Hi,having purchased a Grauvell Vertix Moonlight 14ft primarily for night fishing within the Solent, with a fixedspool/braid,I am considering a slightly stiffer, but but still match/ mixed tip Grauvell for use with a multiplier,but what is shown in their 2014 catalogue online,does not give much info.Many rods in UK do not now seem to be current.Note I had a Technos 4250, amazing rod, stiffer middle section than the Moonlight, SO light to hold BUT 1st trip tip ,Moonlight was it's replacement.
Any knowledge,thoughts others to consider Sub 150 uk pounds.

Know what you mean Roger and a while back I spent quite a bit of time hunting for a similar rod with a "bit of shove" in it but without breaking the bank having tried what Shakespeare were then offering and being a bit disappointed. I looked at the Penn Powerstick stuff at one point and decided that it wasn't much different to the Shakespeare offering. A friend managed to get a Daiwa Supercast for right on £150 and I was well impressed but I doubt if you will find one now for anywhere near that price (don't get a Sandstorm btw they are a bit too floppy at the tip). So I finished up with a pair of Abu Hellbenders (14ft) which have done me very well (they will take a basic pendulum cast) and if you hunt around you can still get them for sub £150 and they are made for a FS reel.

I have 2 SupercastX beach casters matched with 7HT reels they are excellent rods but I'm not sure if they still make them. I never liked the 14ft + rods
