Smith Dragonbait LX
Dragonbait LX Light Fast Spinning
This was a nice little find on the Marryat stand. Smith’s Dragonbait LX Light Fast Spinning. I’m drawn to any 7g rods with abbreviated handles currently. Really suits the majority of my fishing.

Stunning looking rod. I guess you either love or hate the bling. Subtle enough I think?

Fast, one-piece blank rated 2 to 7g. A tad short for me at 183cm (6ft and a bit). Weighs in at 101g which is okay but not super light. The bit I can’t understand is the choice of Alconite guides. Really do see a step up in performance with SiC on UL rods if you’re throwing tiny rigs.

Still, a beautiful rod that will make lots of people happy, no doubt.

RRP is €259 (about 190 quid)
