Star of the show for me was the Tronix Pro LRF rod. Although not a brand new item, it was the first time I have got to waggle and flex the little 0.5-7g rated, TronixPro HTO Rockfish UL. There’s one rating that sets this rod apart from the masses of LRF rods now available – the price! You can now get this more-than-adequate LRF rod for just £29.99. That’s a mainstream price and should give everyone an affordable route into light rock fishing and fun. I think we’ll look back in 12 months time and be very thankful that George Cunningham, Managing Director of Tronix had the foresight to get these rods created – it will bring a load of kids and adults into the sport. Demand currently outstrips supply – a good sign of the things to come :0)

In summary, good blank, length and rating to start out. The blank is held back a little by the weight of the affordable guides used but that’s understandable at this price and will hopefully give the owner a reason to upgrade when the bug bites. Fittings and finish are respectable. Price is amazing! Comes highly recommended from me.
