    Hi lads just a quick question, I was recommended this rod for bass plugging in the 8 foot version. I got the rod and all but cant help think that its very weak and wouldnt be able to handle a decent fish :cry: I am yet to catch a bass on it but I am not very confident in the rod because it is so lightweight and thin. Has anyone ever used this rod? cheers,Ian

    Either up to 16g or up to 35g.

    Well found Tunny...!

    Hmmm - if it's the 16g (max) rod you have Ian, I would suggest it may be a bit lightweight unless you are in snagfree country.

    If it's the heavier rod (up to 35g), you should be fine - I regularly use a Shimano only rated to 40g and I have no problems with its' power...:thumbs:
