8 posts in this topic

I have an Saltywater Tackle Outer Banks 300 rod to build. I know that there factory produced rods are MNSG 40,25,20,16,12, 12 Top. Could I choke this down a little earlier? MNSG 40, 25, 16, 12, 12, 12 Top. Rod will be fished with PE5-6 and Stella 14k.

Is there a specific reason you want to do this? You are not going to be casting.

no not really, just seems kind of odd to me so many large guides. Are they really necessary I guess is my question? This is my first heavy jigging rod so just trying to figure out my they are built this way in the first place.

Could be that the buying public in general don't believe that smaller ones are strong enough?

Regardless, the last Outer Banks I built was a 400 model for a Stella 18000.

My set up was with KW's:

40L 25 20 12 12 and a 12 top

awesome, thank so much as usual with your awesome layouts. How do you think the KW compare to MN for heavy fishing and jigging?

Just fine.

Client caught a mess of Dogtooth Tuna on his - he was a very happy customer, no complaints.

Cool, maybe I will give the KWs a try and see how they hold up. They are cheaper than MNs in Japan. Do you think the same layout would work for 14k or would you go smaller? Like 30L, 20, 16, 12, 12, top 12
