cgbt line of blanks

Rate this topic

Hi Al,

 

First of all thanks for a really great and informative discussion group.

 

I've been using braided line for the past year for bottom fishing and enjoy the benefits of better bite detection and less line drag allowing lighter sinkers. I currently have several older ugly sticks which have seen better days and am therefore interested in replacing them.

 

I would like to have several rods to use over a range of sinker weights (5 ozs thru 16 ozs and occassionally to 20). The CGBTl,ML & M are rated 10-20, 12-25 and 15-30.

 

Does it make sense to build all 3 or can I dispense with the 12-25? What is a good weight range for each blank without overloading it?

 

Thanks in advance,

Chasman

Your idea is probably correct in eliminating the ML. However, I need some more info on the type of fishing you are doing, tide speed and water depth.

 

The CGBT841M has a sinker weight range of 12-20 ounces. The L up to 5 ounces and the ML 8 ounces. These are all approximate.

 

Hope this helps.

I fish primarily the Northfork, Mattituck, the Peconics, Gardiners and out of Orient Pt on various Party boats for fluke (bucktails or bait), porgies, tog, etc. So I guess I do need the ML because frequently you need 8-10 oz sinkers.

 

The way these blanks are rated really doesn't give a good indication of their relative stiffness. I wouldn't of guessed that there would be such a big difference between the L (10-20) and M (15-30).
