Looking for a weapon to mount onto a stella 8000. 30lb line.  bait/lures      Samaki range looks intresting. 

Any opinions welcome ..

 

I don't have any decent advice but there are exciting times ahead for you by the sounds. What are you chasing?

Hey - Ive got a Samaki that Ive been using with little jigs - its pretty awesome. Ill have to get the model number when Im at the shack on the weekend. Im very partial to very skinny, light weight and deceptively powerful rods....................... this sums up the Samaki!

Loomis use to be excellent - life time warranty, however, I think that has changed now. I was fishing out at Channel Point for barra with a guy that had too much money..................... Im not sure if its because he lost his lure or that I caught the biggest barra - but he snapped the Loomis over his knee. Couldn't believe it - and they replaced it no questions. Again - this was back in the composite days............

This is the Samaki Hunter - I note its rated for jigs to 120 grams, but Ive been using much larger jigs without a problem. In fact, I used a much lighter rod on the 40 kg samson in my profile picture!

I have the same rod - Samaki Vanquish. Great rod. I use 3000 size Daiwa and 4000 size Shimano reels and they balance nicely. I reckon the Stella 8000 will be a tad too heavy. I have an older Saltiga coastal rod I use with Shimano 8000 size reels and its the bomb! Any of the better quality 6' - 6'5" rods rated for jig weights up to 350g - PE 3-4 would be ideal. Go slow pitch - great fun...

Yeah, Im using a 3500 certate on this rod from memory - the combo weighs next to knix.

I didnt get the boat out Im afraid. Was actually pretty blowy when I got up Saturday. In fact, I probably only saw a couple of boats out all day.

Good luck tomorrow at Foul if you go!
