Hi all.
I've just acquired a set of 13' carp rods and my current at least 10 year old holdall will take 12' rods max. I'm looking for something that will take at least 3 made up rods with room for bank sticks, and possibly a day shelter/brolly. If I can squeeze my rod pod in too it would be great. Don't really want to break the bank as I have 3 kids and Christmas is looming, but it has to be something that will last. I don't really go for any brand, I usually look at how easily I could break it, and how its made. Obviously I cant wander round tackle shops at the moment so if anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated. I was hoping to get something locally second hand but everything is either 12ft or wont take a 50mm butt ring.

Also, my youngest is after a rod and reel for Christmas but is intent on having something "same length as your little rod Dad" - (my 7'6" LRF rod). It would be used mostly at my local club match lake catching carp from 2-10lb. I was thinking of a Nash Dwarf 8' rod. Being selfish I fancy one myself so if he goes off fishing I have a nice addition to my collection. But, I'm thinking it would be useless if we decide to go after silvers in the river or similar. I'm hoping to spend <£70 for rod and reel as I want to get him a tackle box and a few bits too.

Thanks in advance!

Don't know about the carp stuff but I do enjoy my 8ft Middy White Knuckle CX feeder. Middy White Knuckle CX Feeder Rod good on small methods or bomb tactics

It's a very small and light blank. The line ratings are a bit silly it's very bendy Great fun. Can land a lump though.

Thanks for the reply, I hadnt thought about a little feeder rod, guess in my head I was being ambitious trying to think along the lines of a jack of all trades rod. The Nash rods go down to a 1lb test at 6foot, they aren't all broom handles. What the 3.5lb 6' rod feels like I cant even imagine though.

Depends how you want to fish I guess. Still seems heavy to me though for a match pool and silvers.
