    Im after the above, but cant make my mind up which to go for. I am thinking Kenzaki, have any of you guys got one. And if so, what do you think of them. What sort of species have you landed with them.
    Got to make my mind up soon, as its going to be a xmas prezzy.

    PS what are the 12-20 kenzaki like aswell.

    I've got the 6-12lb and 12-20lb Kenzaki's Barry. Pity you are out of action or you could have borrowed them

    The 6-12lb would probably be too light for the channel but ideal for down west. Handles 8-10oz of lead. "through" action so bends to the butt. Lovely light rod though.

    I had a Ling to just under 20lb in Weymouth on mine and it coped no problem

    12-20lb is still a light rod with a similar action but with a bit more "beef"

    Had Tope to 40lbs on my 6lb Kenzaki Baz. Puts a fair old bend in the rod but handles it. I Don"t have the 12/20 but have the 20/30 kenzaki as well. You"re more than welcome to try either when you"re up & about.

    I'm into a lot of light sport fishing and not heard of the kenzaki any links?

    At the mo i'm using the cono-flex 6 to 12lb trilogy.

    Thanx for the offer Ian. I dont know what to do, i can either have the 6-12 and the 12-20 kenzaki's. Or a MTI 15lb offshore, cheapest iv found the MTI is £125.
