    I would be nervous if I had 3.5 tonnes hanging off the back of my ute which weighs 2.2 tonnes. 3 tonne towing capacity.

    Sounds good ...... I just got a 10.5 for spinning off the beach but it is way to top heavy with a stradic 5000 it would need a reel as heavy as a daiwa bg5000 or 6000 to balance it so I think I will go back to a 9' rod ...... hope yours is better than mine .

    Cheers TAC

    So I hit Anaconda yesterday! The RRP for the 1000 CI4 on the Shimano website is around $360. At Anaconda it was $289 for members...and has been for the last couple months I think. Then they had another deal going with certain reels including the CI4...buy the reel and get a $50 voucher on top! So I pounced!

    The other week when I hit the trout conference in Mansfield, I went in the search for a bakery! And by chance a couple doors up from the bakery there was a tackle store! This was the result!

    I am thinking of having a week of work soon just so I can sort out all my sh!t..as in my fishing gear and the sh!t that is in my head.
    cheers

    My reel actually seems a bit heavy shimano TSS4 about a 6000 sized reel, the spacing and positioning of the handgrips feel good probably designed for dwarfs like me, Diawa probably should have called the rod "Sea Dwarf" haha. Should be good for low angle "off the hip" casts like the old rod was but more distance and accuracy and quicker.
    What rod did u just get, I recall you were casting 120 meters whith one but later found out a lot were being returned broken so I didn't look at those rods. The new rod felt better or as good as any other rod I looked at, a long beach rod version of the zodias would be good.

    Blair it is a Shimano maikuru 1062 bit it is top heavy and yes it does belt a 60g lure 120yd well according to my laser range finder .
    The reason it is top heavy is it is rated up 80g lures so it has a thick stiff top half as such it would make a poor bait rod for the likes of lite fish in the surf but if the fish are out a bit it would be the go to rod but for walking up the beach a few km flicking lures I think a 9 footer with the 5000 would make a better choice .

    And on the 1062 the but is 19' from the bottom the the reel stem and the 902 I have is 17'

    For those interested in seeing quality of Akaso EK7000pro action camera:
    some footage of riding my 1977 yz125 at Nowra motocross track, bloke came over and talked to me for while at start and first lap is warming up bike. was happy jetting was finally right, camera angle is right (I think) just need to retard ignition timing a bit to get more power around and out of corners. other bike was aCR480. camera was quite warm when I got back and was in waterproof case. batteries went flat fairly quickly I think camera stabilization was working hard.comes whith 2 batteries and lots of accessories.

    That's it mate, a bit boring till about halfway, I am happy whith the quality and I think the sound will be great when I use it next. I had filthy cold I don't always sound that boganish ha ha. It should be usefull for tuning my bike I will be able to hear how the engine runs after changes should feel the changes anyway.

    When Honda first entered their road bikes in the Isle of Man TT, to get the edge on their rivals they positioned factory engine mechanics at 1 mile intervals around the course to listen to the bikes as they went past at incredible speeds (200mph plus) and if they detected a change in sound they would phone back to the pit area so that the engines could be tweaked to give maximum performance. Considering that this happened before mobile phones existed, they had to run temporary phone lines around the entire circuit - 37.73 miles.

    I like Ugly Stiks, a very under rated rod in my opinion. Never used any of the Bluewater range, but I've got a 7' Platinum and a 6'6" Gold, both good tough rods that will take a beating.

    That's why I like them when you are 16 km offshore it can get a bit lumpy in a 4.2 m tinny graphite rods get to beat up . With ugly sticks the only thing you have to worry about is losing a guide or 2 , l still got Ugly Stik here I bought back in the mid 80s when they first or when I first discovered them great Rod just as tough as a solid but a lot better
