Rod and reel advice

Post  Andi on Sun Feb 13, 2011 6:12 pm

Hi

I'm in the market for a new rod and reel, not necessarily to use with each other.

I want a rod for whacking out 60-100g lures, the reel needs to be suitable for braid.

Got a budget of 100.00, can anyone recommend anything?

I'm also going to get a 6-7ft rod for canal jogging if anyones used anything similar I'd take recommendations on that?

ok 60 -100gm is firmly a jerkbait sized set up

plenty on offer you will need a multiplier and braid around the 80lb mark

no iffs no buts that is more or less it as lure in this size go, fixed spool reels are useless with the braids you need for hefty lures

fox do good rods for the money, my choice though are the nash jerk's under the specialist range, they have been discontinued for a bit but turn up on ebay etc every so often.

reel wise abu's are the norm 5601 6501's etc again there are others like the daiwa proteus or offerings from shimano.

some of the low profiles are ok for this but i prefer 'round' reels

you anyone near who throws these things?

Unfortunately i've not come across anyone with anything to add to my knowledge in my short time pike fishing.

The only chap to approach me i get the impression was trying to scare me off his favorite water from what he was saying.

I'm struggling to understand why people are so secretive, i understand being quiet online but on the bank, surely you can help one another out?

As for tackle, i've been into Fosters in Brum a few times, there's a good lure guy in there but no-one i trust to talk about tackle with, i feel that i may be over sold gear!


Has anyone any experience with the Abu Garcia Cardinal C3 Series Reel? It's on special at Glasgow angling for 35 instead of 70.00. Not sure if i should go for that?

I'm probably going to forget the Jerkbait rod for now, more interested in a decent upto 60g rod, got a budget of about 65.00 for the rod if anyones got any suggestions?

c3's are the one lots choose if you can avoid the bcx models though as they are chinese and there have been whinges about parts

i have to add i dont use them im only going off other peoples opinions there

one relativly cheap rod is the berkely llightening i think its called 1-3 ounce casting weight and was about 30 -40 quid
