get the best you can afford as you will inevitably be wanting a better rod soon otherwise

I will be up to see Matty in the next fortnight or maybe the first weekend in April. No doubt I will change my mind a thousand times in the shop, but eventualy I will walk out with some new kit, thats for sure.

Nothing against gerrys but if i was you i would go second hand and you will get better quality for the same money. A lot of used tackle and kit has had so little use its like new anyway just a load cheaper. Theres always rods and reels on here for sale and from decent lads

Your'e spot on there Chris,you will always get better gear cheaper if secondhand.
Sometimes though it's nice to treat yourself to a new rod.
All my rods were second hand,chums on AA,car boots etc.
Never had a new rod so I treated myself to a brand new Drennan Red Range feeder rod.
Okay it was only 55 quid but nice to walk out of the shop with it. :thumb:
Oh love it by the way :love:

Finally took the plunge and opted for the Sunset Kremnika Combo. Staff at Gerry's were excellent and only too happy to help. The new shop looks great too. Could have spent a fortune but had the kids with me so coudnt be in there too long!

I took it to fleetwood yesterday to see how it coped with a 40mph blow on! Managed a few smal whiting but very pleased with the rod. Up to 5 bar gate next Sunday for a proper go (wind permitting)

Hows the mersey fishing?? Havent been since Feb.
