I am in USA and I am looking for "high end" ($100 or more) telescopic fishing rods for surf/beach fishing.
The specs I need are :
- 12 ft (or more), - Lure weight up to 8oz/250 grams (or more), - Extra Floating guides (if possible) - Action is "medium-heavy".
Online or physical shops in USA generally don't sell such rods. For Ex., Cabela's sells a low-end one for $20. Bass Pro shops does not sell any. Amazon USA sells some from Daiwa, but they are a bit short of my specs. Moreover, they cost about $200 & most of the cost is due to overseas shipping. Thus, in most cases you essentially get a 50-100$ rod for about $200. I'd like to spend more on a better quality rod & less on shipping.
I am looking for rods from brands like DAM (Germany), Daiwa (Japan), Tubertini (Italy) etc. but could not find any dealers which sell them in USA.
Are there any American or international dealers who can ship them to USA at "reasonable" prices ?
