Founded in the spring of 1980 Zziplex Ltd. Terry was able to capitalise on his experience of breaking the British Casting Record several times during the late sixties and seventies.
Every single rod produced by the factory is made by Terry himself, making him the biggest single influence on the casting and fishing scene in the U.K. His creations are much copied but never emulated and can be seen at every saltwater or casting venue.
Anyone who has owned a Zziplex rod in the last 30 years is usually a convert.
With so many outlets throughout the world to take care of, blanks are sometimes much harder to get hold of. Luckily they are always worth the wait.
The UK HOOKS logo on all our rods is your guarantee that Chris Dance has built it, like only he can, producing a superb unique fishing rod made to our own exacting standards or your own specification!! Thats as good as it gets!
ALL THE RODS AND BLANKS LISTED HERE ARE STOCK ITEMS. I DON'T TAKE ORDERS, OR TAKE MONEY FOR ITEMS I DON'T HAVE.IF YOU REQUIRE A BLANK I DON'T HAVE I AM HAPPY TO EMAIL OR PHONE YOU WHEN THEY ARRIVE.I DO NOT LIKE FALLING OUT WITH MY CUSTOMERS AND I FIND THIS IS THE BEST WAY. MIKE TAYLOR.

Zziplex M4 Hi-flex match
Equal section, strong and sensitive finely balanced Match rod. More power than the HSM, slimmer blank and a beautiful glass tip. Casts 6oz and bait with ease and one of the best allround rods we have expierienced. Very user friendly. Can't praise this rod enough.
Zziplex M4 EVO
Zziplex M4 EVO GT
The new M4 Evo GT (Glass tip) is a revelation to me. I have been using it for the last month and have been completely surprised with the power and ease of use. The only criticism I had with the standard M4 Evo (capable but sometimes with a sting in the tail) was the tip action and the glass tip version has transformed this into the ultimate slim match rod. I have all the M4 variants but could never quite master the Evo but the GT makes it a totally different rod.
Same Test curve, same dimensions as the M4 EVO but with a glass tip. built with higher Modulus content. Slim powerful beauty.Gives 20% more power but weighs the same. DELIVERY OF RODS TO UK MAINLAND £4.50 +vat. S.Ireland £16.00 + vat & Channel Islands £16.00
