My first post on the forum. I am from the UK and I target the European Sea Bass, or just plain Bass as we call them here. A few anglers here target them here from surf beaches with lures.
Would anyone here be able to describe the differences between the two rods I mention in the title please?
What is the sweet spot for both?
How much farther will they 10' cast if at all (I know, lots of variables here)?
Action faster on the 9'6?
Does one perform different tasks, i.e. is one better with a hard plastic lure (minnow) or metal or heavy soft plastic
How's are they both for Buck tailing (something I want to try over here)
I want to get as much reach (casting) as I can, but be able to throw soft plastics with jig heads up to 60g, as well as metals into the surf, to reach structure (bars, rips holes etc.). I see a lot of videos that Kil put up are from the boat, are there any where people are using these rods in full surf conditions?
I would love to know your thoughts, Any help would be great!
All the best
