Why not an Avon rod?
It is a proven design that has been around for years and for a spinner they just need a little off the tip.
I used such a rod for years and landed fish to well over 20lbs on it, the only modification being an inch off the tip.
Plenty of low price 2nd hand Avons around, the green blank John Wilson (which also comes with quiver tip) being one of the best and usually priced below £50.
I'm looking for a sub £100 10' #7 rod.
Don't like using expensive tackle at night because I tend to be quite rough on it.
Any suggestions for cheaper workhorse rods would be gratefully received
Thanks in advance.
Merry Xmas everyone.
