Just wondering if anybody can recommend a rod+reel for about 35-40 (rod) and 20-30 (reel).

I've been looking at the Shakespeare xt mach 2, has anyone by any chance own or used one?

All advice will be appreciated.
Cheers.

THESE RODS ARE GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY,PUT IT WITH A SHIMANO EXAGE 4000 OR OKUMO PAY BACK AND YOU SHOULD BE OK.

Have a look at the team daiwa/daiwa ones. I'm sure they're around 40. And I know that the shimano forceaster is 40 - 50.
Also I have my eye on the garbolino oicker rod. Great price!

I've got original mach 2 reels in 040 size.
http://www.lathams-fishing.co.uk/shakespeare-mach-2-040-front-drag-reel-pid5419.html Reduced even more now. 17.99 [:T]

Really smooth and good winding power.
The xt's are supposed to be better.




Leeda carp match rods are good value.I've got a couple of the twin tip rods and a 13ft waggler.
If the feeder rods are of the same quality they should be just the job.

I bought a Shaky XT mach 2 a few weeks ago to replace my ancient Omni quiver.
Lovely little rod IMO. Comes with 4 tips, 2 carbon and 2 glass.
For 35 you can't go far wrong.
Highly recommended. [:T]
