I've got this rod and I think for the half price it's a barging. Having said that two things of caution. Casting weight is not described accurately IMHO. If you attach 35g lure you will have to be very careful casting. I think safe limit would be more around 25g. Second thing. For this type (casting weight and weight of the rod which is around 100g) I would prefer reel sit to be installed closer to bottom of the rod. It gives you more comfort while playing/twitching with your lures. Other then that great rod especially if you pay less than original price.
@Old kipper what do you need this rod for?
I my mind this is a great rod for big trout. Even in difficult river conditions like trees in the water and so on but I would not dare to target bigger spices especially in tough conditions. It's too light in my opinion.
For some reason we cant get Fenwick rods in the UK. Last one I bought was in Canada but I snapped it. Any recommended suppliers in Denmark?The Greys GR70 are all 4 piece and come in various lengths, I have the 10ft 15-35G, its a very nice rod.
Oh, forgot about the Fenwick Ironfeather, they're rather popular here in Denmark, I have a 9ft, 6-24G I think, might be a little soft for larger salmon, but a heavier 10 and 11ft are available.
Both are priced at like 150 UKP.

Not sure if shipping to the UK is possible, try to give them a call maybe, also there is the tax issue now.
Heard nothing but good things about the salmo seeker range. I like a 9ft spinning rod as i dont use heavy lures but you may be under gunned depending on where you are taking it.I am thinking of going for the salmo seeker 9ft has anyone on here used it and what do you think of it.
I`ve been looking around for a new 9ft rod for some time and the "seeker" has been the current rod of choice over the past few seasons with my fellow ADAA members, so I looked at John Norris and noticed the rod was reduced to £62.99 instead of £84.99 so I bought one Wednesday night and am due to get it later today.Heard nothing but good things about the salmo seeker range.
