Hi.

Iv got my Akios Scora 80 reel, and need a nice distance casting rod, that's balanced for Mixed ground. I don't want a heavy rod, it has to be a light as possible. Any recommendations please? Looking primarily second hand to pay around £150 mark, maybe more. It does not have to be super stiff, but does need to have fast recovery for Pendulum casting.

Thanks, Dan.

Kompressor sport is a good mixed rough rod
Bit heavy?
Bit stiff for an FS?

No ones going to be right, but of the Century stable I would be tempted to consider a second hand TT Lite.
It is parabolic in action, easy to load, OK sensitivity, and tip is strong enough to deal with mixed ground. I use with multiplier, but would think a great action for FS.
Bizarrely, if I were to choose one rod out of the ones I own or have tried for a friend for all fishing it would probably be the TT Lite, despite the fact others beat it in all depts..
Good for beach, mixed, feathering, red tailing with 2-3 oz Carolina rig.
Casts 5oz, or pendulums 4oz very well. At a guess, I would think 175 yards?
Second hand mk1 - £100-125?
Just a guess.

Is there such a rod that can be used for both FS and multiplyer? I already have two nice rods, but the first ring is way too small for a FS, which is a shame. I know you can use a Multi on either, but would be nice to have something between the two, like slightly bigger rings, and spacing, moveable reel seat/

Hi there,
I stand to be corrected, but I am pretty sure the answer is 'yes'.
On Century's website, there is a picture of a guy holding a very nice dolphin (dorado), and I am pretty sure that is a TT Lite and FS.
My understanding is that, in the old days, a rod was built for one or t'other, because the loading is on different sides (bending at belly for multiplier, back for FS), but I am pretty sure that is not the case now.
I am also pretty sure that factory builds can be used for both too now.

As I say, I do stand to be corrected by someone who knows their onions a little better?

Here is one thread that might interest?

Also, I think you have wrong way round?
Multiplier can not be used on FS rings (line touches blank), but FS can be used on multiplier rings.
Do check though.

Rintaro Ohmura, late head of Fuji came up with the Ohmura Cone, which suggested that high standoff, but smaller diameter rings would suit both fixed-spool and multiplier reels. I built a rod to his recommendations, and lo and behold, it worked! She who must be obeyed spotted the rod, and claimed it as her own, what could I do....
