Bass / estuary rod

Postby Mickytommo » Sun Jun 07, 2015 4:11 pm

Firstly, as I'm new to the site Hi all!
Wondered if any of you had any recommendations for a good light Bass / estuary rod for use 'touch' fishing?
I don't want to pay a fortune but also don't want something that will only last 5 mns!
Looking at something 11 to 11'6" casting up to 4oz max.
Thanks! :D

Welcome to the site. There's a wealth of information and experience here- and a novice sea angler like me couldn't go wrong following events here.
Concerning bass rods,
I've got a daiwa d series- 11' 6", 2-4 oz; it's light as a feather, and you can feel everything through it.

If hopes and wishes turned into fishes....

2016 species:(15)
Starry Smoothhound, Thornback Ray, Black Bream, Ballan Wrasse, Corkwing Wrasse, Codling, Whiting, Flounder, Plaice, Dab, 3b Rockling, Dragonet, LSD, Silver Eel, Lobster, Starfish
