To sum it up, think beach, rock and offshore boat for this reel and as such we suggest the following (as a guide). For beach fishing the Clash 6000 or 8000 sized reel will generally fit well with most surf rods around 10 to 14 feet in length, for a happy medium grab a 12 foot. For The rocks you could use these reels on either a heavy popper rod for casting poppers at kings or trevally or a 9-10ft rock rod. From the boat there will be plenty of boat rods to choose from in the range of 6kg through to 24kg weights. (You need a spin rod – so make sure you don’t use an overhead rod). If you need further help simply contact us.
♦ The 6000 and 8000 are masters of the beach and Rock. Drift the surf gutters with gang hooks and Pillies or throw a Live Yakka at a kingfish from a rock platform with ease.
♦ Whether you choose to use Mono or braid, you have plenty of line capacity should your hook up decide to treat you with contempt and head determinedly in the other direction.
♦ Boaties will have the luxury of setting the 8000 to troll for Mack’s, or cast really big poppers to see the surface break on strike.
♦ With this size of fishing reel you can cast some really big lures. One thing we know for certain is that big lures attract big fish.
♦ Don’t be afraid to cast a little worm into a gutter while using your 8000. You’ll still feel every Whiting enquiry but also by well place to try and tackle the Jew that grabs it instead.
