:-DJust a quick report - a mate of mine was back from oz for a couple of weeks so we met up for a bit of pollack bashing around the dungarvan area. Hammered loads of pollack on ultra light gear for a few hours and think i got him round to the idea of trying a bit of lrf in oz. We had pollack up to 3lbs on a cormoran ulx, shimano rarenium 2500 and 10lb braid with small SPs. Was amazed that the little rod could cope with some of the bigger fish - any bigger and i think we'd have been in trouble. great to see a rod bent 90 degrees and 15-20ft of line stripping off the spool. I know a lot of the lads on here have been raving about the LRF and i just want to add my recommendation. if you haven't tried it then give it a shot. great to get a decent fight out of a fish again. no pics because we were sitting up on top of a high pier wall and didn't want to risk dropping the work phone in!

Hi Ronan, Nice one on the LRF sesh, another convert! Loads of kit in Oz for your mate to choose from too. I got a Comoran ULX a couple of weeks ago and love it! It's a lovely bit of kit with much more grunt than my last LRF rod. I haven't gone over it's limit yet, like you I had a 3lb-er last week but I'd like to have a 4lb-er on it:!:

Great stuff. With the quality of fish you have over there it must be LRF heaven!
