    Hi guys, been fishing since I was a kid and and have been getting more serious about it recently. At least to the tune of retiring my cheap gear and picking up some decent equipment.
    So I recently picked up 2 Californian Tri-Helix deck hand wrap rods. One of them is the 25-60 lb and the other is the 15 - 40 lb. I want to use a Cork Puppy or something other than the stock reel clamps. How do I determine which Cork Puppy to order? There are 3 sizes, and I don't have any calipers to get an accurate measurement. Do any of you know which size puppy I need to buy?

    And just to toss it out there, I am putting a PENN JigMaster on the 25-60 lb rod and a Daiwa 40 on the lighter weight rod.

    Thanks in advance.

    take a piece of string, go around the circumference of the butt where you want to set the reel, mark it where it meets, measure the length, divide by 3.14 for the diameter.

    They have some adjustment to them.

    The Longfin has them. I thought there were several different sizes. I picked one, took it home, didn't fit. Took it back and they happily exchanged it for a smaller size.

    Pi are round.

    Or just adjust a crescent wrench to the rod and then measure across the jaws. But Cork puppies are sized in mm so remember to use a metric crescent wrench........

    Typically a 10 to 25# rated rod is a 25mm, 15-30 to about 30-60 are 28mm and your big jig rods like a 90 or 100j or Ulua or baby Ulua are the 31 mm size.

    I'd guess a 28mm for both.

    UnReel has it nailed. All my deckhand rods have 28mm Cork pups on them.

    Me too. My 875h has a 25, 800xh a 28, and my 90j has a 31. All are strait corktape with no x rap. They work best when they hug the sides as well
