Been offered one in p/ex for some coarse gear - all I know is that its a 13ft built on an IM7 blank.Don't know the model/variant concerned,but before I jump - are they any good ?

Also being offered an Abu Mag Elite in the deal.

Also any idea of the value of these 2 items (both in VGC) so I can guage if the deal is fair to me......

Thanks

I can't comment on the values. However, Gemini also made uptide rods which were expensive but ackowledged as being the VERY BEST QUALITY. They sold out and never reproduced the range. I never got the chance to try one sadly. If the beachcaster is in the same class, it will be somthing rather special.

Good reel as are all the Abu range, second hand value anywhere between 50 to 70.

Well.......saw the guy tonight.VERY impressed with the rod and both it and the reel are in excellent condition.Suffice to say swap done and both sides happy.

Just got to get a few bits now (and some time LOL !!) and ready to go.

However,having had a couple of days to think and remember when I beach fished last I did struggle with a multiplier due to a hand injury,and the Mag elite is also the CT version so no level wind which would be a nightmare for me. sad

Most annoying part is that the Gemini rod is most definitely rung for a multiplier so if I can't use the reel then I can't use the rod either....a bit of a quandry as to what to do to be honest confused Know that I would be able to get at least one,if not two FS rods and reels that would be perfectly adequate for me by selling them both.

Be patient and wait as another deal is bound to come along. No good buying stuff that you won't be comfortable with.

There is no overwhelming reason why you cannot use a FS on a rod with more rings than usual. Try it first.

Agreed but the butt ring is only 30mm and the rod only has coasters.As I am at the moment to test the theory I would have to buy a FS reel and a sliding reel seat.....

I thought you intend to use a FS anyway. I've seen a FS used with coasters, even if not ideal. And I don't think a 30mm ring is necessarily a problem. I have a rod, supposedly rung for FS, with a similar butt ring, which I use with both reel types.

well, I am giving the Gem to my son as I have bitten the bullet and bought a whole new set up (look for the angler with the shiny new gear on Hayling front!!)

It now means that I have a willing and keen fishing buddy into the bargain as I got him some gear at the same time so can't wait to get down there and hopefully get in amongst them...........
