    Due to work commitments in the new year, to avoid sitting in hotel bars I want to take my gear and try blanking at different marks for abit. Is there a half decent travel beachcaster I can get for under £50 that I can get in the boot of a mondeo sized car, or do I need to work out how to get my normal rods in and keep them out of sight?

    Thanks in advance for any tips. SB

    There is a Ron Thompson 11ft 6in travel beach rod on the market for about £55 from Tacklebargains.co.uk. Might be worth a look. I have a TF Gear Outlander which cost me nearly twice that, and it is like fishing with a tree trunk. The other decent one I have seen is the Shimano Nexave Surf 5-piece, but that I think is also up around the £90 mark.

    Hi Stubby - I bought a Shakespeare Agility EXP in 11ft6in for about £35 a couple of months back. It comes in 5 parts and in a cordura tube, nice and compact. I've only used it a couple of times, but seems a nice weight but the reel seat is a little higher up the rod than I was used to but now have the hang of casting it. I think I have the pre-2016 model, eventually confirmed as the TOG guides and not ZOG.

    Have a look at the Shakespeare Agility Surf 12' 9" at around £65 or the Penn Rampage 2 (13') currently £75 from Veals.

    These are three piece rods which makes transporting much easier. I have both these rods and they will fit across the back seats of a Mk1 Freelander no problem. I would therefore guess even if the don't fit in the boot of a Mondeo, they they would probably fit width ways on the floor behind the front seats, where they would be mostly out of sight...
