  • The Strongest and Cheapest Feeder Rod out there?

    Ive seen a few on Ebay at £15 and some even cheaper and wonder what or if any of these are worth trying? Ive had 2 Garbo 9ft Rocket Pickers and had both the carrier sections smashed when hooked into creatures. I know you get what you pay for but there has to be one or two exceptions? Ive currently got a Middy the works 10ft and its the muts nuts and never let me down for just under £40 and will prob get another if No one can recommend something? I want a 9ft-10ft Rod with at least a 6lb line rating.

      I had one of those avanti multi length rods, had being the operative word. Caught a snag gave it a couple of tugs and the top section exploded into 5 pieces.
      You get what you pay for, if theres a chance of something big I would avoid.
      Just got me a Shimano catana BX for £30 feels lovely but yet to give it a good go.

                          theres nothing close to the garbolino in that price range in my opinion ive got 2 10ft pickers and never had problems although cant comment on the 9ft as i have never had one. ive also had the shimano forcemaster but the garbolino blinds it.
