Hi guys,


I was wondering if someone could answer a few questions I have about this rod. I really like the color scheme with the green/brown as it matches my camo avet really nicely, and I have heard alot of good things about its performance.

First off can someone please convert the power pro ratings to mono ratings? I am totally lost trying to figure out what size rod I need. :/

And second, which model comes with the fuji dpsh heavy duty style reel seat?


Thanks in advance,

Lucky 13

I have been on their website and tried that, but it still doesn't make sense to me. For example a 65-200 rod would convert to a 16-50. I have never heard of a 16-50 usually its 15-20, 20-40, and 30-50. So is there a better way to convert this? Maybe someone from shimano?

Typically you will reduce by 35-40% of the braided line rating. For example a rod rated for 20-50 braided line is good for 15-30 mono.
