kings were recently selling the team daiwa sol for around r500 (normally retails for 1200). i bought one. really great little stick.
long enough (i dont like anything less than 7ft)
no lure clip
if you want to look at a 6-0 or 6-6, i have an elbe blue crystal which is sweet. just too light for my applications so if AM is too long or heavy, consider the elbe. value for money.
