Anyfish Anywhere 6 and bait
Looking a for a new rod to fish the bristol channel. At the moment I use a tip tornado sport and an ancient zziplex. But the zziplex has seen better days and has started to crack around the joint so i need to replace it.
Been looking and the Anyfish Anywhere 6 and bait and seems a nice rod for the money. Has anyone used this rod?
Iv read that the eyes are pretty rubbish and will probebly need replacing. Apart from that whats it like?
I'll be using it on mixed to rough ground off the rocks I usualy get snagged and have to cope with massive amounts of weed and very strong tides on the south wales coast.
Also does anyone else recommend any other rods?

Hi,I managed to source a minter for not very much,for fishing rough ground and cliffs,and tbh I dont think for the cash you can do much better.......it is quite a powerful rod,and has done some very good distances on the field,slim,with a thick walled blank that will easily take the rough and tumble of rough ground work.
It has factory built Fuji B N O G rings,which are ok,if you give it a clean down after a trip they will be fine,I have used mine on some pretty rough stuff in rain and wind in the past months ,and apart from the usual scuffs the rings and whippings are fine.
Mine is a 13ft multi rod.....I have fitted x wrap for better grip,and a carbon screw reel fitting because I dont trust coasters,and it compares pretty favourably with other more expensive rods imo.
There must be something ok about them,because you dont see them in the classified ads very often.

I'll second what Dave has said above^^^. They'll cope with your needs just fine. The worry you had about the rings pertains to the first generation, which admittedly had crap rings (replaced 2 of mine after just 2 sessions), but the latest ones with Fujis are great. I dont have one, but did have the 1st run of the 6nbait, and it was a great rod then, so with quality rings it can only be better.
Now....if Sonik only made the SK3 with Fujis.....I'd recommend that one instead. Saying that though, the SK3s crap eyes are a bit better IMO than the 6nBaits crap eyes, lol.If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong

I agree with Dave's comment. I really like my 6 'n' bait I use it most places but mostly for really rough stuff like hussing, used it a few times in the brizzol channel and it does exactly what it says on the tin. obviously there's going to be amazing other rods about but its all down to your opinion.

No reason mate I just fancy a change.

If you use them very often you`ll end up with spigot wear problems in my experience.

6 & Bait
Cracking rods for the money mate. I've got a pair of the 14 footers, Casts 6oz plus a whole squid no prob. I probably fish some of the same marks you intend it for, from Sker up to Cardiff. Handles the rough stuff great (stout, newton etc). The action of them reminds me of a conoflex nemesis, but with a a stiffer tip.
A mate of mine has the 13 footer, (bought mine after trying his), excellent again. Which model you go for I think depends on your preferd reel position. 14' best with a low reel, 13 will do either, 12 up.
My only gripe is that you can't use a reducer because the butt isn't designed for one. The fuji eyes are ok in my opinion, no eyes are indestructable.
