Wsb looks to be trade only but I will give bison another look

I was surprised how good the telescopic is, they've come a long way from the crap available 15 years ago, more than good enough to use for family day trips flinging a few feathers about.
I couldn't get the range I wanted tho so am still looking for a longer rod, my 14ft 2 piece rods just aren't practical with the family in the car

Yes,they not a well known brand,something to do with Glasgow angling centre I believe..

My lad has had some stainless,and carbon bankware and it was ,is decent..

Another company worth looking at is WSB,tackle based down here ,think they do multipiece sea rods as well..

They any good? Never heard of the brand tbh.
I think I want 14ft, 3 piece would just work, 4 would be better.
I need to get a tripod that folds up too, a bit of drain pipe stabbed in the ground did the job with a loose drag but I missed being able to lift the rod right up on the shallow beach.

I'll have to stick some braid on one of my entohs, my emblem spod didn't sound too healthy bringing half an acre of kelp in

Looking for something cheapish I can fit in the boot for family trips. I'm looking at the Shakespeare agility 2 or a 14ft multi piece from decathlon.
Any other suggestions, preferably cheaper than the above, as I already have a couple of half decent beachcasters


Edit
Bought a Shakespeare telescopic which is surprisingly good, tempted to still get a 14ft 4 piece and maybe a 12ft 3piece bass rod and move my old ones on.
