Zeck All Black 2,70m 50g predatory fish rod in test IntroductionWith the All Black rod, Zeck has released a predatory fish rod some time ago, which according to the manufacturer works very well as an all-round rod and is suitable for all disciplines of predatory fishing. Since I usually only take one rod with me when I go to the water, I have been fishing the Zeck All Black for almost 3 months now. In the following test report you will find my experiences with the rod. Product detailsLength : 270 cmIdeal lure weight : 15 – 50 gTransport length : 139 cmLure weight tolerance limit : 60 gDivision : two-pieceRod weight : 161 gBlank material : carbon fibreNumber of rings : 7 + 1Ringing : SiCStartring : TUKWLSG /#25Roll holder : Fuji TVS /#16Length rear grip : 33,5 cmGrip material : EVADetachable hook holder : Fuji EHKM-BBUILD-UP & PROCESSINGThe Zeck All Black rod is delivered in a neoprene case, which protects the rod from damage during transport. This makes a good first impression and also the rod feels very good when held in the hand. The two-piece blank is plugged together in the middle and feels very light despite the length of 270 cm. This is due to the carbon fibre manufacturing, so the blank without reel is only 161 g. There is a small drawback here, even if this is only optical. At the point where the two halves of the rod are joined together, the connection could be a bit more invisible afterwards. The joint seems to be a little bit bigger than needed, so it looks like both rods are not yet perfectly connected. The handle fits well in the hand and is well made, different gap dimensions or uncleanly worked edges are not a sign. 8 guide rings run very smoothly and are cleanly made. With a transport length of 139 cm the rod should be easy to transport on most routes. The removable Fuji hook holder on the Zeck All Black allows the lure to be hooked in cleanly and easily. When not in use, it can be easily folded down for easy handling. handling & practicality As already mentioned, the blank is very light and lies very well in the hand. This means that even longer fishing with the Zeck All Black is no problem, even if after a few hours slight signs of fatigue can occur, which is normal for this rod size. Since the current in the Weser is quite good, I usually fish with 20 g and more, which together with the Zeck All Black has turned out to be a really good combination. The rod is quite taut, but not too taut, so that even small fish are fun to fight. price-performance ratioFor about 120 Euro you get a really good rod, which is ideal for spinning for zander or pike. I have used it mainly when fishing for zander and was able to get some good fish with the rod on the hook.ConclusionFrom my point of view the Zeck All Black 2.70m is one of the best all-round predator rods currently on the market. The casting weight of 50 g is completely sufficient for zander, perch and pike in 99 percent of the cases. All in all, you get a great all-round predator rod that should be sufficient for most fishing trips.
