If you’re after a rod that would suit a side-cast reel, the 13-feet 6-inch, 5-10 kilo line-rating Alvey Surf Rod would be ideal. It’s great for targeting Australian salmon, tailor and mulloway off the beach, and would perform just as well targeting Australian salmon, tailor, mulloway, snapper, kingfish, bonito and drummer off the rocks.
This high grade fibreglass 2-piece blank has quality fittings and a nice tip action. It’ll allow you to cast baits as small as half pilchards, cunje, large blue tailed prawns and red crabs. The rod comes complete with a large 40mm-high mount striper guide to ensure a long-distance cast.
This is a quality surf rod with great casting action, and would match up nicely with either a model 650, 6500 or 700 series Alvey reel.
