Looks and sounds a good little rod actually! Shame it's not just a tad longer though? Still, could be ideal for some vertical and short range stuff!

Nigel, this is quite an interesting find. I too am enthused by the jersey boys exploits on the really light stuff and have been looking for a budget option for a light rod. have you used the rod yet to give us any clues?

for the money, IM7, 6ft ?

don't rule it out.

SP's aren't plugs and harbours etc can have tight nooks and crannies.

3g rated...

why not give it a go.

I have 2 X 6ft rods for cranking small plugs that are just fine. Not long casters but good fun.

It might be a nice cheap stop gap till we determine our needs more fully.

Lets be clear, some plugs cost more than this rod !

Gotta be worth a go.

This is what I am thinking, Keith. How bad would it have to be to not be worth the money? Considering my main bass rod is the Quantum Energy Bass (quite "heavy" compared to some) I do need a lighter rod for fishing small SPs

Remember too, 2 years ago, we all wanted 9 and 10 foot rods.

Yes, I still have 2.70's but I mostly fish 2.40 and 2.10's now

Injection at 7' 3"

I would have laughed at you m8 if you'd have suggested a 7' 3" rod at £350 would have become my fast favourite.

The mind boggles it really does.

I haven't used it yet but it seems a cracking rod for the money.

I'm going for one (so don't bid against me please!), and will put my Shimano Exage 2500FA on it. Have to get some lighter braid now...

Thanks, Mark. I was just looking there as I got my PP .23 from them, and had the 8lb in mind. They seem cheaper than anyone for the Powerpro even though it has sneaked up £1 to £13.50.

Just ordered mine. Am planning to spend the afternoon watching rugby, football & looking for a tidy little reel & some new ultralight sp's on line.

Mine's on the way and I anticipate a few quid with AGM for jig heads and SPs this week...

Jeremy - exactly the same as that! The rod is lovely (nice tube and cover as well) and the rod is perfectly balanced with the Exage 2500RA that I have for it. Just got to get the 8lb PowerPro on and then as you say it's time to play with all the little plastic toys!
