Gardner casting glove

Tried something new? Or had a product that has stood the test of time?? Why not write a review to help other with future purchases!!

I have the new PRIDE MEDITERRANEA SURF COMPETITION 100-200G 420 it is a great rod for the money fits in the car nicely. Its best casting 4 or 5oz havent tried 200g it would probably just bend the hell out of the rod and not get the distance your looking for just short distance i have been using plain leads torpedo shape ones and they fly out at distance. The bite detection on them is unreal the smallest of fish gives a massive indication the tips do sway around in big winds but you can tell a fish bite on them as the tip just pulls right down as the wind just makes it sway around i have the penn affinity 8000 with this rod loaded with 20lb braid and is a great set up its a lot more fun aswell feeling more of a fight with the fish always feels like a big fish on gerrys of morecambe got mine in for me for £135

Interesting stuff. Must apologise for the thread hijack though. Still think reel size could be reduced though when using braid maybe a 5000 6000 size. I found my penn was best on 4oz leads too. Only really used 6 in rough conditions.
Cheers for replies

If smaller reels are your thing Chris the Shimano Ultegra C14 XTA which I use on lighter rods is a superb
piece of kit it weighs the same as a 6500 multiplier as it is constructed from plastics opposed to alloy outer body parts and I cast 20lb braid on it around 100+ yds which is easily enough for 99% of my fishing.

yes mate,did a quick comparison......Shimano Biomaster 8000 loaded=

nearly 1lb 10 oz

and the Shimano Ultegra C14 5500 weighs.....half a pound lighter.

yeah i fall into the vertically challenged category too - i did sometimes find the 15'6" penn rod a bit unwieldy especially in the wind but it was a chunkier beast than these alcedo blanks.

Just seen this thread , great review Blanko , been looking at buying one of the Gardner gloves as I'm using a finger stall at the moment , I'm sick of my index finger being shredded on longer casts with a fixed spool braid set up :thumb:
