a little limited because of cash lol, but nevertheless im looking for another couple of cheaper beach rods. im stuck between the 12' Penn Firetip surf & reel combo & the Daiwa Longbeam & reel combo. anyone got any advice on which of these two may be better?? the reel looks more substantial on the Daiwa kit...?? just wondering, any advice would be great cheers Josh!!

Personally I would avoid the longbeams at all costs: I know a few people who've had them, and most of the rods ended up broken, they all snapped in the same place during casting. I do know a couple of people who still have them but the rod seems floppy with no real backbone. Go for the sandstorm or surfbreaker, or the older TDSS, never heard of any of these breaking.

josh if you shop around and find what you want, then try spotty dog tackle as they have recently looked after me really well and will probably beat most prices. (thats not a pitch, they just given me outstanding service so well worth a mention)
