Anyone else have feedback on the GUSA 80 Monster? The thread drifted a bit
The US80Monster is a 40lb max rod I think. It's great for fishing iron or bait it's an all around rod. I fish our BT65s and EX7 light jigs on it but its also my go to 40lb bait rod when fishing live squid or Dines. I only fish 40lb on it.
Hope this helps
Hey CK Thanks man! good to know. That is exactly my plan: good all around #40 rod. Can't wait to hang something on it. Tight Lines
How would a Trinidad 20 look on it
That or a 16
I wouldn't use a 20. For a conventional reel, biggest I would go is a 16, but the Tranx 500HG is what I use.
Plenty of back bone and power, I caught a 40lbs BF last week on my 80 monster , It was paired up with a Shimano Torium .. The torium was loaded with 50# max cuatro with a top shot of 25# seagur ... Took about 10 minutes max
The CE800 Wahoo was actually to whippy to far down the blank for me.
I love my UC's but sold this one .
Although i love parabolic and less faster rods this Wahoo was too soft for 40lb service.
Thanks John. Really appreciate the feedback.
