Just thought this might help mate:- My 'bass' rod is an Abu Garcia Equaliser 9' 6" carbon fibre uptider. This I know is gonna sound very strange but just bear with me:- I can use it on a boat if I want, it has a good enough action for bite detection, I can use it on the pier/dockside and I can cast over 100 metres, which is plenty for mr bass wandering along the shore line. Besides all that it is only two sections and cost me (3 years ago) just £35. Abu Garcia call it an uptider, I call it my all rounder and it hasn't let me down yet despite being booted around, thrown in the back of the car, and hauled on mightily a few times when I got me trace snagged. I know this is not the sort of discussion you will ever see in a fishing mag. but I just sort of thought about what I really needed to catch fish in a lot of different situations. Then I went to the tackle shop shop and said show me a tough rod that I can do all these things with which wont cost the earth and that's what I walked out with! :wink:

Very interesting post from seannylong: A few weeks ago I decided to take the plunge with reeldeels and bought their 12' 3 piece carbon surf for £14.99. I was pleasantly surprised, it was actually a 4 piece - with a stiff tip or a floppy one (take yer pick) and it was indeed a full carbon blank albeit with ali-oxide rings. Yes, of course it was made in Korea but at the price I cant fault it and have cast it well over 150 yds which is plenty for the fish I am targetting on Hayling. I believe they also do a carbon bass rod but would have to look to be sure. It might not be quite the right length but the bass don't know that and you can be sure I will be catching bass with it this year! ( hopefully plaice and sole too). I have also very recently bought their kiddy 360 fixed spool reel - 3 ball bearings, front drag with bite detection 'clicker', fold down handle and a very smooth action for £7.49 yes, I did say £7.49 other tackle shops will charge you upwards of £25 for a similar reel but unless you are a tackle tart, why pay more! No I do not work for them. Why do I buy cheap tackle? - because I am a pensioner and just want to catch fish but I make sure the kit is not rubbishy before I buy.

OK who needs a 'bass rod', it's just a gimmick that the trade has dreamed up. My last decent sized bass was caught using my 9'6" uptider from the shore. I fully expect my next bass to be caught with the excellent 12' (just 6inches longer than a so called bass rod) carbon surf from Reel deels. :lol:
