I'm looking to buy a set of rods in the near future but after reading up, looking in the mags etc I now don't know what to go for.
I don't fish at long range at the moment but would like a rod that could chuck a little. I realise that there is no real all-round rod but would like something near this.

£500 ish to spend.
I was looking at 12' 23/4lb.
Hopefully to last a long time.

Any thoughts??

Nick Buss's X-lites are as good as they get and fit within your price, give him a call, if you want the number PM me..
Happy Carping

Or you could look at some of Mr Parkers Arbitrators, or the Tails-up rods, Nirvanas I think they're called.

both the new ESP rods are (very) pukka - depends what you like in the way of cosmetic finishes to blank - full duplon, etc, etc...
I've got the 12'9's and can't fault em.....
