    Default Looking for 6# 10' rod

    Hi all.

    I am in the market to finally upgrade my stillwater rod. Looking for a 10' 6# rod as I am doing a bit competition fishing and fishing from a float tube. Now the conundrum is that I have a limited budget, graciously allotted by my finance minister, and have not been able to cast as many rods as I would have liked.

    My options are: Stealth Infinity, Bomber or Magnum, Redington Voyant, TFO Pro, or Greys XF2.

    Have tried the Greys Comp special, but didn't get to grips with it. The TFO BVK is too soft for my liking. Want something faster than what I have now.

    If anyone has any experience with these rods or any suggestions, please let me know. Stillwater trials will be happening soon.

    Thanks in advance!

    hey bud

    cant go wrong with a 10 foot 6 bomber...
    all the JNR protea's and a few of the Snr boys use it (including myself)

    best all-round rod for boat comp fishing in my option , otherwise an infinity 6 or 7 weight also very popular with the guys

    hope this helps

    Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day
