i have recently been thinking of getting another spinning rod, but are the tenryu range as good as they make out . after all they are very expensive and i dont no if i could justify spending 400 quid on a spinning rod. when i would,nt spend that sort of money on a beach rod, what rod,s is every one else using . i have a mike ladle sure spin and it,s done what i want, but it,s alway,s nice to have some specialist tackle . probably would,nt catch any more fish but maybe nicer to use .
