daiwa team z rods opinions/info ?????

How do people rate these rods my friend bought the 13'6 surf and a lash with it and was highly impressed doesn't seem like an out and out casting rod more of an action for long range fishing but stil feels brilliant .. just looking to see has anyone else got one and how do they rate with the other top names as they sell for close to 400 euros

I bought the 13.6 one last year and I love it. Well worth the money. Iv used it for everything from flounder and bass in close with light leads to whacking out 8 oz down on the wall.

Ye my mate has one its a lovely fishing rod I ended up buying the daiwa tournament 139m and couldn't be more pleased with its performance the glass tip mixed with very powerful lower blank makes it ideal for long range fishing after years of using century and zziplex I've suddenly opened my eyes up to daiwa fishing rods they are superb fishing rods I'm getting the rgm from the z range next

Daiwa are the most under rated fishing rods ( multi's certainly ) out there despite being amazing fishing rods, power with amazing tips put them miles ahead of anything else out there IMO!

And ive had plenty other ones to back that statement up! :D

I agree with the lads although expensive the daiwa tournament I bought is in my eyes well worth the mo ey and no more expensive then some of the zzipies out there... daiwa rods really have their own unique feel suited to more fishing then casting yet the one I have would stil blast a lead to the horizon.. I'm starting to fall in love with daiwa rods ....
