I think you need to try each individual model and not simply a manufacturer or range even. For example many years ago the Redstart 9056 was an absolutely fantastic rod. It retailed for 100USD. However some of the other Redstart rods were dogs.

I’ve been considering sourcing some budget rods for friends here in Malaysia who can’t afford a HT. A compete outfit for 100-150USD. I know it’s possible.

Cheers, Paul
Have a look at a Cortland Fairlplay outfit Paul. (How crucial is a heavy duty reel for your fishing?)

Thanks Magnus. The reel is not important at all. I’ll drop Cortland a line later.

Cheers, Paul
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.
