Looked at some in a Tackle shop last year at just over £120 - picked one up and couldn't believe how good it felt - certainly looked an excellent rod at an excellent price. I'm comparing with top quality stuff as well, not good budget stuff.Still some excellent bargains to had on the - now discontinued - IMAX rods. Saw a brand new 5-6 oz for £135 last week, and you could probably bargain that down a bit more. I've always thought they were a lot of rod for the money.
Exactly what I was thinking!Odd recommendations, two different rods, one's good, the other's....well, lets just say there are "mixed" opinions on the sandstorm...a marmite rod.
