Hi,

If you want really cheap, I've seen the 12FT Fladden 'Powerstik' 2pc with a fladden reel and line for £20 before now, I often use one of these as a second rod (but with a multiplier), they are not a bad action, though I found the eyes were a bit naff, ended up whipping a set of Fuji shock ring eyes on instead. One thing I have noticed with 3pc rods, is that they tend to be a bit whippy, making bite detection harder, and in a strong current or high winds, the tip just dances around making bite detection near impossible.

Regards A..

Hi John,

Stay away from Fladden!!!!!! You have been warned. Save up a little longer and buy a cheap Daiwa, Abu or Shimano. You only get what you pay for, buy cheap and you get cheap rubbish.

Cheers

Got a Ron Thompson Supreme uptider and it's been absolutely fine mind you the first one I bought didn't suvive an encounter with a car door before I even got it wet. Also got a Shakespeare Mentor beachcaster cost me £30 and although it ain't gonna win any long distance casting awards it's been perfectly adequate for my needs.
