Looking for a bit of advice on this rod please chaps.
The rod is rated 1-4 oz, I have been casting 3oz but am failing to reach more than 80 to 90 yards.Is the rod capable of powercasting 4oz plus a large 6 inch sandeel?

Stick one on and see , won't hurt the rod, you could try using lighter mainline as this will give a bit more distance, don't forget a decent leader of 40-50lb

I have the 1-4ozs version and it is marked "Amorphous Whisker" - the more common Supercast Bass is 2-4ozs.

My rod is pretty knocked about now but still lovely to cast with. You should get well over 100yd casts with small baits and 4ozs but there is a limit to how far a 4ozs weight will tow a large bait anyway.

My best catch with my Amorphous Whisker Bass was six cod averaging over 5lb from a steep shingle beach on a rough day. I had to step up to 5ozs to carry a big king rag bait into a stiff wind, the rod coped well! Interesting getting those fish out of the undertow though!

Not recommended unless you are stuck with the one rod though!
