Light Lure Rod

Post by kif on Wed Feb 09, 2011 8:48 am

Not sure if this is in the right section but here we go anyway.
Started fishing a new water last weekend, its quite small and stuffed full of nice sized jacks and could also hold some nice perch if the 2lb one I had is anything to go by so im looking at getting a lighter set up so I can get a bit more sport from the jacks and target the perch a bit better, does anyone have any rod and reel suggestions ?

I like the Drennan Series 7 Spincast rods but they are rated at 20-80g

Decent rods.

Also, I had a Shimano Vengeance 7ft 10-30g and it was nice but I never got the chance to get anything over 3lb on it as I lost it like a total dingus...

Cork Smelled amazing on it!

Shimano Vengeance

But same as a lot, the make is the indicator on it's quality and 30-40 is enough for a good quality spinning rod

If you want something even lighter and a softer action, I really couldn't say...

It all depends what you are thinking lure wise, my Ultralite outfit is a Greys G-Light Spin and its a nice bit of kit for the money Wink

Linky

I match that with a Shimano Sedona reel and 12-15lb braid makes a very sensative outfit, perfect for small plugs, spinners and jigs

I use crankbaits, softbaits and spinners at the moment so would be using the same just smaller, 20g would be right at the top of weight I would want to cast as my current rod will do 20g-50g.
I like to look of the Spro rod nd reel also looked at the Drennan spinflex 7ft.
