Here is some pics of bent UC rods with different drag loads. If anyone has any pics of other bent rods on fish or on land post them! Hopefully these can be helpful to someone in some way, looking to purchase a new rod or something

Outstanding. That CE Monster line rubbing the grip?
Yes it will rub badly with a fathom 15ld2 or a lexa 400 on it. It will even rub with a fathom 25n. I don’t know why they put the stripper guide that high up the blank. It has the Same guide layout as the us 80 predator. I always either use a 15ld2 or lexa 400 on that stick so I added another guide just above the fore grip to eliminate the rubbing problem

    Brother....GREAT Idea.... and thread post. May I suggest removing the scribbled descriptions.... and use a more suitable "text" alternative. (Even posting the pictures and typing in the descriptive text manually....)

    Then it WOULD BE "Sticky" for sure. Great post.... just needs to be cleaned up a little to become "official".

    Without the writing on the picture, I forget how much drag is being pulled. Typing is a good idea I just need to find out how. Do you know of any apps I can download?

    I was going to get a ce monster before I seen this, I wonder if the 8' Delmar would alleviate the issue? The 9' Wahoo looks really close also?Probably be a 20a or 25n for the winch. Thanks for taking the time to do this, does anyone know, does the 6480h have the same spacing and similar pull as the ce monster??

    My buddy has a CE 9' monster and the line rubs the blank at 8lbs with a tranx 500.

    Would have to be done on your computer. Upload the pics to email then transfer them to a Editing software and do what you need to do...

    With a fathom 25n The line will rub with the monster But it won’t with the wahoo. The wahoo is a legit 50# stick that has a lot of backbone And doesn’t bend as much into the handle as the monster. The monster is unique, it feels a little heavy for 30# line But a little light for 40# line. the 800 delmar is a beast and I think the longer delmars are stronger
