    Hi Adam
    Right shock leader first the optimum drop for the spod is from the tip eye to somewhere between the spigot and the first eye on the top section, this will ensure you achieve the maximum arch speed acceleration. The leader should therefore be 6' from the tip and at least five turns around the spool.
    I think to be honest at the price you are looking at from all the rods I have been able to try I would highly recommend a Chub Outkast mine have been absolutely bullet proof and can cast a huge range. Coupled with a lifelong no quibble guarantee you can’t go wrong mate









    PS dont look to closley wt the tummy I was carrying my winter weight LOL

    I recently did a coaching event at Horse shoe lake the swim were were put in had a nice spot at about 120 yards I got the chub outkast out and I and the clients could easily hit the spot. During the day the wind got up and hitting the spot became very difficult as we were forced to cast directly into the wind. So I got the long range gresy spod rod out and due to the rods extra lenght and sstiffer action the clients just could not get the range becuase the rod demand a lot of energy to compress the rod enough to accerate the spod.
    The conclusion I drew from that was the Chub Outkast despite being low cost was perfect for both experinced and inexperienced angler to get on with and acheive very respectable casting ranges with.

    The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but obtainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

    you forgot to add that if the rod still feels stiff, lengthen the drop a bit, floppy shorten it.
    You're born, you take sh*t. You get out in the world, you take more sh*t. You climb a little higher, you take less sh*t. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what sh*t even looks like. It's just a shame I'm still on the first rung!
