    Have a look in the classifieds on here. One member is selling a set up for pike at this moment. The rod is a Bloke and you won't go far wrong with that.
    Ps - I have no connection to the vendor by the way.

    A 9ft rod in the 9/10 weight bracket should be ok for Pike, you have many options as a number of companies now make rods specifically designed for pike. You could also use a saltwater rod in the same weight categories mentioned and this would also be fine for pike. I would not go lighter than a 9wght though and if you are going to fish venues where very large fish may be encountered the 10weight would be a minimum as well. As for brands, well you would do well to get along to an outlet with some sort of casting facility and try a few, especially if you intend to spend a fair bit of money.
