Hi Guys,

I am in process of building up my sea tackle. I have a Diawa Emcast 6000 size spinning reel which is very heavy and not suitable for spinning so I am thinking of using it as a surf casting reel and want to pair it up with a surf cast rod.

So I need you folks help in selecting a rod from following options.

1. SHAKESPEARS UGLY STIK BIG WATER - 9 foot- MH Power - Line rating 12-30 -
2. Berkeley Pro Select - 8 Foot - MH Power - Line Rating 17-40 (I have read online reviews of this rod which are not very encouraging.)
3. Abu Garcia Premium - 8 Foot - MH Power - Line Rating 10-25
4. Abu Garcia tournament- 8 Foot - H power - Line Rating 17-40
5. Abu Garcia tournament- 9 Foot - H power - Line Rating 17-40
6. Abu Garcia tournament- 10 Foot - H power - Line Rating 17-40
7. Abu Garcia Nitrous - 9 Foot- MH Power - Line rating 10-30

I am a complete newbie when it comes to Sea Fishing and don't know what length and line rating should I go for. I am not even sure what species I will be targeting while at surf so please keep the species found at INDIAN coastal line in mind while recommending.

Please pour in your review of above rods if you have one.

Thanks in advance guys.

-Inder

I also agree with Christopher. for surf fishing you need a longer rod anything above 12ft & up to 14 ft rods though guys in some parts of the world use rods up 18ft length for surf fishing,
I have - one okuma 4.5mtrs and two rods of Berkely Cherrywood series 4.2 mtrs all of them telescopic as they are easy to carry on two wheelers as well as in four wheelers
I would always bet my money on the berkely cherrywood 500 or 5000 series ;-) Second to none in Quality, strength and perfomance [smilie=coolup.gif]

Ps Did you check with Bops ?? maybe has what you want !!

Thanks Chris and Lionheart,

Now that is interesting. I wonder what other surf anglers think about the rod length. Bops also suggested Tsunami. BTW I may be getting Tsumami after all as one friend is travelling to US in July but the longest they have is 11ft.

Now I am more confused..

[smilie=damn.gif] God work in mysterious ways :roll: .

I was just checking shipping at Amazon and accidently clicked on single click checkout :Yep I am stupid:

Order is placed and I can’t even cancel the order but thank god it’s a Tsunami. I messed up the length though, its 10 footer.

Thinking of using this as a Mahseer rod so now I have to find a spinning reel for this rod and another 11-12 footer rod for my Diawa emcast :D

Now can somebody please suggest a spinning reel [smilie=grinz.gif]
