The shimano Exage STC range cover everything from very light spinning up to carp type rods
I've carried the lightest one with me round the world for years and throw it at any available species
I'd hope that it is still the same quality as the ones I bought many years ago, sometime manufacturers do change materials and factories.

+1 for the Shimano Exage STC. They're a bit spendy - but buy once, cry once...Cheers mate, it looks great.
Can you use that fresh and sea fishing? What would be the minimal kit you’d take to accompany the rod if you were trying to survive for a week or two and catch your own food?
