has any one used a 23/4 test carp rod when boating i could match this with a 7ht for fishing shads what do you think lads
Either reel will work fine against a Cod, Pollack, Coalfish or Ling.do you yhink that a diawa 7ht will be ok or do you think ill be better with something like penn 535
I have just parted with large amounts of money on some gear so the price would have to be exceptional Roger.on that "don't rely entirely on the retrieve ratio - it also depends... " point
I once wound 20 turns of the handle from a Penn 535 (6:1) to a Boss 665 (6:1) when I wound it back onto the Penn it took 26 turns of that reel's handle to get it back.
TomBette, want an Avet JX8:1 ? I don't use it much and though you may not like it (too big and heavy compared with your favourite reels) I bet you'd find it intriguing (experiential, even LOL!)
yours if you want it. (quick now dash off to check I haven't let it rust to death in my spare room! )
