hi all
i have a salsa spin and think its a good rod for all my plugging. i now have a year experience and now think i know more of what i want my lures to do, both hard and softs...
some lures work well in some conditions and some i dont seem to get what i want or think there action should be.
i would like peoples opinions of the salsa spin to see if i am heading in the right direction with my fishing and if the rod lacks in the areas that i think it does, if you see what i mean..

basically, i have little rod experiance and do not know if the opinions i have formed are correct, i feel i lack enough experiance to choose a new rod, if required and not sure of the direction to head to develop my fishing any further.

just need some opinions of rod to see if they match mine...

Cheers

Hi Andy, I never used a salsa before. But in your year so far, how do think the salsa is lacking. Surface work? Casting? etc if you know what I mean. Maybe you have learnt/moved on in your time spent so far. How does it pair with your new reel? The fact your asking, shows the possible need to replace it?

Andy i started with the quantum spin and can only say what a fantastic rod for the price, nice fast action and the ability to work a range of lures. Think you should stick with it, if it pleases you. If you need a change and from my limited experience you will notice more of a change in the rods whole performance by changing the reel to something more refined. try a shimano rarnenium 3000, may make you smile all summer.

Jamo, i have it paired with a rarenium 4000 n Mike its a top purchase...
Jamo what did you move onto n why?
Mike we should sort somat soon n go fish... i'll let ya have play w my wand...

Also, i kinda tried to explain probs n it all seemed to lead me to a lighter rod, the salsa being 25-50g although more like 18-40g...

cheers anyway...
