Well as Mark Taylor has the desire to cast a beasty rod and weights up to 300 gram :shock: he decided to order one in the current order. :mrgreen:

We also got some itiwnium guides for it and I set these up with a temporary tip guide as I didn't have one with a large enough tube to fit which was irritating but better than nothing.
Casting with the rod kicked of down at Cherry Lake this morning and I decided that since the guidelines were for this rod to be used with the heavier leads, I started casting with the 200 gram. This was short lived however as I had a rush of blood wanting to smack the rod and snapped the lead off. I then went back to the car and re-rigged with a new leader and attached the 175 gram to her.

I must say that whilst a very powerful rod it was not to bad as I got the feel of how she loaded up.

Here is the video from that morning session for you guys and gals interested in heavy duty rods. :mrgreen:

Although this is rated as a very powerful rod there is still some movement in the tip. Look great. Sure Mark will have some memorable moments with his new rod....
