Fishing for information on 15' beachcasters i:e pro's / cons .. apart from the obvious that it's bigger than other beachcasters and casting performance... Thinking of getting one.

The way this government is rolling over to the EEC and the commercial boys I think you wanna forget the beachcaster and invest in a couple of miles of gill net particularly if you fancy a couple of bass :mad:

Took a walk down Knab rock last night to catch up with a few mates, and to be nosy!
Counted 6 guys using Cobras... must be something about them to be so popular?

I use a 15 ft k2 extreme for my Match rod these days

I find I can put baits out further and easier with the 15 compared to the 13 and my multi

Fixed spool with braid on big rod is the way to go on clean ground for me now

Can't fault it so far and I've defiantly noticed the difference in matches

like the look of the cobra too . Might be my next purchase

When I first tried braid I used 30lb diawa something . Was a really bad shout ended up wasting £30

Any sort of onshore wind and all hell would brake loose .

Using 50lb whip lash with a 60lb leader it's overkill really but still casts like a good one . The extra diameter seems to stop the wind knots .

Haven't had one since I switched to 50lb

I got one of them Penn spinfisher 7500lc so can use the fixed spool off the Rock marks too if I nest my two multis

It's working well fair play

I think its cos they seem to have more grunt than normal continental rods, better for the channel, im thinking of getting a pair but the green puts me off lol
