Which LBG rod?

I want to buy an LBG rod to suit a Penn senator 114h2. I'll be using 50lb tufline braid. I want the rod to be 24kg  plus and atleast 8ft long. Is a metal reel seat a must? Dont want rollers. Not looking to spend a fortune.


Will be used for ballooning, sharks and in the future, trips to quobba.

What do you guys recommend?

 Gary Howard LBG is 9ft and rated at 24kg, or the live fibre LBG, think the LF comes with a roller tip and metal reel seat which the GH doesnt, I have the GH in a spin but they do a OH, I love it, sure there is other guys on the forum that have the LF. Both rods cost about the same at around $300. Hope this helps.      Paul.

Thanks I'll keep an eye out fora second hand one of them as they're slightly more then I want to spend. I can't look after them, 2 mins fishing and they're all scratched up!


Are Mako rods any good? bloke in the tackle shop tried to sell me a combo.
