    1-3 kilo rod

    Ok I’ve bought a Samaki Zing generation 3 it’s not the 1-3 kilo when you convert from pounds to kilo I believe it’s 1-2 kilo only 6ft 10 but longer than the aird rod I’ve been favouring . So tomorrow I’ll give it a flick . It does feel really great . Guess seeing it’s my birthday this month an early birthday present

    1-3 kilo rod

    Ok I looked at 2 Samaki rods saw the zing one second but liked the 6ft 10 samaki can’t recall the name now but I liked the lightness
  4. Ok I replaced the 2 DC lures I lost plus a colour I didn’t think I had . Also saw this one similar colour to the DC I lost to the big bream . So I bought this one as well anyone used these crank ones ?

    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

    1-3 kilo rod

    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

    1-3 kilo rod

    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

    Ok I walked to both BCF and Anaconda. I looked at a savage blade at BCF liked the colour but the weight looked to heavy 6 or 8 grams from memory. Anaconda I looked at strike pro blades then TT blades bought a TT 1/8 looked smaller probably size I was looking for . The ones that were recommended above I’ll still look for those but I’m with out a car hopefully until some time in September .
