Rod for a Nautil N7500P

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

I'm in need of a rod to go with a Nautil N7500P. It will have to be 2 piece(transportation problems). I would perfer a 10 footer. The weights the rod will be needed for will range from 3/4 oz tins to 3 oz plugs or metal.

The rod will need to be Cheap because of my job situation. The Lamiglas XSRA1204-2 looks like it would be perfect spec wise, the low end is more important to me than the heavier weights. But, I cannot afford any Champayne, just cheap beer.

I also have found the spec's on the Fenwick Saltstik SSGS100H-2 which look good 1/2oz-4oz 15lb-30lb line. I also have found it listed for 86 bucks. This is the best I have found so far.

Am I missing anything out there. Used would be fine with me. Any idea's?

Digger, you could try one of the Tica rods, I don't know, the exact model but there are a couple to choose from. Daiwa sealine X in a 10' or 11'. Or one of the new Lamiglas Surf King rods.

Penn SpinFisher Big Game -Surf in the 10 or 11 ft. lengths, you'll have to choose between med-heavy or heavy action. The 11 ft. med heavy sounds right if you are throwing 2 oz and less.

I don't think a 10' Sealine-X would suck for what you want.

 

I'd say Lami GSB 1202L if ya wanna spend about $200 & wrap it yerself for those weight ranges.

 

But since you have that Champaign taste with a beer budget thing go'in, the X isn't that for off the Lami.

 

Don't let the rating (3 to 7) on the blank scare ya off it, it loads with a much lighter bait, and 7 ounces is way too much for it.

Digger, I have a Penn Newport 10 ft. med -heavy rod which I think the Big Game Surf replaced (similiar). It's rated 3-6oz but really should be rated 3/4- 3 oz based on my experience. It's perfect for 1 -2oz plugs. So based on that I think the Big Games are over rated and are no where near handling 3+ ozs. Maybe you can check one out at a local Penn dealer.

Also I too have heard good things about the Fenwick Salt Stik both 9 and 10 ft models.
