    Default Affordable 12wt

    Hello Everyone

    What make of rod would you recommend for salt water applications, I mean specifically a 12 wt rod. I don’t want to spend thousands as I am probably only going to use this rod once....

    Any suggestions?

    Shammers I'm in the same boat as you at the moment, for a 12 and a 10. I spoke to Hussein at Ganis this morning, he has a few options for under R1500.

    Hi Julian

    Why not look at the MHX blanks/kits. The highest they go is a 9'0 #10 unfortunately, but the entire kit is only $168.50. It's a 4-piece blank.

    Don't buy a rod. Lend one from a friend if it's only a once off trip

    I got just the rod for you!!!! I will give you one of my 80lb Stand Up Tuna rods.
    Perfect for swimming live baits!!! Let mamma show her love for you and swim your bait in. If she splashes a lot, you always have the chance of hooking a decent shark, if she can drop the hook in its mouth and swim away quick enough. Live Bait's survival and mortality depends on how stong a swimmer she is.

    Now this same setup can be used with great success on the streams but here mamma will have to swim with great stealth as she explores the streams. She should give you a Hardy of a time as you Shilton yourself with laughter.

    On a serious note...When do you want to go????
