It cast like a dream, even with a level wind.Why have it if you can't use it? Doesn't matter what it might be worth in x yrs, you'll always wonder what it would have cast like!
Appreciated Willie. Hopefully I'll be out with it soon, I reckon it'll pair well with my Leeda Icon Match if 4oz is a good weight for it.It cast like a dream, even with a level wind.
Back then if conditions allowed, 4oz lead was all that was required. The level wind made sure you could concentrate of the fish, knowing you had perfect line lay for the next cast.

It'll be somewhere nice and easy Willie, probably around the Clevelys area. I won't be trying it out on the Mersey when it's running like train! ☺Vince, it depends on where you fish with the tide pull and currents. The area I fished didn’t have strong tide pull and a lot of current. It depends if it holds the bottom on the area you fish. Fishing for flatties of a clear calm day it will move about and find a gulley.
You can fish 5oz or 6oz as well no problem.
I found I could get better distance in the right conditions with a 4oz. Hope that helps.
