Well after umming and ahhing a lot i opted for the savage gear roadrunner rod and took it for a splash this afternoon, was aiming to pick out the resident bass in the moorings.
Though nothing happening so i went wandering rod in hand, a few casts with a tronix pencil lure 160mm i was getting slight nips i could feel through the rod.
Then a small launce hit the bloody lure!!! God i wish i had a small lrf rod for this sort of thing.
Nothing else showing though christened the new rod so happy days. Since i have made the conversion to lure fishing for everything this is not only a new species for me in general but first lure caught fish on my new quest.

they're lovely rods, especially for the price (got my 1st one new for £32 from amazon). I now have 2 which I reserve for my annual pollack trips to Ireland. I assume it's the 7ft one you got?
