QUALITY- is the tackle well made.
POURPOSE - for what type of fishing and species
EXPECTATIONS - what is expected from the tackle?
Wychwood Reaction 3lb carp rod.
Priced around £30-£40, this rod ticks all my boxes. Weighing only a few ponds it is light as a feather for its size. Full carbon slim blanks with quality lined eyes, and spigot joints
At 12ft in length it breaks down into two 6ft sections. Pike into double figures, and 8lb mirror carp have been played on this rod, without any worries and concerns, a very good purchase indeed.
Shimano ST6000RA Baitrunner
To say it only has 2 Ball-bearings it feels as if it had 5. very smooth and well made............at £40 from Argos i cannot argue, I have seen the priced at £60!! BUT the only let down is that the reel does not have a spare spool (I use mono and braid as mainline) If Shimano added a spare spool to the reel i think they would be ACE!! The spool can be brought but for an extra tenner off eBay
Well, £40+£30=£70 am I correct? i believe that is a price tag that is not braking the bank. especially for decent tackle.
