I'd have to say the Reelsport Response for most scenarios, including kelp and rough ground, followed by the new Tip Tornado LD, great for clean beach and mixed ground.
bleedin' crabs.

Over the years like many I have tried dozens of rods, after my op light weight and easy casting became the main requirements and after some good advice I went for the Foo Fighter but I would be the first to admit it has limitations regarding ground conditions and casting weight.

About a month back I purchased the most expensive rod ever but if one requires a beach rod to cover all circumstances in my opinion you would find it hard to beat this rod.

The "Grauvell Duplicate Helical DH Surf TRE 4500" a bit of a mouthful but an awesome rod. Casting from 100gr to 250gr this super sensitive pure carbon rod is lighter than the Foo comes in three sections so it is easier to transport than the Foo but at 620 it is over three time the price of the Foo.

However it is equally at home casting either a fixed spool or multiplier over a surf beach, a kelp bed or rough ground. It has excellent bite detection and one would have thought it is as near perfection as one could get, but they have just introduced a new lighter model with the same performance at around 800.

Strangely I have been trying to locate them, Anglers Corner have sold the few they had and are awaiting the arrival of the new version.

A few of my shore angling friends have asked about them and I am currently searching on line and ended up back here, if I have any luck I will let you know.

Depends how much money you use to buy :lol:

The Grauvell Duplicate Helical DH Surf TRE 4500 is without doubt the best beachcaster I have ever purchased, would suit a surf beach and yet is more than capable of a bit of heavy rough fishing.
