LOL
That's my thread lol.
Do you not reckon it would be up to the job?
Would love any input..
I think some of the gear we use will take a lot more stick than some people imagine.
When mulleting in spain on the ebro I regularly use my stc 10-30gm speedmaster for lobbing 4oz method feeders, doesn't even complain lol. Have had cats over 40lb by accident doing this.
Also used it when wrecking in the summer in 180ft to see how far I could push it, no problem with cod to double figures, as long as you don't high stick it's unbelievable what they'll take.
I have a yak and wouldn't dream of a 12-20lb boat rod, unless in deep water fast tides etc.
Cheers mate.

Don't worry about it mate. Sounded a bit nuts to me as well that someones using it just for codding!

Can't wait to get one now and try snap it in 3 on some jacks.

Will be interesting to know how the one going to kenya stands up.
