    50mm Butt Guides

    Thanks for the info, I will bear this in mind when looking for the rods. Now knowing that 50mm butt guides are no use to my style of fishing, are there any rods just under the £100 mark, that have 40mm butt rings that you can recommend?
  2. Hi, I am new to carp fishing and fish a small venue. Whilst looking for new tackle to upgrade to I found both the Daiwa powermesh, 12ft 2.75lb, and the Shimano tx2's also 12ft and 2.75 tc. I favoured the Daiwa powermesh until I read that it had 50mm Butt guides. Bearing in mind the furthest I would need to cast is roughly 50yards, the bigger guides would be of no use. I was wondering -because of the 50mm Butt Guides- if i would have to pair the rod with a big pit reel or a "mini" big pit? Or could i use a normal freespool reel? Or should I just get the Shimano tx2's and pair it with a 6000 or 10000 reel for the close in fishing and be worry free?
