Wilson Fishing has been producing outstanding rods for decades. The company was founded in 1946, and has since expanded to become one of the principal fishing equipment companies in Australia. Wilson understands Australian fishing conditions so enable the company to create fantastic fishing rods suited to Australian locations.
Within the Australian Beach and Rock Series, there is an ideal option for catching heavier species when surf fishing or rock fishing. The MT8144 is the heaviest rod in the range, featuring a line rating of upto 12kg. While using this fishing rod, you will be able to chase Australian salmon, Tailor, Mulloway, bonito, cobia, snapper and kingfish as just a couple of examples where this rod will excel.
The MT8144 is similar to its fellow rods from the range in lighter classes, as it has a length of 12 feet and can be dismantled in two pieces. But don’t be fooled by the similarities, as this rod is much more powerful. When dismantled, the rod can easily be stored in cars and trucks for long journeys.
Moving on to the components, the guides and fittings are remarkably durable for such an affordable heavy rod. The rod has been built with a Kilwell blank capable of standing up to the brute force of heavy species while still remaining flexible and sensitive. When buying an MT8144, choose the low mount version if you fish with Alvey reels and a medium mount for spinning reels.
