Hi Guys,

My first post on this forum, I've been reading on for many years now and found lots of helpful advice & info, since then I have become quiet addicted to squid/egi fishing since they've really been hot up through to the northern parts of port phillip bay, so I think its about time to purchase an outfit specifically for it!

First of all I plan to be fishing land based, off both rocks & piers so looking for something with a bit of length, I'd say minimum 8'3" but something thats going tobe allround, I currently use a 10'6" med-light rod which is a bit too long.

My maximum spend would be about $250 AUD for the rod and also $250 AUD for the reel, I am mainly looking for JDM (japanese) gear, but also open to localrecommendations :)


Rods shortlisted (that I can find online at a decent price):

Megabass Caiyen XX - CXX-86L - EGI Size: 2.5-4.0 - Line: 0.5-1.0 (P.E) - Rod Weight: 132g - http://www.megabass....oducts/cxx-86l/
Megabass Caiyen XX - CXX-83M - EGI Size: 2.5-4.5 - Line: 0.6-1.2 (P.E) - Rod Weight: 123g - http://www.megabass....oducts/cxx-83m/


Graphiteleader Calmaretti Nuovo Quattro - http://www.olympic-c...maretti-Quattro

GONCQS-832M-T - EGI Size: 2.0-3.5 - Line: 0.4-1.0 (P.E) - Rod Weight: 109g
GONCQS-862M-T - EGI Size: 2.0-3.5 - Line: 0.4-1.0 (P.E) - Rod Weight: 110g
GONCQS-892ML-T - EGI Size: 2.0-3.5 - Line: 0.4-1.0 (P.E) - Rod Weight: 112g


Reels:

Daiwa Luvias - LV 2506 - Weight: 205g - PE 0.8-130, 1-100 - Max Drag: 3kg - http://www.daiwafish...au/luvias_reel/

Shimano Sephia CI4+ - C3000S (shallow spool) / C3000SDH (shallow spool, dual handle) - Weight: 190g - PE 0.6-200、0.8-150、1-110 - Max Drag: 9kg - http://fishing.shima...oduct/reel/3053

Shimano Exsence CI4+ - C3000M (medium spool) - Weight: 195g - PE 0.8-300、1-220、1.2-150、1.5-135 - Max Drag: 9kg - http://fishing.shima...oduct/reel/3133

please note: (for those who are unaware) the C3000 models have a 2500 size body!


I was leaning towards the Luvias & the Megabass rod in the 8'6" length.

Really appreciate any advice guys, cheers!
