark with rod ranges like the Effzett Nova Spin range.

Covering a lot of bases, there are 17 rods in total from a 1.65 m (5.5 ft) 1-8 g rated super light ‘searcher’ for working soft plastics and jig heads for the likes of perch and chub, all the way up to a 2.7 m (9 ft) 20-80 g rated tool for punching out bigger hardbaits and shads and setting the hooks in big pike.

Available through DAM, these rods are built on X-fast TC24 carbon blanks, with K-Frame guides, a quality cork handle and EVA fore and rear grips. If you’re thinking of taking the plunge, check them out.

Prices: from £39.99.
