Thanks guys for the info.

I've decided to keep the reel and just add a spare spool, but the rod seems a necessity.

I have several good 8 weight travelling rods and conclude that I shall need a 9 or ten weight single hander.

Torn now between a Winston or Xi2 (which I love), although I was impressed by Striblues Winston - both comparable in price although the W was a five piece and noticeably slimmer blank.

Alternatively, reading the reviews the TFO ticr X seems good as does the redington cps. Bearing in mind I'll probably only use the rods for 2 weeks of the year, should I err on the side of economy?. I do hate poor gear, do you get what you pay for?
