1-3 kilo rod


Recommended Posts

Now I am using again my first lure flicking rod a Daiwa Arid 6ft 10 1-3 kilo rod works well . I’m told I’m getting a gift card for Xmas so I’ll use it and pay the rest I’m looking for a rod 7ft 1-3 kilo no heavier any ideas and not $600  worth either . I had a dream many years ago bigger fish on lighter gear . I was sold a rod near that but not as good as the old arid rod . Any clues guys

Samaki Zing Gen 3 2-6lb 7’0” 

Savage Gear Black Savage 1-3kg 6’6”

Daiwa Tierra 702LXS 1.5-3kg 7’0”

Atomic ArrowZ Estuary 2-6lb 7’0”

All of these four rods will suit your style of lure flicking. All graphite, lightweight etc and mid-range price point.

Thanks 2 are to heavy for my needs I have 2-4 kilo rods as well . I somehow like the 1-3 kilo arid rod . Once I’m ready I’ll have to check them out I never buy a rod without seeing it thanks again

What two are too heavy? 6LB is only 2.7kg 🤔

I want a rod that says 1-3 kilos on it same as the Daiwa Arid I’ve had for 10-11 years stopped using it went to 2-4 kilos . I want a light weight rod that says on it 1-3 kilo they seem whipper than 2-4 kilo rods I own .

hope that explains it I want to land bigger fish on a 1-3 kilo rod using light weights lines currently using diawa J8 braid with 4 lb fluorocarbon leader and it works great on the Daiwa aird 1-3 kilo rod

The rods state 2-6lb rating which converts to roughly 0.9kg-2.7kg. Which will be exactly like a rod that states a 1-3kg rating. Some companies prefer to put their ratings in pounds (lb.) because most commonly, fishing line is rated in pounds (lb.) so it makes it easier for the angler.

Ok I can’t take a picture of what the Aird rod says 

model number 662LFS-DA 6’6”lure 2-8 kilos line 1-3 kilos 

That’s the type of new rod I’m after maybe a little taller at 7

That Tierra would probably suit you best, LXS=

L = Light

X = eXtra Fast action

S = Spin

ie a whippy light tip but more guts near the handle. I've landed 50cm salmon on it but it's light enough in the tip to feel tiny bites.

Thanks Soobz I can’t get to look today but I’ll remember this one sounds great

It's a great lightweight rod Micky, my arms are never tired after three hours of continued casting light weight lures in the rivers.. actually the fishing video that I just put on the site is one that I used the Red Belly rod on..

cheers

Adrian

Hi Micky. If you were prepared to go secondhand check the local Adelaide TackleBox secondhand site. Every now and then a great rod comes up at an even greater price. Regards, HBt.

Thanks HB I’ll keep that in mind
