I wish...as in, I wish I had a boat.
I have a line on a Truline 1080, in regards to damaging an old rod, do you guys feel it would be safe to fish, given it is not damaged or splintered, and fishing within limits?

I do not want to spend that much cash on a rod to hang on the wall, I want to fish it, but also do not want to buy a rod that I have to worry about damaging with normal, practical use.

I really like the way it felt when pulling, anybody know the best line range to use, it felt good for 30-50#.

Thanks, Scott.

Truline 10-80 is a light octy also what would help is it green glass or red.

most greens are usually 7'5 or 7'6 a few 8 footers

this model octy is at most a 20lb rod a few pushing 25 great chovy rod

the heavier model would be the 25-80 a 30lb rod
