    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone can offer me some advice.

    I want to buy my Dad a good Rod for his 60th Birthday. It will be used in a Snapper surfcasting competition next year. I’ll be looking at spending about $300?

    If anyone can give me an idea of what I should be looking at I would really appreciate it!

    I have heard few bad but quite a few good things said about the Okuma Solaris surf rods. They cost around $220-250.

    Other options would be the Okuma Predator which is a slightly softer rod which is less capabel of casting heavier sinkers. Or the Okuma Axeon which is stiffer then the Solaris. All three rods are simalar in price.

    If you got the money, the Killwell Powerplay SLX is suppose to be a top rod. I believe they cost around $400

    Yeah,

    I am thinking of spending more money on the Rod, so I can get a really good one.

    I’ll have a look at some of the website with Shops and Look at the rods suggested by you all!

    Thanks
