Hope you don't mind, but I'll offer my opinion in English, my phone is not used to Afrikaans and every time I do use it it autocorrects every second word....

You can build a rod to accommodate multiple reels.
Even rods optimized for one reel more often than not cast most similarly sized reels brilliantly.

I often build for worst case / biggest reel and then it copes with anything I can throw at it.

As an example, my 11' Oval DC 1-3oz has been set up to cope with the following:
1. Spool dia: 60mm
2. Spool height from blank: 95mm
3. Braid: up to 35lb / PE 3.

For giggles I tried it out with an Ultegra 10000 XSC
1. Spool dia 72mm
2. Spool height from blank 105mm
3. Line as above.

Threw like a gun.
Was it perfect?
No.
Was it good?
Hell yes.

Throw it with a Saragossa 20'000 with 100lbs braid. It will not cast at all

Is it the rods layout and braid that's a problem

No that is purely USER incompetence.

Ermmmm.
Now that would be a case of the stupids.
Will I fish the 11' with the Ultegra?
Nope.
It is over choked, you can hear it.

thanks to both of you!!!!!

Getting a rod build to specs is one thing.
Buying from the shelf is another.
Not to move off topic too much, but it would be nice if rods on shelves had a indication to what reel size was considered when the rod was manufactured!

although not braid but:
my brother bought a penn fierce 4000.
he then filled it with 0,36 xx mono.
we then fitted the reel to my daiwa exceller 96xx

throwing a spoon from the boat, we had many line coils on the first guide!
so he gave it too me.
I then re spooled the reel with 0,28mm kingfisher mono.
since then no line coils on the first rod guide.
been using it ever since with the 0,28 mm.

getting a easy 97 meters, dry land on a 45 gram tin s bend spoon.

I thought this question might fit in here as I can't find anything through search.

What is the correct size mono backing to use for braid?  Searching on Google I found the following:  I see some say to match the diameter, others state to go as cheap as possible (on condition that you won't reach the backing with a big one).  Then there are people saying to go slightly heavier on the backing.

I need to spool my BG 5000 and have 40lb braid (300m) and need to have backing as well.  In this case what is a good rule of thumb for backing considering that I will use this reel for saltwater edible and also the occasional smaller inedibles?

Get some JDB 80lbs Braid and spool the braid as backing then fill up with 300m 40lbs.

This way your backing won't break leaving the fish with 300m of 40lbs and the backing will last you 10 years+ without loosing strength
