The Century cccld. For its price you won't get anything that comes near it in my humble opinion anyway its a cracking rod comes in a lovely rod bag complete with reducer and can definitely be called an all rounder.I don,t work for century by the way!!!just a favourite of mine.


hope this helps

Cheers everybody, but I must admit that the Conoflex rods do sound good. Their quite expensive though, but I suppose you pay for what you get.

Thats exactly why i reccomended the cccld its within the budget that the chap specified can be used in a variety situations thus making it a great all rounder and you don't have to be a mighty pendulum warrior to get the best from it.

So a cracking user friendly rod great all rounder job done

yes but i did recomend a second hand rod would be better as you get alot more for the money as it is alot cheaper and there is some bargains to be had especialy conoflex rods as the they dont hold there price like zziplex and century do but still a really good make of rod and they know how to build them aswell so you do get better value
