Rod for a VS200

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

I'm wondering how a VS 200 would work on a GSB1201L or the XRA1204?

 

In the past, I always over-sized my reel relative to the rod...now I am rethinking that approach.

 

What is the consensus on this issue?

It's called a "balanced" outfit, rod, reel, lure and line.

 

If you are using braided line then probably the VS150 would be a better match, since you will have more then enough line capacity and the reel is a little lighter in weight.

 

A 1204 matched with a VS150 or 200 and 30 Fireline or Power Pro will cast 1-3 ounces very well.

The VS 200 fits a 1204 like a cashmere lined velvet glove heart.gif

 

My 120 1L is an ounce or two heavier than the current edition. But it went well with that one, too. IMO, the outfits might be a little tip heavy if you hang a VS 150 off either one.
