<font color='#0000FF'>Can anyone recommend a decnt spinning rod which is rung for use with a mulitiplier, I know that pike rods can be used but I want something more purpose built. Any suggestions, the price isnt too much of a problem.</font>

<font color='#000000'>Hi fishing_fanatic,

I tried to find one a few years ago to use with my Mag Elite, but to no avail. I have been using a Daiwa spinning rod (3ozs.)for over 2 years now with my Mag and have had no problems.

Best of luck.

Cheers

Drew</font>

<font color='#000000'>All of my (non-trolling) saltwater rods are based on Loomis GL3 blanks. &nbsp;Something like the 3-piece (7&#39;) travel one rated for 10 to 20lb line is probably ideal. &nbsp;I&#39;ve got one rigged for spinning and one rigged for casting - with a Shimano 400, without the level wind. &nbsp;

That will cast lightish lures perfectly. &nbsp;But I&#39;ve also had 100lb plus fish on the rig - Pacific Sailfish and Tarpon.</font>

<font color='#000000'>Loomis are American rods which, in this country, are sold through Airflo and their agents. &nbsp;They&#39;ve only recently taken over the dealership for the UK - that until quite recently used to be handled through an Irish company - hence there&#39;s nothing on their web site. &nbsp;But you can contact them for details, through their web site, at http://www.bvg-airflo.co.uk or by &#39;phone - 01874 612612.

In the past though either a friend used to source blanks through that Irish company and customise them for me with butt winds. &nbsp;Or I&#39;d buy them in the &#39;States.

There details of the full range of Loomis rods on their web site - http://www.gloomis.com/. &nbsp;If you want to go the same route as me though you can source blanks direct through the &#39;States - http://www.gloomis.com/publish....rs.html

Hope that helps.
