    I've used a 1.75 TC barbel rod to cast one and it's fine.

    They're so easy to cast that I don't bother with a rod

    Seriously though, you'll be fine. I use a 2.75lb TC rod and 30lb braid for my spodding and I don't have any probs.

    I'd guess you'd be ok with 20lb braid aslong as you're not trying to hit 150 yards, those little spods ain't that heavy fully loaded
