Andy I`ve got two Penn Surfblasters (I think) 13ft fixed spool, and I love them, if you`re anywhere near Chichester please feel free to take them out and use them to see what you think, it's about time that someone who knew what they were doing used them.

thanks chaps,have a penn superflex already,it was blown over in the wind & then the top of the rod broke off,top 2 eyes.so i am a bit concerned that its not that strong,or was it just bad luuck?? I have looked around to try & buy the top section on its own to no avail. Would get it repaired if i could find somebody to do it!!! I will keep looking,thanks for your help

You could have a look at the shakespeare Salt? I have had a couple now for the last couple of years and they seem to be very good rods. The write up's on them seem pretty good too.

yeah totally agree, I've got two & they are superb, you might one for around 65-70 quid.

Shakey Salt hard to beat. Fantastic quality for the price. My 13' MX seems tough too, given that it's had the same hamfisted treatment as my AFAW clubman, but I've replaced 3 rings on the clubman.

Me too
if the full Salt beachcaster is as good as the Salt Flattie which only costs about £40 then it must be very good in that price range.
