if youre in N.Wales, get yourself along to Colwyn Bay Pier shop, some bargains at the moment ie everything half price (except bait and ready made rigs).

I have two possibles for you.
I bought a shakespeare salt MPV 2-4 oz 10ft beachcaster for £50 and a shakespeare targa 4-6oz 12 foot rod with multiplier for £50 as well.
I get good casts from the pier or beach with both and they have good bite detection too.
The MPV I use two ways as a spinning rod with a fixed spool and as a beachcaster with either the targa reel or a shimano multiplier I just bought.
The MPV is in my opinion the best all rounder it handles floats and spinners well, will cast a two ounce bass rig 80 yards plus with ease.
A clipped down pulley rig on a 3oz lead will cast 100+ yards easily.
the rings are all carbide lined and the reel seat is excellent (it's also set pretty well for casting).
an extra £30 would get you a decent fixed spool or a reasonable multi if they are your thing.
hope it helps

forgot to say these are both carbon rods too so really good value on top of everything else.

second that.......or if u could stretch to £150 or around that u can get some decent rods for £100 and then either a good fixed spool for £50 or a second hand but still good multiplier for the same.......
