In my opinion buying cheap lower quality tackle means buying twice, its always better to buy quality anyday. I reckon the penn affinity twin tip is one of the best out there and from time to time you do see reasonably priced second hand ones on the for sale section here. if its a new rod your after hear there's a new penn rampage out in and around 15ft and it won't break the bank, think Viking tackle in Bray have some in stock.

i have always used long rods i have had greys tripplex, the penn affinity, grauvell competition surf and now shimano surf leader all lovely rods but i would try get a cast first if i was you i have found the 15ft suits me better than 16ft i am sure a few lads on the site has some of the rods you are thinking of and wouldnt mind letting u try them
