One of the best rods I've used and it's only £30!! I know Graham uses Blackrock, anyone else use them?

Blackrock rods

Postby Godders123 » Sat Dec 05, 2015 4:38 pm

I'm not sure whether it's the same rod as you have Dave but Ian (DingleCodCatcher) bought a Blackrock lure rod and it appeared to be identical to my Teklon Concept Spin other than the guides. I paid a penny short of £100 for the Teklon, Ian paid less than £60 for the Blackrock.

Graham as you know there good bang for the buck. I've given the one I have a right hard time and it keeps on ticking. It's the action of it that impresses me as I've rods 2-3 times the price that don't feel as good to use. It's just to make people aware to check them out if there in the market for a new lure rod. I'm off to Kinsale in Ireland with work on Monday for a week or two and it's defo coming with me.. :thumbsup:

I'm hearing good things about this rod, might go look at one this weekend. Also want to check out the Sunset Wavemaster.

I don't think the Blackrock conti's have a hybrid tip do they?

Yes I think it's a hybrid as opposed a tube tip. Approx £200 new.
