BTW HT, hows the baot coming? any progress pics??
I am happy to leave the guys to get on with it. I am told she will be ready for wiring etc on the 20th. So all being said hopefully month end.
HOWEVER - I am more than happy to crew for Dr Fish.
I know Miles is running around today so I'll answer the rod question.
I was on Mile's personalised Calstar. A brute of a rod.
The other rod (Matt) is his one. It's a Tuna Stopper 50-100Lb rod and a tad soft for my liking but still a very powerful stick.
As to rods right now because the old Diawa STP 24-37kg stick, the yellow eye binding ones are no more, the best bet is the Penn 37-50kg. Excellent value for money and strong as an ox. The new Diawa STP's the grey/black ones are/have high graphite content. Fine for recreational but for commercial punishment they do snap.
This of coarse is MY OPINION and mine alone.
