 Hey guys, as title suggests I'm in the market for buying a 9-10ft tailor rod (sea bass rod) can anyone throw any ideas out there for me to consider? 

Cheers Luke

 Not to sure don't think I would want to spend much more than maybe $350ish, but it all depends on what comes up, I'll be wanting to use either a Stella 5000 or saltiga 4500.

Lures or bait

I have the starlo classic 1006 (Graphite)with Shimano Stradic 8000. Great for bait casting and lures. Use it up at quobba.

Video of it in action. Was using Diawa Saltist at quobba



I liitle light if you are using bottom rig for tailor depending on size of lead.

Cost me $120 at BCF


Luv it
