Hi all,
Been thinking of getting a rod for light sea float fishing for mullet and with a quiver option built in for light ledgering / spinning.
Is there a course / carp /sea rod that will cover these options............or should I dig in my pockets and buy 2 rods...:yucky:
Your help is appreciated.

Don't know what sort of budget your on mate, but put AVON QUIVER in google, that might fit the bill :idea: :idea:

Veals do a mullet rod by Imax. It looks quite good.

i often find that the all in one rods are jack of all trades, master of non. i would go for 2 seperate and different rods.

I bought a twenty-five quid, 12ft 2.5lb test curve carp rod the other day and it's great for bunging float rigs & Dexter Wedges about - with tidy casting distance. At that price I ain't too bothered about it getting bashed on the rock-marks I fish - just can't wait till I have a 5lb Ballan on the end LOL!

Cheers - John

Daiwa twin tip. Great for spinning....bass or mullet. Change the tip for a really nice 12 foot mullet rod.

A really superb outfit for mullet fishing.

I have a Masterline Avon rod that has a quiver tip section with 3 different weights of tip, plus an extension that means it can be used at 11 and 13 foot lengths. I've landed carp to 12-15lb with it, so it'll handle mullet etc pretty well. Cost me £65 a couple of years ago. It's well built and the rings are nice and solid, unlike some of the coarse rods so it should take the punishment if needs be.
