Leader sizes 25-30-40-50 & 60#. BFT sizes - sometimes you just don't know. Getting ready for a 3-day on the New Lo-An this November, and hopefully more and longer trips in the future. I have started assembling my quiver, currently have a UC Tilefish Jr. for 25 - 30#, a UC RUS 76HP for 40 - 50#, and an older Calstar 770H for 60#. None of these are "Rail Rods"; they all have ~ 12" foregrips. My gear question is, should I consider extending the foregrip with a couple wraps of cork grip tape, and cover it with cold shrink? The Calstar should be plenty strong enough for use as a Rail Rod with 20# of drag, shouldn't it? It is not clear to me whether the UC GUSA rods are built to handle leverage applied this way... Just wondering the best way to fight a bigger Tuna on lighter line, if I should be so lucky as to have this problem! Do people just put the butt under their arm pit, or do you use the short EVA grip on the rail? Would it be useful to extend the foregrip on my UC rods as well as my Calstar? Final question, if I added another stick, should it be something like a 7'6" Predator (same non-rail design, fits between my 40 and 60), or should I jump up to something like a Raptor (true rail rod, a little more rod than my Calstar)? FYI I am borrowing a "Heavy" rod/reel (130#) for the Flat Fall jig fishing; no need to cover real Heavies in this thread. Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions, I hope this wasn't too many questions crammed into 1 thread. And Yes! I know I am over-processing!
