hi lockdown friends

what rod is the best for fishing paddletails , bucktails etc from a jetski and boat

I have not fished with soft plastics before. I am looking to buy a shimano stradic fl 5000 reel which I would use for the surf as well

I have already bought a okuma nomad travel 10 feet rod for the surf

all advise is appreciated

Shimi Trevala... Bullet proof blank and decent guides at a reasonable price.

dankie vir die terugvoer. ek sien daar is baie trevala modelle. enige spesifieke een wat jy aanbeveel

natuurlik wil n mens die stok so kort as moontlik he vir die jetski

is die trevalla n lekker stok vir braid(minimum kraaineste)

ek is n mono man en hierdie sal my eerste braid poging wees

ek is nou al so lus vir visvang ek begin myself jammer kry

I would suggest the TVS66MH. After the first fish, you're going to wonder why you didn't start using braid a looooong time ago. Feels so much better with a fish on the end.

What do you think of the Nomad?

with too much time on my hand during the lockdown I started watching you tube videos

that is how the world of paddle tails entered my life. I am a bait fisherman and soft plastics and bucktails were not even in my thoughts

I bought the okuma medium heavy a week ago so I haven't used it but most off the you tube reviews are crazy about it

"this rod has Fuji Alconite K-guides. The guides are not perpendicular to the rod, but are "bent" upwards toward the rod tip (looks like the letter "K" in profile). In fact, I thought the rod guides were bent until I saw the Fuji tag. They claim it helps reduce line tangles"

the above is also one of the reasons why I bought the rod. ek soek nie kraaineste nie. wil see if that helps
