Just to get back to the original post: I do not use a multiplier reel, except for boat fishing but can chuck out well over 100 yds using "off the ground" technique and a decent size Okuma fixed spool reel (£30). As far as rods go, there is also the Shakespeare Salt Beach which can be had for £50 if you search around and the Fox Impressa which some guy was selling on ebay for £30 recently (very good value for a beginner). I personally don't believe in these wacking great rods which some folk use - why should I if I can do 120 yds + with a 12 - 13 ft rod which is far easier to manage.
