Looking to buy a new fishing rod. Need some good suggestions.. Previously I was using Shakespeare Travelmate 6’6″ Rod. I want to upgrade to new brand.

Princemoga,

Are we talking about spinning rods or fly rods? What are you fishing for, masheer?

If it's a fly rod you're looking for..... perhaps a 6' 2wt fly rod. That would be a very light rod and good for area's where you were using the Shakespeare Travelmate.

Snowbee has a inexpensive 6' 2wt classic rod you might check out

Hmm, first post and it appears to be a blatant ad to sell fly rods.
