Thanks for all the advice, it's fast becoming my favourite as it feels great & it's perfect for the top of Port Phillip....haven't caught anything huge on it yet, but I'm extremely confident it could.


Roughly how much is it for a rod?


$150 anywhere for the rod if you tell them to price match (makes you wonder what sort of mark ups these guys have...recommended retail is about $230).....got the reel for $150 from Southern Sports Fishing (old model)
Armadale angling their selling the older model $129 only difference i can tell is fuji alconite guides new model fuji kr guides if your interested ask for the owner when i went the other week they only had a couple of models on the rack but when i told him he what i was after went out the back and came out with a handfull of different model just a heads up very helpfull


What is the difference between the guides?

Bigger guides so lead er rs knot runs through better steeve?

yes the older models have micro guides even on some of the heavier sticks, the newer models have bit bigger guides so the knots dont catch on it.
