Sb 1363 m

6 posts in this topic

Hello Folks, How do you guy's have your 1363m setup if you have one? What type of fishing are you doing with it? I just got my honey beauty and I know I need to cut it back. I would like to fish large popper's, needle fish and heavy jigs. I know it will be a spinning rod with a reel that has a large diameter spool. I will fish 20-25lb mono or 65lb power pro depending on how the power pro works out with slow moving plugs. I read the prior post that suggest's Fuji High Frame in Hardaloy or SIC 40HH, 30H, 25H, 20H, 20H, 20M, 20M and an SIC tip with a #20 ring. I would like to cut the rod back to 10 ft to 10.5 What end are you guys cutting from and how many guides are you using on a shorter version of the 1363m. Thanks for any help, Bruce Fsher.

One configuration that Ditch Jigger recommends often is 4 off the tip and 8 off the butt...that'll leave ya 10 1/2'. For bigger stuff I'd think maybe 6 off the tip and 6 off the butt might work out pretty well. Personally, my 136 3M (blem) that I wrapped didn't survive long enough for me to get a real good feel for how it would handle plugs/jigs. I threw bait with it and found it to be a wonderful blank for that smile.gif

 

I also did mine in conventional so I'm still no help to ya! wink.gif

Tim thanks for the input. I hope the other boys will jump in on this one. I know a few of them have this blank they must be busy catching linesides. Ps: The smilin Bills worked great at the vineyard this year, you tie them up real nice. I should have got a few more of the 3-5 oz variety. The squid were thick out in the rips and holes.
