New Clean/Mixed ground rod?

Postby enoonan001 » Fri Sep 12, 2014 1:12 pm

All,
I am looking to get a new clean/mixed ground rod. I have a RT Axellerator for the rough stuff but for clean/mixed ground the bite detection can be very poor.
I have been looking at the 13' Imax Beach twin tip and the 13' Penn Rampage. Both rods can be used FS or Multi but it is a multiplier I will be using mostly.
Any thoughts on the above two rods, especially on bite detection or any other suggestions. Max budget is €150 and as I say it will be a multiplier reel.

Thanks in advance

Eoin

For that price you will not go far wrong with the Grey's grx -s 13ft multiplier absolutely great bit of kit for the money ya won't be disappointed it's about 130 but it performs like a rod twice the price

Thanks sea serpant but with all the talk of them breaking I am dubious about them.
Have you had any issues?

My little brother who is fairly new to sea angling but I have used it and was very impressed for the price he has his nearly three years with no issues at all I didn't hear about them having issues with them breakin they certainly perform like a more expensive rod especially in the casting department then can bang a five ounce lead and bait out nice distances easily but if yer not too pushed on them another option ya have is looking for a second hand rod on here ya should get a fairly decent rod for that price second hand
