If you are looking for a universal fishing rod that is unfailing in a variety of fishing situations and don’t want to pay too much for it, then I can recommend the Pelagic Superstick auctioned and sold on eBay by Premium Fishing Auctions. I bought a pink one for my partner 12 months ago at the bargain price of 99 cents and it is awesome. Its action is light enough to fish for Bream, Whiting and Flathead yet strong enough to handle the most tackle torturous runs by Spanish Mackerel, Giant Trevelly and Sharks; it will bend double without a problem. This rod is lightweight, it can be held comfortably all day if necessary and yet, it surprises many people by the large size fish it can handle. The blank goes right down through the handle and when you hook onto the big ones you can even feel the handle bend, giving you a feeling of direct contact with the fish, making it brilliant to “play” the fish. It feels like it is about to break, but won’t, it is rated at 5 to 10kg. This 6ft. rod can be used from a boat easily, from shore or jetty, cast lures or fish with live and dead bait. At present it has a cheap and light weight 6000 size baitrunner reel on it filled with 30lb braid line as it is mainly used to chase mackerel. You can buy one of these beauties with confidence, but expect the colour to fade from the sun and to eventually replace the tip with a fuji style one; it shouldn’t let you down for quite some time.
