I was going to ask the same question as the other thread, however given the replies I'll be quite specific....:-D

I'm looking for something, up to £150 (approx), specialist SP rod as opposed to a "do it all", for use with jig heads around 7-12g, mainly using xlayers etc for bass over reefs, surf beaches and esturies

Recommendations please!

Also, more generally, what characteristics makes a good action in a rod for SP'[email protected] i.e. if I'm having a waggle in a shop what am I looking for!

Thanks for you help

Mike

The Teklon could be a good one to go for actually. It does have a nice soft tip - which is what you need if you're going to be carefully twitching lighter baits. One of the guys who actually uses one though may be able to give the best advice though. I used Henry's briefly, but not with a soft bait.

Other than that, i think there are a lot of allrounders in that price range, ike you say, but not many I can think of specifically designed for soft baits.

The Shimano Beastmaster and Speedmaster Drop Shot rods may be worth a look though!!

Also, if you fancy something fully different, Daiwa France make a nice rod called the Caldia Soft Bait (or something like that). It was a lovely rod to play with in France. Perhaps a bit of an unknown gamble though.
