GSB120-2L or GSB132-2L help

Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

Help,I'm stuck on a hard choice.

MY 1502MH (bait)is on the way, Now I need to select something to handle spoons and bucktails.

I keep reading about folks breaking the 132-2L?

Is the 120-2L a better choice, easy to caster for many hrs?

Or is the extra foot of the 132-2L a benefit?

What would be a good reel?

I have 525mags with tri-plus 14# as my light line.

My others have 17#, 20#

Thanks

BC,

2pc is due to transport problems. I do like the feel of one pc rods. I am working on an 8ft "e" Batson for lifting power, but must take it down to 7'10" to place in my home-made transport tubes.

I just don't think this "e" will get near the distance on 1.5-4oz stuff. But it should be fine for 50-80yd I hope.

The tip size on the GSB132-2L is 12.

Is that too big to handle 1.5-4oz?

Maybe it is thick but thin-walled?

I could see that the 8 tip on the GSB120-2L would handle a lighter load.

How far off are the ratings on these rods?

SM, BC,

The 132-2M is a 4-10oz. (I have the GSB1502M for this weight group).

The 132-2L is 2-5oz. if the size-12 tip is not TOO THICK it may work to fill my 5oz. or less needs on the surf???

Is the rating right-on for the 132-2L as is in lenght?

Would a large spool spinner work better for this weight group or should I use a 525mag with 14# main and 30# or 40# shocker?

I have the 6-8oz. range covered and under control.

Thanks
