    yeap, baitcasting rods are mainly build to suit baitcasting reels (multipliers) due to its inverted backbone. You can check out the stores in beach road, there are plenty there. Just my 2 cents :D

    Sport fishing is more expensive then buying fish. One lure can feed you for lunch and dinner.

    If you find it expensive, then start off with a spinning set. it'll bring the budget down. But remember one thing, what you get is what you paid for.. you pay peanuts, you're gonna get monkeys.

    50?? go buy surecatch or 3 triangle (dunno still got this brand or not) or pioneer. All these rods bloody cheap..

    Cheap rod also can land nice fish too. Not really must buy branded to catch good fish especially fishing streams and shore when luring or light baiting.

    I've used a 3' spinning tica rod and lands 2kg grouper in long kau few 1 month back.

    Singapore alot of long kaus, most of the saltwater long kau got unexpected catch.

    Well, they can definitely land fish. But a better made rod may improve the fishing experience for you too, for example by reducing the amount of stress your arm may feel while fishing (a lighter, more powerful rod does help in this way)

    After fishing so many years, customed rods or branded rods will give the angler a better sense of confident level and perhaps let the angler be abit lazy.

    Anyway these are my take.
