i would guess at a 20-30lb class or more, heavy rod mate, will handle leads from about 8oz to about 1.16lb or 17.6oz so quite a bit of kit. like i said only a guess and could be well off!

30grs = approximately one ounce, so 200grs will be 6-7ozs'ish, 500grs = 16ozs or there about? How that relates to 'pound test curve' ????

Thats the sort of answer that makes me wonder why its worth bothering. I was hoping my answer would be useful; 30grs = approximately 1 oz as a general rule of thumb? . . .

. . . of course, you are 'always right' Gazmonster :rtfm:

What poundage does that relate to in a boat rod???
Depends on the type of rod, if this is a pirking rod then that gives the range of pirk weights that it's designed for. Normally middle of the range gives best performance. It may also be a casting rod and this is just rated like a shore rod.
