Do you guys on here like to keep your set-ups the same? I'm in the market for another beachcaster suited to multiplier use. My other is a 13ft rod and mag reel capable of chucking out 4-8oz of lead if required. I'm happy with the combo I have and was originally going to buy the same set-up, but recently have seen a sonik rod that looks good too. Now I've read good and bad about the sonik but I've also read for and against on the kit I have already too and I'm happy with the set-up. I suppose the only thing with the sonik is it's rated at 4-6oz and on some of the north wales coast I fish the 6oz is the upper limit of the sonik but not that I tend to use leads heavier than that I suppose. So is it a case of stick to what you know/happy with or slightly different set-ups to cover different conditions areas maybe?
