Just new to fishing, I was wondering what spinning rod someone would recommend that's decent but won't break the bank I wouldn't want to spend over a £100 on it.

I've got this spinning rod https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07SZ58W3V?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

And been finding it way to light and fragile I caught a dog fish and a flattie on it this morning and it was absolutely terrifying as looked like my rod was going to snap.

I'd like something durable and strong, 9-10ft long maybe? I fish from a jetty that points out to sea, fishing with 15lb braided line and a 50lb shock leader generally like to fish with a Dexter wedge, feathers and lures.

Want I mainly want to catch is mackerel and Bass

That rod your using is no way suitable for feathers and a weight, a lure of say 20gm max could be used, no need for the shock leader if your just using a lure as well

I'm Assuming that you didn't catch the above on a lure! What weight lead are you casting?
Unless you spend a lot on a telescopic rod, they will nearly always be floppy!

I was recommended an okuma epixor for light lure work/freelining and although I haven't used it much I've had some decent mullet on it and it seemed to handle them pretty well. Can pick them up for under £60 at the minute. I have the 9ft 5-25g but they do them at a range of different sizes.

If you like the fish with 40g+ dexter wedges and lures then for a budget rod a nomura kanji might be worth a look at. Can even do some light ledgering working with 2oz weights or use a float with it. I picked one up for £63 and use it for the above and haven't had any problems with it yet.

Like with anything, you get what you pay for. I'm sure for under £100 there are better choices out there but if you're looking for budget rods which perform relatively well imo for the money then these two might be worth a look at.

see if you can pick up a daiwa whisker old rod now but superb for sea fishing use, used them for cod on the boat over rough ground at slack water, failing that a penn powergraph, same action and power (poor man's daiwa ) but really every bit as good

This years 2021 Shimano grapplers are beautiful rods to use and good value. They have gone from the traditional style to the skinnier lighter style of some of the high priced manufacturers.
