20lb Boat outfit - Help wanted

425 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  muffer
A friend of mine has decided he wants a 6 foot 20lb class boat outfit. His girlfriend want to buy it for him as a present, combined Bday and xmas. I get the feeling she wants to spend a few quid. She wants my recommendation. I couldnt bring myself to use a six foot rod, except breaming with a yank trigger caster. So, could you guys who boat fish, if your girlfriend wanted to buy you a 20lb outfit, rod and reel, put your choices in order of preference. If you could come up with three desired combi's, I can pass on the info!!

Thanks for your help

the grey rods are an excellent choice. dont think, they do them in 6ft thou .ring mick williams on fire fox charters for a good deal[and advice]
if my wife was buying me a present id go for a multi tip

ps ugly sticks (not the 1 my ex girlfriend was beaten with) are shorter but lack the nice action of the longer rods
the SHIMANO TLD15 !!!!!!!! everytime leverdrag, hardwearing looks great!!! (just dont take the ******* apart:help:) not that i ever have mind:oops:
I assume he will be fishing braid?

waveblaster evo 12/20 or 20/30
daiwa kenzaki braid 12/20 or 20/30
MTI 20/40 (not used it but everybody who has says it is a good rod)

Penn 320LD
charter special 2000
TLD 15

6ft is ok for stand up sticks and conger rods, but go for 7-7ft6 in length for general downtide and 8-8ft6 for drifting
good shout!!!!!!!:notworthy
