Shimano Talica 16 and Alutecnos Gorilla 12V with the 350g Conventional, Spiral Rods.
"I've caught a lot of fish on this setup, chunking and jigging. 60 / 65 Braid. To me, this is the ideal rod for our area.
A 250g Conventional Rod with an Accurate 870 or 500 is a great lighter setup as well. We landed bluefin to over 100 lb on this combo a few times this year.
The 350g is perfect for what I do the way I do it. If I had to choose one, 350g it would be."
