2 posts in this topic

hello

i'm writing from italy.

i have hav several casting problems using my Daiwa Powermesh Beach 13 ft,2-4 oz.

Previousily I got 2 daiwa HPB 12 ft 4-8 oz and my performance were very good, i think first because of the casting power and then for the length.

my question is:

CAN I SHORTEN MY POWERMESH 13FT TO 12 FT?

I THINK THAT I MUST TAKE OFF 1 FT FROM THE GRIP SECTION (from the bottom), BUT I'M AFRAID THAT THIS WILL COMPROMISE THE ROD ACTION.

CAN SOMEONE HELP ME??

PLS ANSWER

How far is the bottom of the reel seat from the butt now? Alot of big production rods put the reel seat ridiculously high up on the blank, but a foot may still be a lot to chop off. Try taking off 6" first. It'll probably make a big difference.
