    Default Looking for new Surf Rods

    Hey, I'm looking for suggestions on a couple of new rods for surf fishing. I have a spinning reel (Spinfisher 6500) and a conventional (Avet 5.3 SX/MC). I think I'm looking for a Medium to Medium heavy 8-10 foot rod to throw 2-4 oz and bait....if I'm off there, please let me know. I fish in SC 2-3 times a year (Charleston & Hilton Head) and occasionally make a trip to FL. I'd like to keep it at or under $200 for each.

    Thanks for the reply ICM, I ended up going with a 10' Star Paraflex for the conventional setup with the Avet, based on rec. from a rep at Tackle Direct. Fished it last week down in HHI and I was really happy with it. It handled some small (3'-5') sharks well, as well as all the blues and gaftops we caught on it.
