Post  frosty on Mon Feb 06, 2012 9:13 pm

hello everybody what a good forum this is. can you help me with some info please,im looking to buy a good lure rod and multiplier reel,im thinking of getting a 6 or 7 ft one piece rod can you tell me if this could be a bad thing to get a one piece rod?if so can you recommend a good rod and reel for lure fishing.as for casting weights i haven't a clue but would like to have a rod and reel set up that will cope with most lures,jerk baits ect. as for the money don't mind going up to 150 ish for the right set up. thank you very much for any info

single piece rods give you better action but if you want a lure rod for quick car boot sessions then two piece is better

at the cheaper end daiwa do good ones in both one and two piece

weight wise aim for something that will cast up to 150 gm as that allows you to throw bigger baits like the replicants and other soft plastic things as well as lighter 50 gm baits, ok going below that you probably will struggle and end up wanting a lighter rod, but get a light rod to start with and you want to go heavier....

reel the standard are round abu's in 5-6000 sort of size then there is all the c3-c4 stuff to look at, i have a cheap shimano corsair a daiwa proteus and a couple of quantum things all of which were cheap and i think the corsair is a better reel for casting but the daiwa stands up to water getting into the bearings better

I have a Revo SX (High speed) and it's the nuts IMO.

Great little reels with an excellent drag system and perfect for chucking medium sized lures on 50lb braid.

ive borrowed one of the revo's and owned a procast

hated both BUT thats a personal preference as i cant get on with magnetic brakes i much prefer relying on my thumb.

both were smooth and performed well though.

could you not set the brake to nothing and just use your thumb? i like to use the break just as a set up point,but nearly always iv set it to a setting where i still have to thumb the spool,or have i been missing something all these years lol Surprised

it doesnt work for me though i can still feel the brake going, i grew up playing with old penns beachcasting and my lure multis have no brakes at all in use, i fact all of them have had the brakes clicked off or removed totally

the interferance from the mag brakes drives me mad.
