Hi all, just sat at home bored so thought i'd say i have just brought a greys triplex 16ft beachcaster and thought i'd share my findings.

As i cast off the ground or a fishing pendulum (half swing sort of thing) i dont get on with all these broomsticks alot of anglers are using these days, i just find them to hard to compress thus making my casting worse so opted for this 16ft rod as it was ment to suit my casting style. I thing this rod is the best rod for the money for people of similar casting styles. Its a three piece rod thats very tippy with the power coming more in the middle and butt sections, Its easy to compress very well with a 5oz sinker in off the ground style and keeps baits in tack very well. The length of the rod suits the reel down the butt and it makes casting almost effortless. All in all its a great tool that i find ideal for most of our local beaches 9/10

I also have a greys pz match which is ideal for scraching and a tip tornado match

Anyone else share info on tackle/rods they use ?????

(sorry if i bored u)

I've stuck with Diawa mid range stuff for years and still find the super-cast x has the potential to cast a lot further than I can sling a lead. Decent price and good enough for most beaches. I've always believed you should be getting the max from the gear you have before upgrading, just buying a more expensive rod won't buy you more yards of cast. Spend the dosh on some casting lessons if you want more yards.

ekyone, couldn't agree more thats why i cant understand these idiots who spend £300+++ on these casting rods(following the fasion), it just makes them worse???

Dont get me wrong in the right hans some of these rods are awsome and even if you do have the technique etc its not much fun reeling in a double shot of pout on a broom stick

Alex,

A double shot of Pout on a broomstick and 200+yds of line back onto a 7HT I'm knackered thinking about it, even worse a double shot of Pout and 15lb of weed  or what!!!

When I lived on the east coast, casting was an issue and I used to practice(with a fibre glass Moonraker) and could manage about 120yds with a baited rig. Now I live in the sunny south the only time I try and cast as far as I can is fishing for Rays on Browndown, otherwise 60-90yds seems enough.

Any one else got a view on distance fishing round here?

ekyone, i agree anything up to the 90yrd mark covers most marks round here, But then it is a handy tool to have when your in a match fishing 3 baits clipped into a force 6!!!
