Good for your buddy! Sounds like a great rod to give away

I have an 11' TICA, can't remember the cost but it wasn't much. Check with John at Betty and Nicks, he has a lot of great rods, and I think they are on sale now.

Personally I like Lami and custom Lami rods, but the Tsunami Trophy is a nice rod for the money.

What weight range are you planning on throwing and what's the budget ?
You can go from $600+ for a Zipplex to $80 for a Tica

hopefully I won't have to throw more that 4 or 5 oz but would like a rod that can handle 6 oz.

If you go down the custom path you might want to check out 2 blanks from the Lamiglas lineup. The first one is a 10ft'er (GSB 122 1MH) and will handle a huge load. The other is 11.6 ft'er (GSB 136 1MH) and is the stick of choice here on Long Island's south shore of the chunkin' clan. Don't think you could go wrong with either of these two.

I have 3 surf sticks now 9'6" 10' and 10'6' they all are spinning rods but the 10' is switch back and forth with spinning reel and conventional works very well but it feels like it is maxed out 4 or 5 oz with big chunks of bait the rod is and ABU Garcia which I bought about 40 yrs ago the 9'6'' is also a ABU Garcia and the 10'6' is a Fenwick they all work very well so now I am looking for pure conventional rod probably a 11ft tica

Garcia Rod?

I picked one up at Wally World a few years ago myself. Think it's called a "Workhorse"? 10'6", heavy 4-6 oz. I believe. Short money and it's a good rod for what was paid. Around $70?

Tica IMO does fine too.

Surprisingly, the more expensive rods I try and take better care of. But they're full of issues. Mostly with guides, seats, tips.

The old, cheap clunkers that I just don't take care of,,, seem to last forever!

Wonder why that is.

What color is the Fenwick ?

You might want to check out the Ocean master series at BPS. They've been getting excellent reviews.
