I wish I would have found these BEFORE I bought other rods, I LOVE THE CARNAGE SERIES! I need help with a choice, I need a new rod to put my new TRQ25NLD2{finally a small 2 speed} can you get me the braid line ratings for thesse? carbw 700ml, 700m, carbw 1525c70lb, 2040c70lb and what would you like? I will use it for bait, jigs, for Dorado, Wahoo, YT, small tuna but with the drag ratings on this one I don't think they have to be that small, I have 60lb threadlock on it. I have a 700H but it's too heavy

I have always been and will be a PENN man,

50S{tiburon frame}, 30VSX, 16 VSX, 12T{Tiburon frame}, 12W{accurate frame} TRQ25NLD2, TRQ200, Cal has seen most of my reels too..... YES I need to make a Penn trip! Make it the Polaris Supreme next, 8 days Sept 2015

Good eye!
I never noticed that the braid ratings are not in the online catalogue.
Both the 700ML and 700M have a braid rating of 30-65.
Will have to check on the other two [don't have them on hand].
Don't forget that the LB1525 and LB2040 are "slick butt" models.
Overall I like the 700M best with the TRQ25NLD2.

I have seen both printed somewhere but I don't know where? I forgot that casting was what I wanted to do, would the 700m work?

OK, the braid ratings on those two other rods are 20-50 and 30-65 respectively.
The 700M is an excellent all-around rod for live sardines, live squid, or small mackerel, although its a bit heavy for anchovies.
With jigs, it will do very well with small to mid-size yo-yo jigs, but at 7 feet just isn't long enough for surface iron, and is not quite stiff enough for wahoo bombs.

+1 on the carnage rods.

I have a trq100 (star) on a 700ml... awesome combo. put the spank on 4 BFT up to 40lb (maybe 50lb) with it last year back to back to back to back.
