Howzit guys, just to let you all know what I ended pairing up with. Thanks for the recommendation.

Although I would have liked a 7/9ft Penn battalion, Penn was not at the expo, but this will be bought at a later stage for a complete different setup I am looking at for light spinning at the estuary.

Anyway I ended up ordering an Exceller 11ft 2piece (cheapie rod for R1200).
Paired it up with a BG5000, outstanding reel and personally think it is the best value for money spinning reel.
I think this will be a lekker entry level medium spinning setup.

Reason I chose the 11ft Exceller is that I can replace it with a 13ft Blue Marlin at a later stage to use with my BG5000 if I ever want to tackle Crackers and then I have a proper grinder setup as well as a medium spinning setup.

Pairing my BG5000 with chartreuse JBraid 30 pounds.

Shot for the input guys!
