the big replicants weigh in at about a hundred grams bear that in mind when picking a rod, if you stick to the six inch ones though you should be ok

its not only that its working the things as well, most rods are a bit under rated in that you can throw above the stated weight not all though and most work at there best somewhere between the rated weights

so beware, im also of the opinion that while you can fish lures with heavy braid on fixed spools once you start getting above 50lb braid you are always better with a multi set up

a couple of rods to cover everything you want to throw starts seeming a good idea once your doing more lure fishing, and then you buy both lighter ad heavier lures and end up buying rods to cover those better..... Wink
