The Effzett Micro Flex 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.


I KNOW that a lot of anglers have got their ‘fishing mojo’ back after going down the light lure route, where even a modest perch or ‘jack’ can ‘run you ragged’. It’s like being a kid again, and I can see the attraction.

The Effzett Microflex rod range, available in 6 ft and 7.5 ft lengths with a choice of 1-7 g, 2-10 g and 3-15 g ratings for each, is geared towards the smallest lures and lightest set-ups.

They’re designed on 30T carbon blanks, with SeaGuide micro-guides and look just the job for chub and perch, not to mention clocking up a few new species, LRF style, and having some fun along the way.

Price: from £59.99.
