I will do, its so hard to chose haha, makes it worse you cant pick it up in any shopsHave a look at the Leeda concept gt whip. A nice, good value whip but I can only see it available at 3 meters on ebay at the moment.
Garbolino and Sensas do some very nice entry level whips we'll within your budget. You don't really need to spend a shed load anyway to enjoy this method of fishing. Let us know what you go with. Enjoy!
