This is my first post here.
Just asking some advise on the 2 different rods and which you would recommend
I stay in Joburg so this will be used occasionally when we go down to the coast for eds and ineds, basically anything that bites.
I am looking at both, that are 14'6 6-8 spinning. I will probably pair it with the BG 6500/8000.
I did some research and the Okuma comes with Fiji guides where the Assassin only has stainless steel guides.
Had a look at the Assassin today at Mias, Randburg and seems like a decent rod - decent build and light.
They are both in the same price range and perfect for my budget as it will only be used occasionally.
Then my last question, can I use my SL50SH on this type of rod to slide - will the Bionic finger obstruct the line when casting with a multiplier? This will be my first 'BIG' spinning rod.
