Light Beach Rod


Recommended Posts

G'day beachfishing raiders,

Have a work colleague who is retiring to the mid north coast in a few months. Have had it in the back of my mind that a nice light beach stick for bream/whiting fishing would be a fitting farewell gift after 34 years of service to the NSW Dept of Education! Over lunch yesterday he let slip that he was looking forward to purchasing just such a toy when he retires. However, he won't need too!!

Any advice on a good quality factory rod with the following specs:

1. Lightweight and suitable for bream/whiting off the beach - maybe 4-6kg rating?

2. 10-11 ft long

3. Suitable for a threadline reel

4. Two piece

Is there an off the shelf model to suit or will I need to get one built up. If so, any advice as to suitable blanks - a Magbream or something similar perhaps?

Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Get a nitro sniper, 10'6 long, 3-6 kg, 2 pcs.

That rod is so light, cast a mile and i believe its a graphite rod as well.

Very suitable for bream, drummer, blackfish and whiting off the beach and rocks.

Cost me $300, dont know about the price now.
