What are you going to use it for and what's your budget?

Hi Dan

For that money the following wouldn't be a bad choice:

Rod: Grauvell Teklon Concept Spin 802ml
£99.99 from Veals.co.uk, £90 from ABC,Beaumaris.

Reel: Shimano Exage 4000
£55 from various online retailers, ABC in Beaumaris may be able to better that price - worth giving them a call.

If you want to go cheaper on the rod the following is also worth considering:
Blackrock Akita Series 802ml
£48.99 (plus £10p&p) on eBay
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251290890418? ... 1423.l2649
I've compared the Teklon and Akita side-by-side and there's very little difference in both the finish and the action...possibly the same rod, who knows?!

Some good advice there ^^

Check out the lure forum classified sections too, such as

I would have bought the Major Craft if it wasn't sold already!

I'm guessing all these would be fine if you're using hard plastics and weighted softs like Savagear sandeels and 120mm Black Minnows, not so good for unweighted SP's.

The only variations that I'm aware of are front or rear drag options. Personally I'd go for the front drag as front drag systems tend to be smoother and more reliable than rear drags.

You do...like all things get what you pay for, the Teklon is an excellent rod for the money,I've had a hold of the shaky rod and although it will do a job it's not until you pick up a decent one that you will notice the difference! You need to consider the action and gram rating and length,I use a Greys 10/30g for the soft plastics which is 9' and
nice and soft but can also chuck a 20+g hard plastic....the front drag shimanos are all good:)
Just accept it, you'll always have sand in your car !!
