Finally hooked a decent fish on this combo and got to put it through a decent work out.
Klabs 24t 20lb rod was a pleasure to use. Plenty of grunt n lots of flex for those big runs. I enjoy flicking softies n poppers on this rod, as its so light I dont get tired.
Shimano stradic ci4 4000 had enough drag and was super smooth. I was strayling a whole squid with bail arm open n once engaged it just purred.
The fish while only just legal, put up a decent scrap in 6m, with blistering runs, and got released :)
Big ups to klabs :rock:
