The Exage spinning rods are only rated to cast 60g and struggle to control Mahseer in the mid 20's.

There are heavier travel spinning rods available with both Greys and Wynchwood offering rods rated to cast 100g.

As said, there are travel uptiders about (I have a Fladden Maximus) and they are OK but it always suprises me that they are so popular because the soft tip and broomhandle midsection and butt arn't ideal in a fish playing tool - they're designed for casting power with big leads in a confined space.

If you're looking for a rod with lots of power that will still bend in a forgiving curve, have a look at some of the European catfish rods or alternativly at some of the rods built for heavy jigging up in the Norwegian Fjords. Check out Askari for the jig rods.

You could be right about the new generation of uptides Steve,(still have a bee up my bonnet here), but the older generation Twin Power 10610 are something else. They are not so tipsy, and the guides are more low profile. When put in a "bust a gut"situation, they bend all the way through, rather than just the top section. It also casts a fair distance. I had just one cast with the NEXAVE, and did not find it in any way a better caster than its father the Twin Power.

I would assume that an uptide as the name suggests can also double up for a good boat rod for medium size sea fish, but you are right, there are so many options out there. Even a good carp rod can be adapted, by guide changes etc for use with a multiplier.

If i were where you are, i would get a blank that takes my fancy and suits the water conditions i know exist, and work on building my own rod with the exact guides, handle and reel seat etc that i would want. I dare say this would give an angler infinately more pleasure to fish with, than buying one off the shelf, that is built for some other application in mind.

Thanks for all the help so far, everyone. I'll have a look around, quite interested in the Wychwood rods.

Steve.

If you decide to look at the Grey's option, have a look on the Harris site.
It's not sold as a travel rod (so no hard case is suplied) but the Greys Grx Spin (3 piece, 9', casting 30 - 100g) is on special at the moment.
Lifetime guarantee too.

There's also a FOx rod out there with a similar specification but I can't remember what it's called.

Thanks for that, Ken.
By the way, would October be alright for a spinning trip to the Severn?

Bit late for the Severn mate. The chub are already switching off and dropping back into deeper water where they're all but impossible to catch on lures.
I had a short two hour session today and ony managed three chub and one little pike - the same session a month ago and I would have had 20 or thirty fish minimum.
If you're going to be in the area in october, there is some free water on the Stour where it runs through Kidderminster where you'd have a good chance of some lure caught chub in october. There are also some quality perch and trout but strangely, no pike.
Best of all, it's one of those rivers that can be flooded after heavy rain on thursday and be back in perfect condition by saturday morming.

So much for the Grey's option.
I broke mine on the second outing !

I might have put it down to a one off manufacturing fault but it seems that sudden breakages are anything but unknown.

Sadly, I have to withdraw the recomendation and hope that nobody on here has placed an order.

Hi Steve,

You might want to have a look at these rods also. I just came across these this afternoon. They have a International/travel rods section. One apparently for mahseer/Nile perch.


Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

How did it happen Ken? Hope you are taking the boys to task ?

Hi Steve!
Those Wychwood rods look quite dependable and then Chris seems pretty confident they can handle a 100 pound fish.
Although i tend not to trust fishing rods with more than 1 joint, it looks like technology has changed, and such rods are more reliably built these days.
Do let us know how it goes.
Regards
Owen

Hi Fred, haven't received any PM yet!

Probably won't spend too long in Goa as malvalli is where my heart is. But pass on details anyway, as plenty of mates go to Goa.

A mate has just ordered the Snowbee "Tarpon Rod" and should get it by early next week.
If anyone is interested, I can post up his impressions when it arrives and/or after his upcomming trip to South Africa where the rod should get a workout.
I also have some correspondance that I've had with Snowbee and if anyone wants to read this, get in touch and I'll PM it to you.

Steve its amazing what a little marketing and spice adds to us making these earth shattering decisions on what rod and where .. Just FYI my cobia ( 97 llbs ) was caught on a locally made Florida rod called Capt harrys 10/30 lbs 50 lb braid that i dont know the name of .. . no fighting belt and loads of luck ..... gimme luck anyday instead of all the fancy names and metrics ... ill go for luck and intuition anyday ..
