Choosing a bait rod

As the title suggests, I'm looking to get a more robust rod to chase bream, flatties and whiting on bait. Essentially I'd like to have a cheaper rod that can take a beating when taking friends fishing or chucking bait. Ideally it would have been a previous generation rack raider as I was a fan of the fibreglass-graphite combination and the softer tip action that seems to lack on the newer rack raider. 2 piece is preferred as is a softer tip. Looking in the price range of sub $200 with the finesse raider topping my list currently.

What recommendations have you guys got?

When you said bait rod, I immediately thought you meant full baito style like a 100% fibreglass rod the Ugly Sticks or Silstar Power Tip.

BUt if you are after a Hybrid I'm not sure.

A hybrid or a forgiving graphite rod is what I'd prefer. Just can't stand watching mates flog $300 bream rods like they're chucking slugs on the beach

Yeah I've got a fleet of "Rods for Mates" for pinky fishing

Depending on their level of familiarity with graphite I'll trust some with 1-3kg sticks - if they are competent but still a bit reckless - they get a 2-4kg - and unknowns and high sticking lunatics get 4-8kg
