Hi all,

Last weekend I put out my first swim bait (2kg milk shark) and landed a 63 kg black tail. My equipment was an Assassin beach master heavy with a saltist loaded with 50 Lb braid and 0.50 main line, the fight took me around 45 min.
Needless to say i'm hooked... gone through all the swim bait threads and it would seem that the TLD 50 II Speed Lever Drag is the right reel, but what about the rod???
I am currently looking at 2 rods

1. Poseidon HMG extra heavy 8 - 10 ounce
2. Saltiga surf 8 - 13 ounce

Any thoughts on the above rods? or would an extra heavy Assassin be the way to go.
Most of my swim baits will be 2 - 3 Kg bone fish and possibly some brown rays in the 8 - 10 kg range. Most of the sharks we catch off the beach are in 20 -40 Kg range which might be a bit large to swim.
Any advice on the rods will be appreciated, thanks

Assassin Blade or Poseidon Staffie would be my choices in the Kingfisher range but my personal preferrence is the Absolute Shark (Shark Extreme HEavy)

40-45kg is never to big to swim.

Remember due to the nature of sharks and pack/shoaling behavior one can expect to catch anything the same size to a Giant on a swimbait.

I've seen a 90kg Bronzie swum and a 110kg Blackfin caught on it and seen a 200kg Zambi caught on a 15kg Diamond

Thanks guys, going to look into those rods and the KP's.
I have been told that my current setup is sufficient for swim baiting?
