Would you guys that own a 1265 throw a 3.2 ounce plug with it?

I throw pencils with it that big. I THINK it was rated to 4oz and then they later changed it to 3.5oz.

Owned a 1265 for a bunch of years. I bought the factory model when they first came out. I have taken loads of fish on it, blues to 20# and largest bass was about 31#. The blue of course was more work. Nice rods, casts very well and in my opinion matched up well with a VS 200. I would say the weight range depending on whether it's a bucktail or plug would be 3/4 buck ( 1/2 if you have some help ) up to 2 3/8 SS popper/ needle etc. I occasionally threw the 2 3/4 SS popper but it was marginal at that point. Did not feel perfect but did throw long on that weight.

DSPM, loaded Redfins and most plugs at 1oz + are fine. I still have it as a backup but I fish with an ODM Nex 1, 1-4oz.


As a comparison with respect to distance...........does the ODM throw farther than the SS?
