Heavier spinning rod wanted

Recommended Posts

Thanks Jerry, I took a look at the Majorcraft range, there didn't appear to be anything suitable for handling lures in the 40g to 90g range, except for 1 slow jigging rod.  Quite pricey too at £150 and upwards.

Hi Steve,

Have a look at the Berkley Naumad travel rod - heavy spinning travel rod, 4-piece, 80g casting weight.

Can double up as a holiday rod for barracuda, bluefish, trevally, etc.

 

I won a Shimano 8000-sized reel a few years ago that I've struggled to find a use for, and it makes a good pair.

Hi Steve

I presume that it is a travel rod you are after.

 

I use a Shimano up to 100g , I could let you have the details if you like

 

Mine is the 3 mtr one and a tad long, I borrowed Dan's 2.7 this year for Norway and it had a better balance.

Many thanks for all the input, I was looking for a lure rod for the boat to handle better some of the heaver lures I've been chucking around.

 

I've gone for a Savage Gear XLNT3 Lure Rod, can cast up to 100g.
