I have a Fox Challenger Beach Match Rod...I have to admit when I got it (bought a job lot of beach rods off ebay as I wanted the Century which was in the lot) I thought it would be absolute rubbish as I was only aware of them making carp puddle fishing kit...I was very rod, it is excellent both in quality and performance. So if the Diablo is anything like then go for it...

Hi mate i got 1 to test last winter. Its just like the Daiwa Tournament XS 142M but a bit heavier. Its 13ft 6in and casts upto 8oz. Bite ditection is ok. It will handle any rough ground with ease. The only thing i didn't like was the ceap fuji copies. Apart from that it was ok

Can't comment on that particular rod but I have a Fox Envoy and it's fab.

Great tip with excellent bite detection whilst sitting stable in the wind and in the right hands (not mine though !! lol) it will send a bait out a bloody long way.
