I've been fishing for 7 years or so now and currently use a pair of Penn INXS rods 4-8oz. I bought them second hand from a friend and they have done their job.
The reason that i have started this thread is that i am going to buy a new pair of beach rods and with so many on the market, it is hard to know what to choose. The rod i am looking to buy must be able to cope with almost any kind of fishing from clean ground right up to some mixed or rough ground. I have around £250 to spend on each rod and could really use some suggestions.
Im thinking of buying the Daiwa 'tournament x' 13' (TNXS130M) but there are not many reviews on it and i know no one who owns one.

Please post any suggestions or opinions as this would really help,

Look in the classifieds, as I am selling a pair of red metals and FS reels, they may suit some of the requirements you are looking for.

i bought a pair of c3ld's in march - no reason to regret that decision at all - coped admirably with anything from clean beach to some ruff stuff with 30lb straight through - they throw a rig a long way and feel so light in the hand - great value. :1a:

Actually, i am selling a Penn Powerstick beachcaster and some other tackle that i do not use to pay for it. I'm not spending £500 either as i am going to buy one rod this year and then another one to match next year for christmas.

Not what your looking for but my best all round rod is a 7' fibre glass boat rod. Have used it for spinning and bait fishing from shore and boat, freshwater and sea. Reel seat is big enough to hold a sea reel, used it from piers aswell. Copes with just about everything you throw at it. Two piece so fits nicely in the boot and can carry it about with me. Only use it if I haven't got another rod with me.

why 2 of the same, if u expect varied fishing?

IMHO - think about going for an overlapped pair - ie 2 close but different actions - then for specialist marks / match pegs you have the proper tool (sometimes its nice to fish one rod)

if you have to go for an alrounder pair - century CM is hard to beat - but it can overgun light surf - and can struggle a bit in true hard ground/big tide/monster baits scenarios ( never had a scenario were it wouldn't cope - but some rare times its not fully at home)
