Zziplex Powertex Bass. dunno why but its the 1st rod i pull from the bag for beaches if the conditions allow it. also a crackin rod for feathers, heavy spinners and float fishing.

2nd up would be the century ttsm. only got it a few weeks ago but very happy with it so far.

best casting rods have to be zzipies, but when it comes to fishing theres a bit more competition out there. havent been dissapointed by daiwa yet, the awt, awb and tdxs range are alll proper fishing rods and casting wise, are really user friendly. true all rounders 8) 8)
species for 2009 (42)
species for 2010 (27)
species for 2011 (12)
species for 2012 (8)
[i][b][color=#0000BF] best advice for catching species is girls dont like fishing and its hard to catch fish when you sell all your gear'[/color][/b][/i]

Lt - 14

Suits my style with a fixed spool, three baits a distance and a red or green impact lead.

If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

Zziplex GB3 Lite - Casting 3 baits far or large bait & lead.
