Got some suffix xl yesterday @ rebel sport $15-300m spool 27lb-0.38. Much like fishforpot I normally use a lighter mainline to gain a bit of extra casting distance, & because I prefer a supple line(less line memory) but saw it & thought fcuk it. Mrs got me a Penn Captiva CV 8000 & Powerstick combo for xmas so had to fill the spool with something. Now I will have to get use to using an eggbeater again.
Slightly off subject but anyone know the easiest way to shave some thickness out of the foam part of the handle on a rod? I have fairly decent sized paws, but this Penn rod just doesnt feel that comfortable to hold. My usual surfcasting weapon of choice is my prokat which is a lot slimmer rod.
