Had a look at these rods in the shop and was really inpressed with the workmanship and feel of the rods.They are super light and slim.I am considering getting either the 5-6 Oz or the 7 Oz.Does anyone have one of these or has anyone tried one out ?

Would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks

The Kingfisher in Durban just got them in last week, the 6/7 and 8oz.

1 piece rods.

Lovely light and nice cosmetics.

I would love to get the 7oz. Ray the sales guy said his mate bought the 6oz and is really happy with his rod.

I've been building a few in the 400 and 430 range and am doing a Grinder (the 50 code)a /6 and a Casting (100 code) a /7 at the moment.

Went and cat them to get a feel and to confirm guide placings etc.

The 50 series has a better compression in the tip and mid section and launches weights and baits with a fixed spool reel

The 100 series for casting is crisp and fast and being so thin really winds up a piece of lead and from what I can feel it will have plenty pulling power because the base of the rod (bottom half) is a good solid lever and will really pull hard

The thin profile makes it to have 30% of the surface area even the thin super mandrel and it allows you to generate awesome tip speed with good backbone to punch a weight.

Nice thick walled blank that will make it robust and stronger than other thin walled blanks.

If you can make the price I believe it will be a great buy and I know it's doing well in the Cape with good catches with it and some rave reviews

Thanks for your input .If I decide to get one of these I will have to decide between the 6 Oz and the 7 Oz. Kinda think the 6 Oz would be more versatile.

I've got the 50/6 and paired it with the Ultegra 14000.
It's an insane combo that throws a mile and has heaps of back bone.

Rudolph @TUCKERS convinced me on a 6oz in the week. Took it out twice already and yes, its easy on the arms, great action - and casts are great... definitely got some extra distance, but that ain't important.

I noticed the slimlines have number like this.
40-100
60-100
80-100

Does 40-100 mean 40% of HMG ?

Do you get a 100-100 ?

Wow that should be one supa awesome rod!

So I take it the code will be read like this.

SS(supa slim) 100( 100% HMG) 100(Dont know what this code means) 430(overall length of the rod)

I wonder what the OZ rating of the 40,60,80?
Can one order various lengths in the blanks?

Bump here........, to let you know what an awesome rod the Blue Marlin SS is.
Never had many days to fish,yet the few times I did I am very pleasantly surprised with this rod. My casting style has improved, releasing at the highest point (rod vertical) I am able to toss the 7/8oz a good distance.

If you are in the market for a 'super' rod, go out and spoil yourself.

Just to get back to the super slims.

The first one I got was a 40/100/400, THREE PIECE
The one piece and three piece curve in the blank is greatly changed by the joints.
It is a personal preference whether you like the softer action of the single piece or the faster action of the three piece.
The rod throws a 4oz to 5oz.
I have loaded it with a 5oz and a whole pillie, and still confidently got the distance.

What stood out for me, was the way the rod re-acted to a fish fighting.
It has a fighting curve that makes you think you starting to loose control, and then the blank comes into action.
The curve is actually applying pressure and with in seconds you have control again.

I estimate it is good for smaller edibles up to 10kg.
A size 16 or 20 reel will fit nicely with the light line.

It makes a great scratching rod especially if you need to scratch around a formation that is 120m out.

Currently I have

Ultra Light 30-50-430 with a lighter T24 tip. Used for long range freshwater with 2-3oz and will be a monster Gallie rod or to cast 3oz with small bait over 150m with 20lbs Braid

40-100-430 Grinder
40-100-430 Multiplier - Same use as Splasher recommends

60-100-430 for 6-7oz plus small bait

80-100-430 for a Stella 20,000. Rod throws a 10oz but rated for 8-9oz with bait.

100-100-400 which I use a Trini 50 on and that pulls a 150kg Pylie Squint on 0.60mm line.

I enjoy the rod's action as it is forgiving in the tip and has monster backbone (all of the models) and they are a pleasure to cast.

From the 60- and up the effect of the spiggot joints are not visible between the 2 rods (1 piece and 3 piece)

Currently I am building 8 for Australian customers and have clients as far a Japan fishing with the rods.

Worth the money you pay but be warned they are not cheap and should not be fitted with cheap heavy components.

The xxx-100 range have a T53 (40ton carbon base) T53 (36ton carbon mid and tip)

The xxx-50 range have a T53 (36ton base) with a T53-24 mix into the tip and a slightly thicker up the rod and weigh a bit more (on the 60-xxx-430 its around 80gr difference)

The xx-50 is slower in action but casts the same rating.

The next size up is the 60/100/430, THREE PIECE.

There is a noticeable difference in weight, as there is two heavy duty spigots inserted in the joints, adding a bit of weight to the mid and tip.

The single piece on the other hand is as light as a feather.
The action is also changed by the spigots. Making the three piece appear to have a faster action than the single piece.

Casting the three piece is a breeze!
The rod loads positively and there is no feeling of overloading.
I loaded it with a 7oz sinker and a whole pilchard or trimmed mullet.
The distance achieved was more than acceptable and you could safely keep up or most likely out do the other big name rods.

My opinion is that this rods is definitely for the larger edibles, spotted gully's, smooth hound. You get the picture!

There is plenty of pulling power to bully that cracker from reaching the razor sharp reef, or turning the rudder on a smooth hound.

The final stand off is the unfortunately the cost.
From what I am told they are one of the most expensive blanks on the market.

They are definitely worth looking at.

The one bait that I put out today, was a 7oz with a 2/o hook (chokka blob with pink prawn).

Huh, when I look at my spool after the cast. It only then hit me how much line was out.

I don't want to say how much was out, but it was definitely a lot more than with my other custom rods.
