hi everyone anyone had any experiance with these rods ,look nice but wondered about c weight ,action etc any info much appreciated thanks guys
I've mostly been using small metals and small plugs around the 10g mark with my 7ft TR4 and tbh I'm not sure how it would fair with larger plugs and poppers. I should be out again either today or tomorrow so I'll try it and report back but I suspect it might just about cast them ok but the tip might be a bit too soft to work the popper.hey dave do you think the 7 ft would handle small poppers up to say 20g ?
If they are that price then that is indeed a bargain, maybe a mistake by the shop so if you are after one then snap one up from herejust read the review dave m ,have you used it in anger yet ? any views, found them at devon tackle 7 ft 49.99 and 8 ft 55.00 bargain
Neil, I had a few cast with some of my bass lures on the 7 ft TR4 yesterday and to me at least it felt most comfortable casting lures in the 5-15g range and was perfect for smaller plugs and surface lures. I tied casting a small chugbug, sammy and a frosty, so up to about 16g (frosty) and the TR4 coped fine but when I tried casting a feedshallow 128 (18.5g) it felt clumsy to me and tbh I was afraid to give it more than a gentle lob but then I'd probably just switch to my heavier bass set-up if I was going to fish that size lure anyway.hey dave do you think the 7 ft would handle small poppers up to say 20g ?
