The VAPA is £70..
Is that used ? I currently use a vision nite catapult 9’6” 7/8# it’s a great bit of kit and for me it’s a perfect sea trout rod, I use an 11ft switch rod if want a bit more length or think I will struggle with a back cast. I haven’t used a vision rod yet that I havnt liked and I’ve had my hands on a few 👍

Yeah mate, think they retail over £150 new.

Think i'm gonna try going for it along with a Greys GRX if the seller will post as its for sale on facebook marketplace

Another rod I was looking at there, Redington Redlfy, "in hardly used excellent condition" is it me or is the top section missing a piece and the top eye? :ROFLMAO:

Spoke with the seller and asked if it was a 3 piece or 4 piece as it wasnt stated. He said it was a 4 piece, i asked why only 3 pieces in his pictures, he told me piece 2 had snapped so was being sold with only 3 pieces!

Hate Ebay sometimes..

Honestly mate them Shakespeare agility 2 rods in 9ft6 or 10ft for a 7wt are the real deal brand new for £60 can't speak highly enough of mine and I've put it threw its paces over the last fortnight or so with 45 fish using heavy lures, it never missed a beat!, decent Cork and whippings. Smooth finish nice solid action Honestly a bargain 👌

The GR60s are about a ton new now (depending on length/weight). I have a 9ft6 8 wt and it’s no slouch at all and should suit most casting styles. Very nice action for sea trout

John Norris' own brand ni1 single handed rods are only £95.00 Its gotta be worth a call to them and see if they have any. They sometimes have promotions and throw in a free fly line. The rod are fantastic. The lines are very much budget ;)

Morning guys..

My finances now dictate that new fishing gear isn't the top if my priorities.. I'm looking for a new rod, on a budget!.. For years I have used my Greys Greyflex 10ft 7w which has been outstanding however, i'm needing another rod. The 3 i have looked at were the Shakespeares Agility,Sigma and the Airflo Delta.
Anyone with a better knowledge of newer rods than me vouch for any of those? Or indeed, recommend a better one on a "budget"
Thanks,
Andy
why pay a fortune for rods they don't catch anymore fish
