Hello everyone, I'm getting into lure fishing, and looking for some advice on a rod and reel to buy. I will mainly be fishing land based for bream, fleathead, whiting etc. in estuaries in and around Sydney, using a variety of lures such as soft plastics, poppers, crankbaits etc. I'm trying to find a 2 piece graphite rod that is roughly 7'6, with a cast weight of around 1-10g or 1-7/8g. I've been looking at the Daiwa TD HYPER 763LXS ROD. Everything about it seems good but it is a 3 piece, I think that may have an impact on sensitivity/feeling bites, if anyone has any experience with a 3 piece lightweight rod please let me know how it compares to a 2 piece. I also have considered a 7' rod such as the Daiwa TD SOL 702LXS SPIN, but I was hoping to have a slightly longer rod to get longer casts. However, I haven't had much experience with using braid so let me know if a 7' should suffice for getting decent casts with braid. If anyone has any other rod recommendations that would be nice, cheers.
