    I'm thinking of buying a long quiver tip rod and have been told that Sea Angler Magazine did a review of the Grauvell Teknos Surf Z 4500 in the April issue (issue 465) of Sea Angler magazine. Is there any fellow angler out there willing to scan and e-mail me a copy of the review?

    Any comments good or bad from anyone owning one of these rods would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the info but the rod I'm looking at is the 'Z' version 4500 which comes with a standard last section and a quiver tip end section into which you can insert one of 3 quiver tips of varying test curves.

    According to the Grauvell site the rod is rated for 3.5 oz to 7.5oz so the rod has a wide range of uses from a long standard beachcaster down to a very sensitive match rod.

    The basic 4500 looks to be a good range.
