    Dan ... I haven't seen one of these in the flesh but hooking online it appears to be part of their lrf range of rods. Given its casting weight I can see it being a light weight piece of kit.

    I guess it would depend on the size if Pollock you would be targeting on it. Smaller fish down the sides of rocks etc would probably be fine but I wouldn't wanna be targeting the bigger fish on it from the shore. I've been smashed a few times up Scotland using a 15-50g plugging rod and have actually gone for a heavier rod 28_80g rating to give me more of a chance if landing em.

    it is for bigger fish but fishing with lighter soft plastics and jigs as some of the heavier rods ive used, lose the feel of the lure when fishing with weedless setups down to around 10g

    I'm sure it'll be ideal for that kind of setup dan... Just not too sure how well it'll cope trying to get a big one up from the bottom and landed.

    I have the lighter rockfish like Andy, great sport with a little 1000-2500 reel.. Hooked a 3lb 8oz Pollack on a tiny jig head and had to play it for about 10 minutes, it was an awesome scrap, also had a few good wrasse on it too..

    Cant wait to see Dan hook an 8 pounder on it then. I still laugh regular about the night he got a pollack on his fly rod. Took him 30 mins to get it off the bottem, but the lad wouldnt be beat.
