I got myself a Daiwa wilderness spin for the same thing. Also it comes in 6 bits and can be 9ft or 11ft. Casts 20-60gm Easy to transport. I use a small inexpensive shimano reel as I expect the salt water to eventually damage it. :(( Down side is being 5/6 sections it always feels as if at least 1 se...

Also Daiwa Wilderness spin.
6 pieces, can be 9 or 11 ft, depending on you preference.

That's 3 so far and I suspect that Shimano have a few offerings as well. :-/

All depends on what type of rod you like. There is an mention in this months SeaAngler about Bass plugging rods. Think they are refering to expensive ones however. Worth a read. But not a great deal of specific information. I have a Daiwa Wilderness spin rod that I use. It comes in 6 bits, and can b...

Just added my location, in general terms. Could actually be a problem as I asked about getting a rod modified and had a reply to try a place in Lancashire, would I have had the reply had rabbi2 known I was effectively at the other end of the country? Not saying rabbi2 wouldn't have but others may no...

Thanks, I will give them a call next week. I have found that many of the people advertising as rod builders run away. Seems many decorate rods but stop at that. Would like to learn have to make the joints up myself. :P As it will need a additional section I suspect that it should match up with the s...

Someone to modify/extend a rod

Hope General is the correct place for this as I cannot see a rod building section. I want a travel rod to take abroad. Bags I have are limited to 24ins max. I do not want to put a rod and travel tube through separately. I will get round to enquiring of Greys/Conoflex about modifing a 13ft blank by c...

Not sure of the price range or the date you want them for so could be too late or wrong on the price. I bought 2 sets of Bushnell binoculars from binoculars.com. They have similar spec 8x42, roof prism type. One pair is the H2O model, the other is the Natureview model. Both are excellent, the nature...

I'm in Letchworth, just up the A1 from Hatfield. Have to say bloody awful location to sea fish. Portsmouth is 2 hours by M25 and A3, on a good day. Alternativly M25-M3 to Southampton and Christchurch area, about 2-2.5 hours. Southend is closer in distance but the roads across are slower. Maldon is j...

Thought it a bit strange as asking for information about rods usually gets multiple replies and opinions on several makes and models. I just happened to see it as I was hunting for info on rod builders and came across it.
No mention of the alternative forum topic here.

Hi, Some time back I was building up a rod and I found that the Conoflex site had a big list of the spacing they use on their assorted rods. I know you are working on a Century but looking at the site there should be a decent match somewhere between one of theirs and yours which could be used as gui...

May be a bit too late but have a look at the Shimano Corvalus 300 I use one on one of the STC telescopic spinning rods 9 ft lots of sections. The corvalus also has a set of centrifugal brakes which you can play with but tend not to be mentioned in the advertising. Just remember how to get the spool ...

As the last post said buy one and give it a read, it can do little harm. I tend to pick up Seaangler but I suspect that this is because the front page displays more bits that I am interested in reading. Both should supply information to get you going, and at the end of the day whichever you try ther...
