    Fishing tackle is just that. I just use it. No point in having it if you are too scared of scratching it etc.

    I only take the Hardy tackle out to venues where it isn't going to get knocked about. The rest of my current tackle is in regular use.

    Nearly finished my garage clearance I have boxes and boxes of stuff to find new homes for though. We started the loft tonight what an over facing job.

    As for fishing tackle, I have some old stuff that I bought new over 30 years ago but it's still serviceable. It can go for the right price.
    I have a Greyflex 10' and two Greys Platinum x 10' rods. I haven't used them in years I'm planning to get rid shortly. Why two Platinum xs one is a spare in case the other breaks.

    I have been getting my bait casting rods from China. They just do not do decent ultra/light rods in the UK at reasonable prices. You just have to be patient with delivery.

    9ft 20gm to 100gm may be useful for spinning for bass. I don't have any spinning reels though.
    I could always get one though I suppose. Plenty in China LOL.
    I changed over to low profile bait caster reels.

    What about a Shimano Exage 4000 FA with spare spool? Goes well with the Shimano Aerocast SAC30ML 20gm-100gm. 9ft
    The other spinning rod is also a Shimano Aerocast, 24ML 5gm-20gm. 8ft with Shimano Exage 3000 MRA with spare spool or Shimano Exage 2500 RA with spare spool.
    Unfortunately I've no bait casting reels.

    Let me have a think Ged. I have a Shimano Exage 1000FD. Nice reel but it does not like getting wet and not sure if it could stand up to saltwater abuse. If mine it gets wet it develops a dead spot. Same thing with my mates too. I'll check them out.
