The Maver Signature Pro Pole Support comes 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.

Description: pole support system.

Specifications: lightweight, stable and height adjustable system; fits 30 and 36 mm round legs; profiled or smooth top.

My verdict: I’m hearing that this well-thought-out pole support is getting a big thumbs-up from anglers, as it’s suitable for fishing on commercial fisheries and rivers.

The profiled top is designed for holding a long pole on a stillwater, thanks to its scalloped indents. If you want to work a float rig down a river, opt for the smooth top, as it allows a controlled, sideways movement.

The top rotates, making it easy for you to select the surface that you want your pole to rest on. It looks pole and line friendly, which is always an important consideration.

Price: £79.99.
