  • Where to get prawning rods

    Hey guys. Anyone knows where can I get a good quality prawning rod? Other than fishing buddy, are there any other places that sells prawn rods? Thanks.

      yep. I'm looking for good quality types. Not those like "Sure Catch" but something like.. Pokkee? An uncle told me that brand was good. Do you have any names of the shops that sells those? If not where to find them would be nice. Many thanks (:

        choosing a prawn rod isnt like choosing a fishing rod, fish weighs from as low as 50g to ur own imagination from the wild where prawns were nvr close to even 700g, choosing a prawn rod depends more on skill lvl and personal preference, i prefer a softer tip rod more fun when fighting a 200g above size prawn, the other stiffer ones has a different set-hook pattern from softer tip, BUT i realise stiffer tip ones damn fun for fishing selar, big_eye, todak n other types bait fishes from a kelong.
        in all, brands aint tat important on prawn rod as price range for prawn rod aint any 'BIG' difference from as low as below $20 to $60.
        i'm using Exori 5/6/7 soft tip rod bought at taman jurong Regal Tang, maybe 1 day can have a prawning session together.

            Happy cny to all! Thank you for all the advice so far (:
            I understand it is all about the feel and personal preference. However, the uncle at the prawning area told me if i want to get a rod, i might as well get a good quality one as it is better than those house brand types. So far I like the feel of a medium soft rod with a big hook. Do you think the shops at Changi V sells those?

              trust me or not theres not really any quality comparison in prawn rod, but its up to u to decide if u believe tat 'uncle', all u need is a rod that suit ur style of setting hook on a prawn when it bites not d other way round, Pentagoon where do u normally prawning @?

                      Yup...it has more complications as there are different designs for the different applications involved with the vast types of fishing...at the end of the day we are searching for what works best for us and not for others...

                        True.. Cos im still a beginner. I cant even tie the knots yet. So generally I look for advice. But I already chose my own rod and I tried it out. I like the feel and everything. Is like what you guys said, in the end is really up to personal perference.
