Advice please

Post by jackdaniels » Sat May 23, 2015 5:09 pm

Hi guys, I'm currently looking for a multiplier rod as recently got a penn 525 mag 2.

Im currently using one 16ft penn affinity twin tip with a fixed spool penn affinity 8000

And a 16ft greys Triplex with another penn affinity 8000 (both loaded with braid)

I fancied a change and thought I should have at least 1 multiplier set up in my kit. I haven't used a multiplier before but I'm a fast learner (at things I'm interested in) so im confident in mastering the technique of using one.

The thing is iv got 2 rods I'm happy with for distance from the beach. I'm thinking maybe I should get a shorter rod at about 12-13ft that's strong for rough ground work and can be used where there's less space for large rods. Anyone recommend any quality rods that would work well with the penn 525??

Thanks for your time.

I have no hesitation in recommending a Daiwa Supercast 13 ft for what you have in mind. Not too expensive but tough as old boots and you can have a FS or Multi version. One of my mates has one and you can belt it as hard as you like without fear of failure.

I have purchased a 13ft Daiwa Supercast power multiplier :)

I can't wait to get practicing with my penn 525 mag :)

ive just learned to cast with a mag 2 i have mine set with the mags between 4 and5 if you put your finger on the spool and move from side to side it should only be able to move it slightly if you spin the spool and count slowly it should spin till you count to 3

Hi Roy, iv yet to try it as waiting for my Multiplier rod to be delivered. I will set the mags between 4 and 5 and give it a go. I mainly got it for rough ground and am loading it with 30lb line so I'm not expecting it to cast far.
