    Avoid angling specific offerings, they are overpriced mediocrity.

    Re: Baitcasters

    I use an ABU Baitcaster very regularly, it is paired with a 60-100g 9Ft lure rod and they work great together. Must confess that many of the lures are closer to150g but still works well.

    Re: Fox Warrior XT

    For a rod to cast optimum distances, the lead must be heavy enough to compress the top 2/3 when used in anger.

    A 3oz lead should easily hit 80 metres with those rods assuming you have decent line.
