New Barra Baitcaster

After a new barra baitcaster... around 4-8kg range, 5'4" to 5'8" sort of length.

Having trouble finding what I'm looking for... most seem to be 6'2" and above.

Any suggestions?

 G'day Jay, long time no see. Hope your well. I was using a pacific composite 6-8 kg braid buster, that was 5'8". That was a great Barra rod, Reel was a 200 Calcutta. Haven't seen much like that around anymore though.

 Hi Dale,

Yeah I don't post much here these days but I do pop in from time to time! Thanks for the suggestion, I did find a pflueger that would probably suit but wanted to know if there was much else around. All the live fibres that I used to use don't seem to be getting made any more :/
