Surf Rod for Calcutta

Recommended Posts

I've not had much use for my Calcutta 400 since leaving the NT. I was thinking of using it on a surf rod for salmon and mulloway. Maybe cast lures up to 125 grams and say a fillet of salmon/tommy with a 4 oz sinker. It is spooled with 30 lb braid. Any recommendations for a fast action surf rod? Something light and short? Price no object (yet)

Decent overhead surf rods are hard to come by down here.

I have a Daiwa Sensor that's from the first series they made, great rod that's rated to throw 2-4 ounces, so a little under powered for what you want, also it's 11'6" so maybe too long. Not sure if they still make that model though.

Other than that, Nitro had a rod that might work, called the Messiah maybe.

Otherwise you might need to look overseas, plenty of great stuff from the UK and US although shipping can be cost prohibitive.

Good luck mate. Let us know what you find.
