Not selling one I promise! lol these are fantastic rods very versatile and sporting, excellent for lighter weights, some guys even use them for plugging!

Tip Tornado Lite (taken from century website)

The Lite has benefited from upgrades to durability and other visible enhancements however the design essentially stays the same as the original. If you want a rod that will cast 5 ozs overhead from the rocks or blast 4 ozs pendulum style from the shore this is the rod for you. Tolerant of conditions except the heaviest ground. Perhaps you want a rod that is ideal for schooling bass, the solitary lunker or even a super slim scratching rod to win a match: don’t forget heavy float fishing, spinning or dead baiting – it’s the master of these too. Some have said it’s the best Estuary rod available. The limits are undefined. The complex construction, born out of years of Tip Tornado heritage means that it is not only practical but also a pleasure to use. Derived from a SAMF Finals Winner and is a truly versatile 3-5oz-specialist sporting rod.

Couldn't find the same info on the CCC LD on their website? Anyone know if they still make this rod? Anyway there are more of a progressive action but still very light, powerful, sporting rod capable of casting a long way.

I've got an immaculate tip tornado lite, casts 80-150 grams, and sits within the other criteria :whistling
Greys supro in classifieds ticks all the boxes:whistling

TT Lite seems like it could be a contender, i want it for smuts, spurries, thornies and big bass if i get them, i want it to be on its limits, some rods take out the sport tbh

sorry buddy, in all honesty the tip tornado lite is perfect for your needs. There is a better rod out there by a long way, it's the zziplex profile. It simply is stunning, but double the budget and then some I'm afraid. You'll get good sport from the lite, it'll be easy to touch ledger for bass with in the surf, give good sport on smuts, so a very capable rod.
Couldn't resist the punt, saw the post and thought :g: :idea: :yeah:

AFAW Surf rod, 3-5oz and ticks all your requirements. I have two and will never sell them. Good sporting rod that can put a bait out a good distance in the right hands.

If I had to own just one rod for clear ground fishing then this would be it.

This rod was a revelation to me.

TT lite fantastic rod, if you want smutts bass ray etc it will do it no problem at all, good rod for learning pendulum on IMO, also goes well with a fixed spool if you want to sit on a beach and put feathers way out for some mackerel, or use 4 oz and jelly worms spinnig in deep tidal water its perfect, the BZ is a good bass rod, the TT isnt a bass rod its more powerful, theres the TT ultralight thats as light as you think the TT lites going to be if that makes sense, it does bounce a bit when its rough but has better bite detection.
