Englesman - When are you going mate? I can put you in touch with someone who could sort you out with gear locally.... he's not in town right now, but I can get in touch with him.

Otherwise Angling Africa in Pretoria is the Carpenter agent in SA... Carpenter are about the best sticks you can get for chasing GT... not sure what models they have, but for Bassas I'd be looking at the Super Popping, or Wild Violence series....

They also have a couple Ripple Fishers, but at R 9000 a rod, I reckon thats just crazy!!!

What reel are you wanting to put on it?

No Dave, You are going nowhere in May. You have local fishing comps to concentrate on and need to get gov approval for those.
You are not going anywhere near Bassa without me nor the Silverback.
How about your plugging stick?

the guy from hook ,line & jeep is richard - he is a sealine member (can't recall his sealine name) but you could probably get hold of him through basil manning in durban. for plugging & popping ,in the show, they mostly use a custom built rod by basil manning / assasin which is in effect just the top two sections of thier heavy 3-piece surf rods.
for an awesome rod also check out the ocean revolution rods available through jig star africa.

KP11 - What rod are they trying to sell you at AA? If it's the one made in NZ and Kirk is the builder, you'll have a fine rod!

Do they still stock Composite Development rods in SA; the Graph-Cast 3 and 4 are awesome 2-piece rods for GT's?

MArk - Unfrtunately not mate... CD or whoever was bringing them in cocked up an order of the Alcocks a couple years back apparently, which left them with a bunch of unuseable blanks they had to pay for which kinda soured the relationship unfortunately....

Pity, they are lovely shorebased sticks...

Thats a bummer, i dont think that you get better value for money than those blanks.

I want to get hold of one of those new composite 2 piece blanks from Kil when they come out; who is going to be his agent in SA?

No fixed dates yet mate, Kil is on his way to Korea this weekend to do some more work with the factoryon further developing teh blanks and rods...
The stuff they have comme out with so far is pretty mind blowing, and Kil has taken a good amount of thought with him from us, with regards to consideration for the South African market, which is great...

But we might still be looking at a few months before they are released.

Look at a Smith WRC 80P-35 as an all round not too expensive popping rod. These things are awesome, nowhere near the costs of a Carpenter or RippleFisher but will chuck anything from 125-160g fishing PE8 and are more than capable of pulling 40kg GTs.

Not sure who has them but a google search should show something.

Buy once and buy well :-)

Really is a superb starter rod.

Too right Sharpie, the 80P is an amazing and forgiving wand....
They are pretty thin on the ground though these days....
