Advice please Gentlemen!
I want to re-rig after 10 years of using dated stuff. Money no problem. Want to buy quality stuff. Fishing from bass boat. What is the suggestion regarding the following:
Worming rod and reel
Crank/stick bait rod and reel
Spinning rod and reel - really necessary?
Lines - mono/braid-ish/fluorocarbon

And where is the best place to buy (Cape Town and Jhb)

Thx!
Go fishing now...!!

Give olbigmouth.com a shot. Best prices and they deliver nationwide. If you are close to the shop I would suggest popping in and getting some hands on advice from Malcolm (plasticman).

Contact Malcolm if you have any questions. Contact numbers are on the site.

Well Baas Bass, whatever your choice of equipment would be, it would be wise to buy the best you can afford. Rather shop around for the best prices on a particular item that downgrading your choice.
I have some advice, and these are what I use and will highly reccomend it:
1. for worming rod I use G.Loomis NRX as well as Kistler Z-Bone - Both awesome
2. For Cranking rod I would suggets the Quantum KVD rod.
3. For spinning rods I can suggest Shimano Cumara or the Bass Proshops carbonlites.
As for reels, worming Shimano Core 50's; Cranking - Quantum tour KVD 5:1 ratio and finally either EXO spinning or Shimano spinning reels.
Line is confined to fluorocarbon on all my setups exept the spinning reel that is loaded with braid and then a fluoro leader. I use Mono for topwater situations only, like poppers etc.
All the best with the shopping, I pertinantly did not give model numbers on rods as it will be a personal prefference.

+1 - I personally use a Falcon Bucoo spinning rod and have a Casting Bucoo on its way. Awesome rods, very light and sensitive. All my rods thusfar (which is not a lot :blue-lol: ) I also pair up with Shimano. They last forever.

Make sure you take a look at the ALX rods as well. Full range of casting and spinning options vailable.

Got my first one recently and love how light and sensitive it is. I have quite a few Powell rods as well but unfortunately they are not available in South Africa any more.

I would however rate my ALX higher than the Powell with both of them at a similar price point.

Falcons are good too.

How do you get to see what is available from bass.co.za?
Is it perhaps easier to email Steve than to try the website?

My advice, borrow setups from other fishermen or put setups together in the tackle shop, see what you like and buy that. If you spending real money you cant really go wrong. Most tackle used on the US pro circuit is good

Hi,
Myself and Roy have a couple of the ALX rods. If you would like to pop in by me and view/cast in my backyard, I don't mind and I'm sure Roy wouldn't either.

As for the reels I use Quantum's, I just like them and haven't had a problem.
The Shimano's and Abu reels are great too.

Everyone has there own personal preference when it comes to rods and reels. The only way is to actually have a setup in your hands and feel it for yourself.
