Rate this topic

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys. Thanks for all the help on the rainshadow blanks below. What St. croix blanks would you reccomend for 3 ounces of led and a bunker chuck or sand worm looking for it to be 10ft long? I also need a pencil popper rod for montauk. Is there any good st. croix for this? I am looking for 11-12 ft 2 piece. Can i use a 2 piece for a pencil popper?

Thanks again guys. This is a big help.

Sincerely,

Dan colville

Surfstiva uses the following St. Croix Avid series and its awsome. 95% of what she throws is pencil poppers. She has a Calcutta 300TE on it and can cast the thing a mile.

 

ASRC100M2 10' M Mod. Fast 2 8-20 3/4 - 4oz

 

Hope this helps,

tom

I have seen it with mine own eyes, and it is a bit scary actually. Got to toss it a few times, nice stick.

The ASRS100M2 is the Avid series, the best blank they make for plugging is the 3SRS100M, 10ft 1piece on the upgraded SC4 graphite...it's rated 3/4 oz thru 4oz but IMO 3oz is the upper limit for leaning on it hard. I have two and like the action better than the 10ft Lami's, but the blank will cost you just as much as a 10ft Lami if you can find it and it's nowheres near as strong as a 1201M, if bigger plugs are your thing, a 1201M, otherwise it's a great blank.
