Real nice rod! Hope I get to see it an action. Wish this bloody weather sorts itself out as have not gone spinning in weeks now. If i manage to one day master this sport a bit better I will surely invest in such a rod. Since I mainly use lures that range from 15 grams to 40 grams what set-up would be suggested?

Well I made this rod with small sub 15g jigs and silicone lures in mind. Perfect for Kahli and Sawrell locally, and Seabass in Sicily.

Anyway, rod is always up for sale anyway  Grin or similar to it if anyone wants different colours.
