Fishing Applications and Fishing Rod Suggestion Guide
The 2500 and 4000 cover the vast majority of inshore work. The smaller option covers finesse fishing for everything from trout, to bass, whiting, bream and more. It’s an ideal model for light soft plastics and smaller hard bodies.
The 4000 is an inshore general-purpose workhorse that you can cast at anything. Ideal land-based or afloat, the 4000 can tackle a much larger class of fishing from the inshore waters. We like it for chasing big flatties with live poddy mullet. Expect interest from flathead over the 60 mark.
Barra anglers looking for serious sport at an affordable price will love the 4000 Tactical, as will mangrove jack hunters. It’s also an excellent option for casting metal slices at late-arvo tailor well over the chopper size. Ideal from the break walls, you’ll also have plenty of sport should bonito or frigate take a liking to your metal slice.
The 6000 is a staple for the beach and rocks. You have all the power you need to tackle the biggest of Aussie Salmon and greenback tailor. With 22 pounds of max drag, you’ll have enough stick to put some hurt into a Mulloway.
It’s an excellent option for medium-sized pelagic species from the rocks, and there’s enough power for the biggest of pigs and groper. Live baits and pig hard body lures are no issue for the 6000.
The 8000 is designed to dominate the surf and rocks, particularly for the larger visitors like kings and big Jew. You’ll love it outside the heads for tackling reef species like trevally and the biggest of snapper. And it’s great for the likes of mackerel, mahi mahi and other sport fish.
