Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard selected the best products that caught his eye during 2016. Here's his lowdown on the Preston Innovations Monster Roller Pulla Margin Pole...

A QUALITY product for a small investment, that’s how I saw the Preston Innovations 8.5 m Monster Roller Puller Margin pole launched last spring.

It’s long enough to reach most spots, and it’s specially geared up to handle those kerb-crawling carp whether you’re an experienced matchmen or just getting into it.

Made from quality carbon, this pole is well balanced, as you’d expect from Preston Innovations.

It comes already fitted with a Roller Pulla Bush, which is essential for this type of fishing when bringing large fish to the net.

It’s also supplied with a spare top kit, and is complete with a Roller Pulla, so you can have two different strengths of elastic rigged up and ready-to-go, depending on the swim and what you’re likely to connect with.

Ideal for fishing short on commercials or ‘down the edge’. It’s not going to break the bank, or your more expensive pole either, at under £130.

Price: £129.99.
