The Sensas EVA Butt Protectors 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.

Description: pole protectors.

Specifications: EVA construction.

My verdict: these butt protectors will protect your pole sections from chipping and scratching when you’re shipping them back, and I’m hearing that they are already proving popular, thanks largely to the fact that the contoured EVA material makes it easy to fit them on poles.

The slightly tapered, 12 cm-long protectors are available in Small (41-45.5 mm) and Large (43.5-50 mm) diameters that fit Sensas poles and many other brands.

Simple but effective. Sensas recommended that you buy both sizes to protect your precious pole sections.

Price: £5.99 each.
