Advice on new rod


New member
Hi guys, I'm looking at a new rod for round about 150 to 200 but haven't a clue what to get. 10ft 7wt or 10 1/2ft would be better with a through action..... Any ideas what to look for, cheers guys.


My advice would be to not spend much if you plan to use it at night. A lot can go wrong. You also won't be casting far.

I would go for a mid-priced through action rod, nothing too stiff as timing is difficult enough at night. I have a Greys GR30 which I love.

Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. I know exactly what you mean.... I've broke 2 guidelines in the last four year.

Check out Gary Evans of Cardiff, had some greys on offer the other day I believe.
