just spoke to my buddy on singer island and informed me our friend had his shakespear rod snapped in half last night by something. I have the same rod as a starter rod as well as another shakespear. now I def DO NOT want this to happen to me.
the 2 reels I run are baitrunner 6000d and captiva ide say 8000 series or size equivilent. I use the rods for pier fishing and snapper fishing. the captiva is mostly on my surf rod but like to put it on a smaller rods sometimes.
in the car world i feel im running stock rods right now and its time for an upgrade. ive got 2 built motors just need a chasis
Phil; Do you know if he locked the drag on that fish? Fastest way I know to break a rod is too much reel and not enough rod.
