Zeikel rods

Hi Guys,

Has anyone on here used any of their rods?

A mate sent me a link via crackbook and I've not seen or heard of them.


Any feed back would be good, I am considering one of their ultra light overhead jig rods for a Ryoga C1012.

 Ji Jimmy, I bought their overhead ultra light and use it down South Australia for snapper, I love it, the brand is certainly doing some good things at the moment, good to see an Auussie company  giving it a shake up I say.  James.

 hve a light jig spin .5-1pe. Handles well above its weight. Used it in classic w 2kg fairyfloss and caught cpl nice longtails with it. 

Def no need to fork out a shitload for rods anymore. These are cheap strong and the guys at zeikel are ontoit with testing their gear properly. Will be getting the travel combo nxt popping n interchangeable jig!

 hi guys 

I ended up getting the ultra light overhead.  I wasn't too happy with the reel seat as as it made a crack when i tightened it  and a small piece of plastic came flying out.  I fished with it and the blank seemed pertty good.  Brought up a 4ft whaler from 60m on 15lb braid.

I let the guys at zeikel know about the reel seat and they offered to replace or refund, so happy  about that.  I ended up getting the rod replaced so good to see they stand by their gear.

Now i just need to give it a good work out.

I think they are about to release a reel soon.
