 After some suggestions fellars , want to get my kids a rod reel combo  each for chasing dermersals,  their  aged around 10 so dont want anything  to heavy or expensive  but something  that can handle  a decent  fish any ideas ??

going for $109 (choice of several different sizes) I'd prob get my ten year old the 6ft 10-15kg penn mariner rod mathched to an 850 penn reel and load with 24kg braid will catch most demersals off perth good cheap combo I think

 probably a stupid question for the kids stuff but are you looking at overhead or eggbeater. 

i know the penn 330gti overheads arent too bad at a decent price, they can handle just about anything we have had on them .

Personally would go a Sienna

Personally would go a Sienna 4000(on sale at BCF 39.99)  if it's their first setup (barring kiddy combos)   and a rod to match.  nice and light.  

These little reels can handle a LOT.  mine I've had for years and has caught pinkies to 90ish cms  (also great for catching whiting and squid)

Punch well above their weight and they will love using them

 Thanks for the replies  fellars , not too sure whether  a over head would be better or eggbeater i used to have one of those penn 330s bloody good little reel those but i do these days prefer  eggbeaters so might have to  look at some of them mentioned   cheers lads
