Bugger though u might price match for 239$ and buy something else for 60 bucks equall 300$ and then get online 80$ off....bugger
my initial plan was to get emeraldas x for $249, buy couple lures to make it to $300 and get $80 disc.
Sephia BB is $299.99 at BCF, so its like $220 after the $80 disc, cheaper than Anaconda.

But still can't decide which one to get. Spec wise Sephia bb seems better, but stiff, i like it a bit whippy which is the emeraldas. Hard to judge without actually holding them. Curse this lockdown.
Ah well...
Southern sportsfishing have the sephia bb rod,s for $210 walk in price but stock for all store,s anaconda,bcf is low due to the current covid he had to order the rod i wanted did not take long

Thanks for the info. I wish I lived closer to them, would definitely visit often.
Hopefully this lockdown won't be extended and I'll give southern sportfishing a visit.

Hey Sebb maybe not to much help but i have five squid rod,s including the solpara which is a good rod but my favorite is the emeraldas mx 86l but that,s a bit more than you want to spend .Recently purchased the sephia bb 89m should get them for around $210 have not used it yet but feel,s good and look,s great went for the 89 cause i,m landbased and want to compare daiwa to shimano .For the kayak if that is your plan the sephia 80ml felt really good as reviewed in the recent hooked up mag
Thanks dazz.
Yeah ideally is to have the MX but it's over my budget.

I'm going to use it landbased, so yeah you're right, the longer rod be better.
Let me know when you've used it.
Hey Sebb went for a cast today (i live within 5km) the sephia 89m is stiffer than my emeraldas ml which is what i expected and why i bought the rod very happy with the purchase .Now if you like something whippy a bit more like the emeraldas the sephia 8ft will be what your looking for in there range
