    Explorer Procast, value for money and they come in sets.

    Talk to Terry at Fishing Owl, he can set you up. 011 894 4348

    morning pillieg,

    it depends on where you're going to fishing and what you're going to be fishing for.

    Default Procast

    thanks will look into the procast, is that a good enough to keep as a second rod if my dad decides he's not into it?

    Yip, my brother fishes with one on the Vaal every weekend, so I dont see why it can't double as a second rod.

    yeh, the procast is ok, but i'd have a look at the explorer classic series, some of the kingfisher rods are also pretty good beginner rods, as are the stealth rods. i don't think you'll go wrong with any of those.

    there was another thread on the kingfisher rods. i'll see if i can find it for you

    I think the Stealth rods are great value for money and a great backup rod for yourself. I recon a 5/6 weight can be used for most types of fishing.

    i agree with honda2 a 5/6 will cover a large section of your fishing requirements
    cheers
