Hi there manne, I am interested in buying a new 3pc rock/surf rod. Do any of u know what the differance is between a 350 and a 400 ,is it the length?

Also any suggestions on make and model of a rod, my budget is around R1000.Will be using a daiwa 30slh on this rod and target shad, kob,grunter etc.

For that reel and budget i would suggest the Purglas 350/2 3 piece ! same action as the 400/2, but six inches shorter !
I've got the 400/2 and the 350/3 both lovely rods ! I use a daiwa sl 50sh on the 400 and a saltiga 40 on the 350.
Paid R1050 for my 350

Something like that ! There is line and weight classses for every rod. Somewhere on the Purglas site is a tabel with all the detail

350/2 is good rod for the reel, you are going to use, i am going for the same 350/2 but i am going to use have it built with a trigger grip and shrink tube grips. i plan on using 0.40mm line with a daiwa 30 shv-k. 5 ounce sinkers are perfect for this set up. the rod is 121ft long and the 400/2 is 14ft.

Hi HK

I use a Blue Marlin G2 Light Surf (14ft) 2-piece with my Sl30, Very good set-up for Spoons, Drift etc. This is my set-up for Grunter, Shad, Blacktail, etc.

It's a full graphite Rod and not badly priced at all.

I bought a Shimano exage 12 foot , it comes with 3 tips. I fished with it this weekend , and was impressed with the rod not bad for the price.
Thank u guys for the input much appreciated.

nice choice hk, those rods are nice. i am still thinking about my combo. i was advised by a close friend of mine to try the new blue marlin blanks, apparently very light rods with lots of pulling power. a 12ft built the way i want it is going to cost about R1200. that with one tip throwing 4-5 ounce sinkers. it a bit expensive, i think i am going to sleep on it for a while. need to get a reel as well

Fish Eagle, where are you situated. Blue marlin Rods here in East London have many variable sizes and and their rods are good, good enough for them to make the assasins blanks for Bnarry Wheram, so the technology is there. Give Jose Maritanos a call.

i got a blade so i know their quality is good. just looking at price vs performance, i think a 12ft in t53 blank that can throw 4 and 5 oz sinkers is what i am looking for.

i bought a loomis custom (the one with the trigger winch and the stainless butt) a few months ago - cost me under a grand and i have already pulled a few serious fish with it. in december i hooked a blacktip at the Duckpond at Kei Mouth and pulled that stick to breaking point for almost 3 1/2 hours with no ill effects. Good value for money i'd say.

no weeds, where did you purchase the custom loomis from, and what does the rod come with.

I bought it at Strand Sports in the Strand. It comes with 3 tips and a cloth bag for under R900 and for another R100 bucks you get a rod tube. I'm sure they are available all over, i know a mate of mine in Port Alfred is also stocking them.
