    1-3 kilo rod

    I will say the rod casts the tournament spike lure fantastic probably due to it being 4 grams . Next flick I’ll use the sienna 1000 with that lure at west lakes .

    1-3 kilo rod

    I’m happy with flicking this rod I’ll let everyone know when I land a fish on it . i have landed bream on one this weight before but shorter length and im using 2500 and 1000 reels maybe a 750 again one day

    You won’t be using it at the local HB in the Onk or the beach I’m guessing . Can’t wait to see the results . I’m happy with a light rod feels perfect with a smaller reel

    1-3 kilo rod

    I’ll let you know how it goes when I handle a fish . But for me it feels great with a 2500 reel and 1000 reel.

    1-3 kilo rod

    You do better than me I started lure fishing after saltwater fly fishing 10 years ago the Diawa aird rod was the first one I used . The 2-4 kilos I’ve been using weren’t cutting it for me the savage travel. rod was great over the other two rods until one of the eyes fell off . i have used diawa aird 2500 back when they were massive I’ve used shimano sienna 1000 and my shimano 750 now with a smaller 2500 . the aird was much lighter than the 2-4 kilos plus would cast the smaller light weight lures . Once I have my first cast with this diawa 1-3 hyper rod I’ll try the smaller reels that was my dream back in 2015 before my head injury . lets be honest the shop person tried to take me for a ride I should’ve known it was a bait rod like a broom stick . i wanted a lighter rod my dream catch bigger fish on smaller reels I’ll get back to it pretty sure the 750 and maybe the 1000 have landed me 38 cm bream the old aird got me bream and mullieway

    1-3 kilo rod

    Let me get used to it one of those reels needs new line . But I was thinking the same thing myself . Hopefully this rod will flick some smaller lures better than the 2-4 kilo and longer than the aird did . I think I have a some lures a great fisherman gave me time will tell

    1-3 kilo rod

    Ok a little update . The 2-4 kilo rod I bought like a broomstick was returned to where I bought it . Replaced it with a Diawa Hyper 1-3 kilo 7 ft 2 piece hopefully I’ll have a flick this week .

    1-3 kilo rod

    Ok it’s not worth writing a fishing report . Saturday was a donut morning at west lakes flicking around a tiny Aus tackle black lure I’ve landed bream on in the past . Sunday I hit the northern end of the local third cast with a eco gear 30 something lost a 20 cm ST. The ecogear was gold black orange belly red eyes . Nothing else hit the steps but to much weed . Was a donut but finally I could cast a tiny ecogear lure and get interest .

    Ok went for a quick flick in the Pat 6.15 to 7.20 No fish I saw tiny bait fish no hits caught lots of weed Now the 6ft 6 aird I used my Diawa exceler 2500 why did I stop using this rod same cast lengths and so light to hold

    1-3 kilo rod

    Here’s a picture of what the rod says no idea why I thought it was 2-4 kilo may have got it 10 years ago

    1-3 kilo rod

    I thought this one was 2-4 I assumed all my rods were . The 2-4 kilo I bought last week seems like it’s not for lures even though it says it can be used . The length of casts isn’t great . The 1-3 kilo I caught bream on with a diawa Aird 2500 years and years ago my LT exist is 2500 and smaller . Last weeks rod seems more solid and the base is not like all the other rods I own they are smaller in length while the newer rod the base is longer

    1-3 kilo rod

    Actually the rod I purchased was 2-4,kilo 7ft 2 pieces just didn’t cast far enough for my liking . The rod I’m thinking of using I just realised by reading it is 1-3 kilo and it was the first Rod I used with hardbodies after coming from fly fishing . just having casting issues with the 2-4 kilos

    1-3 kilo rod

    The rod I bought is shit be better for bait but my oldest rod feels better and casts better than the last one iirc as I moved onto 2 - 4 kilos
  24. I bought a cheap rod for Father’s Day 2-4 kilo it’s not good. I wanted a change . Was looking at my rods first one I bought to use lures on was a diawa aird 1-3 kilo caught lots of bream on a aird 2500 with this . should I take the risk looks good feels good and the 2500 I’m using is smaller than the older diawa models
