  1. I have to agree with this, easily up there with one of the best rods I have purchased. Caught plenty of squid from the jetty and boat. Very sensitive and light and can cast a mile!
  2. Hi guys, I’m in the market for a new combo to be used mostly for snapper fishing on the lower Yorke Peninsula. It will be used for snapper fishing in deepish water; keeping in mind we get the odd stingray and gummy shark. My price limit is around the $500-$600 range. Open to all suggestions, Cheers in advance.
  3. After just having spent a couple of days down on the Yorke peninsular at Wool Bay, and spending majority of that time bait fishing for whiting and snapper it made me wonder if fiberglass or graphite rods are better for bait fishing. I was happy bait fishing for whiting I caught 12 in the space of 10 minutes. The next day we went snapper fishing which was a bit difficult having to use a heavy sinker with my 3-6kg samaki but it was ok. That was until I hooked a gummy shark with my 2500 stradic and 10lb braid. It made me think if I had an equivalent rod but fiberglass would have given me a better chance of pulling the gummy in, as I would be able to put more weight onto the shark, also with a fiberglass rod it would be easier to use even heavier sinkers. So when it comes to bait fishing what do you guys use I still love the pure feel of my graphite rod and how light it is, maybe for bait fishing composite rods are the way to go with there fiberglass tips. However for my next rod (heavier than 3-6kg) I like the look of the gomoku storm rods. Cheers in advanced.
