Thanks, I already own 2 Daiwas SL20/30SH. The 20 is used for Salmon surf angling, the 30 normal surfcasting used in conjunction with a prokat with adjustable reel seat, not ideal but does the trick. If you are not familiar with the way in which we fish for salmon in the surf down here, try to get to the rivermouth of one of Canterburys main rivers whilst youre in the South Is if time allows, great fun, its like a who can cast the longest tournament all day with overhead reels for miles! lol.
As for the Century, a very nice rod but the current budget wont quite stretch that far at the mo, figured it was out of my price range as soon as I heard the brand name.
As always though your input is much appreciated.
