Close your eyes and buy it.. For the money, you won't find a better one. I had two, and both of them took plenty of fish. These are surf rods, one oZ and above and they will cast like a dream.

very good rod I have 10ft rated 3to6 I think it casts 2-3oz the best . The casting is good but its back bone is excellent .It may not be casting machine like st.corix and Lami (400$+ rods) .but its casting is great according to the price and power is excellent. All my surf fish have come on the spin fisher and will still come. santo used to load it with 50lb braid and go for Gt .
all anglers on this site have fished sucessfully with it even Sayeed bhai (lion heart) uses the 11ft version note the line and lure rating is same .
great rod but go for power !!

I use rod cover , Its a 5.5 feet long cover. Its bit difficult with bike but If one has a friend sitting on back seat will really help.

In my earlier days I used to carry long rods on the bike riding solo. Put the rod in a rod case ( could be a canvas or cloth case ) Tie one end to the rear pillion rider grab handle near the seat and the other end with another string on the crash guard at the front. tie up as suggested and check on your bike for the right balance and riding comfort.

I do the same way as Jeen described, but without the rod cover. Even once carried that way for 300 Kms.

Hi RJM buy a pair of shoe lace tie 1 end to the lefthand side of the crash guard and the orher to the sadi gurd that way even if you have a fall the rod would be safe.

hmmmmmm even better..... you can build something customized for your cycle to hold a few things like your rod, ice/tacklebox.

Again telescopic rods are not bad at all...... Lionheart has done some real good fishing with his telescopic rods and are easier to transport. For the motorcycles you can use strands of rope to tie your stuff and for a cycle it is possible to find a way to tie your rod in its holder, or you can always get a little creative and build something.

Regards,
Omesh
