2-4kg, 7ft graphite rod paired with a 1000-2500 sized reel. Classic setup.

Price will determine the quality. Go checkout dinga for these two items to see what fits your budget!

For bream I would say 1-3kg or even 1-2kg. Go as light as humanly possible, not only is it way more fun, but you get better sensitivity and it is more comfortable and easy to throw all day. I have a 0.5-2kg bream rod, and have even caught big trevally and 80cm+ flathead on it with no problems whatsoever.

My daughter has been using a Samaki Zing on bream and bass etc, fantastic value.IMG_1351.thumb.JPG.03f4c2cb30c17795c230d2a4e958cdae.JPGIMG_1354.JPG.9bf27e6d3f54f741289c094d4294f520.JPG

I started off with a shimano catana/cazna combo 2-4kg which served me for a few years from memory about $100

since upgraded to a ballistix gold 2-4kg and a stradic 2500 which Im more than hapy with

You got plenty of options mate.

I run a 1-3g NS Black Hole Avenger 7ft with a Stradic FK 2000 (FK because I like the rigidity instead of the Ci4+ which I find a little to flexible for tough fights. 2000 because I like the versatility, I used to fish 1000 size reels but i found it to light and unbalanced ona  7ft rod)

My backup (currently for sale) is a Pflueger Trion Bream specialist 1-3  7ft (single piece) pair with a Pfluegar salt 2000. Great little rod for the boat and off shore. I don't use it much as prefer a 2 piece rod.

The other setups that I've considered are

G Loomis GLX 1-3kg 2 Piece. Its a fantastic rod, but you'll need to wait for a sale as they can cost up to 500+ just for the rod alone. I'd pair this with an Stradic FK or  Abu Garcia Revo MGX both in the 2000 size.

Nitro Vapor 60 / 70. the 60 I'd pair with a 1000 size reel and the 70 i'd pair with a 2000 size reel. This would fit your budget if you went with an FK
