Had some good weather out at Neah Bay this past weekend.
Landed a 24lb ling on my CG-90DR and thought it handled it well.
I run Penn 310GT's on these rods.
However, after rebaiting and resetting I had a double header on and
ended up landing a 45lb and a 50lb halibut on the same CG-90's.
Rods were well past their rated working load but seemed to have
juuuust enough power to lift them off the bottom and milk them to the
Just wanted to let you guys know that these old CG-90's have earned
some serious respect from the fellas on my crew and myself too.
They are going to be retired to backup rods after Kings and Silvers this
year in favor of a pair of XCC 1064's.
Also boated a couple decent Hali's @ 53lbs and 82lbs on your WC-5610
as well. That rod whooped em with ease. Great action on that blank.
Only question I have on the 5610 is: Why isn't the 1st guide farther back on the blank?
I noticed when a big hali runs back down and loads the rod, the line will lay down and
touch the front of the grip. More importantly, my hand.
Thanks for building quality rods I can afford guys!
