Hi all,

I am coming back to beach fishing after a gap of 20 years. I was lucky enough to fish thru. the late 60's and early 70's and i suspect we shall never see the likes of that period again.
I am confused however at the bewidering changes in tackle since i packed up in the mid 80's. I have been in several tackle shops local to me and waggeled several rods-i cannot believe how light and slim they are.Reels seem pretty much the same and it did my ego good to note that ABU6500's and 7000's are still about. What happened to Mitchell 602 AP's? i allways rated them.
My question is what rod to go for? I don't want the hassle of building my own rods again so it will have to be off the shelf. The last off the shelf I fished with were ABU 464's and 484's.I like the look of the ABU Suveran SX and RX anybody have any experience of them? I will be fishing the Bristol Channel area. Any suggestions would be gratefully recieved.
