Hi all,

Looking at purchasing the mentioned rod for mixed ground and the Bristol Channel, please share any thoughts.

Thanks

Mark

AFAW rods dont seem to be very fashionable at the mo but the Tourney Rock is a Brilliant rod- plenty powerful to cast a lead and bait a long way but also a very good fishing tip so it wont pull the lead out on a strong tide- really regret selling mine- if you can get one for a decent price go for it. Only down side is the guides will shatter if you drop the rod so be careful with it - especially if you're fishing rock marks on the channel.

i got mine for 250 on special offer - worth every penny

If Shambrook will do it for you at that price I'd jump at it

I've only had problems with the tip eye shattering on mine. Been using a pair for a few years and the only reason they are not popular is they don't say Zziplex on the label. Many people see to want to be seen using the right rods rather than judging them on the abilities.
