Need advise on rod

Hi,

Looking for rods for offshore fishing.

Already gotten my 665N. Hoping to pair it with monster mesh PE 3-6.

And Getting a PE1-3 Spinning with my caldia kix 4000 custom as a backup.

Think that is good enough. Joe Tackle asked me to get PE 6-8 for monster mesh to pair with my 665N. Problem is I cant even handle the pressure when its fully loaded, I can feel my body tipping. In that case, I think I will just let the fish go sia....

Offshore experts reckon that this is sufficient? Will buy these gradually over the months so that I can make it for the next trip anyone is organising.... Shopping has become my top stress reliever at the moment.

Bro, PE6-8 can almost lift any fish in Malaysia. With it's back bone strength, think u can jus "reel" e fish back effortlessly with ur Boss 665N. Abit over kill unless u're aimin >30kg species n above.

Alright... A 3-6 shall be...

For my backup spinning setup shd I get 3-6 or shd I get 1-3?

Have seen the monster mesh in action. Seen the PE 2-4 n the 6-8. Like wat bro 1.5bar said. Its a little over kill for surrounding waters. If there is a 3-6, it would be better since u cant handle the load factor on the 6-8.

bro, depend on wad u wanna play. bottom fishing or ligging?
heavy or light?
btw PE3 to PE6 overkill liao la. unless u really got something BIG.

even the last perkan trip i went, only pair with cheap setup. shakespher wit LD50, and a light jigging rod , only PE 0.8 - PE2, with C kiz 2500. its more den enough to play liao.
as for joe, 6-8 really not a need, maybe his 6-8 no 1 buy, den ask u buy..
1 most important thing u need to buy xtra is yr lines..

Xeno... Thinking of following Alan to SCS one day. So now slowly buy and stock up lah..

If not all buy in one month quite shack leh... Can kill.

IMHO, a PE2-4 with ur knowledge should be able to handle alot of fishes le =) Also, unless u've already bought the 870N. U might wan to consider 270N. Well... that's what i'm thinkin of gettin..lol.. I've a OJ2000P. Went Sedili with it, ended up using my spinning set with my Daiwa SS1600 thru out instead. Spinnin 1-3 is very gd for light jiggin, baiting n squidin.

Soz... i meant 665N.. not 870N..

Xenokel™ aka CSM said...

LOL bro piero.. yes. need to stock up.. but not so heavy tackle la.. tio fish not shiok de..

Piero said...

665N already bought lah...

I wanted a narrow spool and very few places have the extra narrow version for accurate and with the package price hotspot gave me cannot resist manz...

Anyway I will just have to turn the drag down if fishing in local waters. I don't forsee myself going offshore that often so din want to buy a light multipler and a heavy multipler.

Will use 665N for medium/heavy and Caldia Kix 4000 custom for light bottom.
