  • Xplorer Classic II 5/6//4/5 vs Stealth Magnum 9054

    Hi, im looking for a new rod. I will be fishing for Trout in streams and Yellowfish in the Cederberg. I am looking at the Xplorer Classic II 9/5 ad 4/5 and the Stealth Magnum 9054. The magnum is R2100 and the xplorer is R1600. Any advice or recommendations will be much appreciated.

      Between the 2 I'd take the stealth, prefer it over the xplorer.

      i knew it, did you notice the gap in between both rods you querried, damn, it would cost you fortune if you'd started with the classic to end up with magnum

    I looked at the dams in the Vaal river system.
    The end of the winter is approaching and the levels for all the dams are almost full

    Jasper, great to see or hear from you again. Like Graham said, I also still have one of your knives, it's a treasured item that is for sure.
