    Fishing.

    I'm not much of a gear head when it comes to fishing. The only thing i do spend $$ on is fluorocarbon line. It's been kinda proven over and over when i do catch more stuff vs friends. My rod and reel combo costs me like $40 bucks on sale from the local rays outdoors.

    So i've been given a telescopic rod but i can't see any line weight or anything along those lines. Opens out to 5.3m. Any ideas if i can cast it like a normal rod with weights and what's the line weight? I saw people using it at the docks the other day and they were not using weights just a float and line.

    Took me a while to even find this link! Would be great if someone knows anything about this rod.


    Many thanks in advance!

    From what i can work out from the size of the rod approximate line weight from 5-12 KG.
    Hope this helps.

    By your description I would say it sounds like a... Hmmm we have a term for it here but can't really say it incase it offends someone which I would never want to do :s
    Basically you use it just like a pole with a length of line off the end of it to the depth you want with either a float attached or a squid jig or just a unweighted hook.
    When the fish or squid take the bait, you just lift the pole up... Good fun when u hook a trevally or pinkie on them tho some people do have a little reel on them so they can adjust the depth easier...
    So I suppose you could use any size breaking strain line on it...
