Ive got a 12′ surfcasting rod (cheapie), 20lb braid , using a pulley rig with bait clip.
Usually a 3 or 4 oz breakaway or pyramid.
Still learning to cast as far as possible with ‘off the ground’ casting etc.
Basically trying to get over the breakers at Amberly beach is a bitch unless i wade out far….which isn’t ideal as its gets colder.
Is there a certain rod that can handle more weight/power to cast further? Would upgrading to a 15′ make a significant difference?
I see that rod stiffness is a factor but don’t quite understand.
If anyone has any advice I would be thankful – cheers.27/01/2015 at 8:00 am #25399croozerParticipant
Yes. You want a good quality graphite-Kevlar rod in the 14-16 ft range. Probably better to stick with the 14-14″6′ rod to start off with as the longer ones can be a handful until you are completely competent at casting. If you want any more info, send me a pm with your cell #, cheers.27/01/2015 at 10:26 am #25400AnonymousInactive
Thats great – thank you for the advice – will look into it. Will thrash the one ive got and look at that next summer. Do you have an example or rough idea on price/brand you think is adequate?02/02/2015 at 2:41 am #25413croozerParticipant
