Hi, can anyone tell me if Steadfast is a good course fishing rod brand?  or if it is not what should i be looking for as a novice with aspirations!?  Many thanks.  Looking at using rods for carp, tench, etc.

Every tackle company in the world makes the odd dog of a rod & I suspect that Steadfast is no different. Was a time when they made some highly regarded rods but I suspect that today's Steadfast tackle is no better & no worse than any other budget gear that you might buy in Argos for example. I don't think that you can generalise when you ask 'does a company make good rods'.

I recommend pdq rods mine has served me well for 30 years
I though steadfast went down the drain when phleuger and dam did decades ago ,probably a trademark recreation of chinese tat to stir memories in grey bearded old guys into buying their gear LOL
I judge decent tackle by never having to buy newer tackle (wink)

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste
