Fishing Application and Fishing Rod Suggestion Guide
The CR80, while at an entry-level price range is more than comfortable at handling dominant species like queenfish, barra and saratoga. If it is these northern stars that wet your appetite then consider a baitcaster fishing rod to match with a line rating of 5-8kg plus.
Should you not have these powerful brutes in your area and are forced to settle for a lighter class of fish like bass, perch, trout or flathead then you can easily pick a lighter grade of baitcaster rod to match with the CR80H. In this case, you can easily take comfort in picking a baitcaster fishing rod that rates around 2-5kg or thereabouts.
We range both light and a more oppressive class of baitcast rods for sale in our online fishing store. To find them, head to our search tool and enter in the words baitcaster rod.
The most significant advantage of the CR80H is that you get an incredibly smooth crank supported by seven bearings at a rock bottom affordable price.
Magforce helps prevent to some degree, the dreaded bird's nest. With a little practice, you won't have to deal with backlash as often.
The CR80H is an excellent reel for the saltwater and the freshwater fishing scenes. Those that predominantly fish the salt will love the graphite and alloy construction. While it keeps things light, it also ensures longevity.
The CR80H delivers the casting accuracy and length we all desire. It allows us to get into the tightest of unforgiving structure with total confidence.
7kg of super smooth drag is backed up by a capacity for 110 yards of 12-pound mono, and clearly, you can fit even more in braid for the angler that wishes to spool up with a braided fishing line.
The Daiwa CR80 Baitcaster Reel will be an ideal workhorse for you. From bank to boat, casting manners, power and durability will ensure your CR80H becomes a go-to workhorse for the lions share of your inshore fishing applications.
