2) Shimano Technium Specialist 12ft 2 peice quiver tip top joint. to us as a light feeder for commercials&rivers max line is 8lbs

3)Shimano Antares Specialist 12ft 2 peice this is progressive rod that is well capapable of bully ing fish out snag's or when power is needed 1.6 TC i'm going to use it as a heavy feeder max line rating is 8lbs .

Also need advice want to put some braid on the spare spool to fish for bream

The reels i'm using on the Shimano rods will be Shimano Aero 6010 bait runners so spools are interchangeable.

The experience of being there is enough, catching is a bonus.
