Hiya

Fancy trying out a bit of stalking but don't want to shell out for a 'name' rod at this point. Would be great to keep a rod and stalking bucket in the car to cope with those 'urges'

Askari have got a few rods that might fit the bill:
Balzer Warrior Tm-6 Tele 60, 9 foot for 22
Balzer Wildcat Tele 140 10 foot for 15
Cormoran Blue Star Tele 150 9-foot for 34

Anyone bought one of these? or can you suggest alternatives around the same price?

Personally I avoid telescopics as they seem to have a poor action and break easily. Then again, maybe I haven't tried the good ones, lol.

Instead I use a Shakespeare 4 piece 9' Expedition spin, which is around 52 including a protective tube. Swap the tip ring for a threaded one and you have a very versatile and transportable rod.

I've also got an 4 piece 11' Silver Creek 10 - 60 gms spinning rod when that extra length comes in handy!! This is about 60, but no tube. Silver Creek do 7, 8, 9 and 10 foot versions too starting at about 30.

You can get all this stuff mail order from Mullarkey's Direct on 01283 566777.

You didn't say what fish or waters though, so I have assumed not carp. If it is carp, you can get what look like good 4-piece and 5 piece carp rods.

I have pro perfomance Graphite Stalker 275 lovely 11,footer cannot fault it only cost 55 ultra light as well. Serial No ROS0001,

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.
