What sort of weight is the rod capable of?


Cheers mate, this rod is a 20-50lb, to be used to catch marlin and speedy whoos! Wooden but cap I turned down out of kamphor wood. I love the grain it has.

I thought they were pineapples, not pine cones.

Nice work, we sure have some talent here at AKFF.

Pine cones, Douglas fir

Coincidence?

Spiral wrap interesting
How many guides to full defection?
I'd be guessing 3 or 4 on a rod that heavy?

Ps nice work!

Yeah probably, cause it will actually get used, unlike others who have one, hidden in their rooms covered in jiz!

I used 3 to full. Also used a smaller second guide to reduce the angle between stripper and third keeping even spacing off the blank as it wraps. Works really well, very happy with a heavy static test to check layout.

Congrats on the delivery of the new baby. :D "Predator" may not be the best nickname though.


Cheers Indie. A weave is on the cards but forget the stork! That's an old wives tale :D

Yeah predator wouldn't be good, perhaps 'Aussie with Safa blood that'll show the wannabes how to play rugby and actually win'

Will catch up soon.

X2 mate congratulations to your lovely missus. You best get safa or uncle Pauly to show the young fella how to fish tho, seems his father is crap at catching anything.

Hey Gra.....this rod stuff is all your fault, little did you know that one arvo in the cave would lead to an addiction. This rests solely on your shoulders!

Hey Nick, cheers bru. Ill pm you re a lure I'm after from japanese.

Thanks Kev, glad he made it this time. Now I have a little Couta to go fish with in a few years.
