Am looking to build a new rod for casting lures into the surf and off the rocks, rod length between 8ft 10in and 9ft 6in.
Lure weights between 1/2 to 2 /2 ounces, line weight 12 to 20 lb, reel of choice ABU 5500 CT with a 6.3 to 1 ratio, rod needs to be 2 piece and it will have a low reel seat position (9-15in from butt of rod.
Thinking a salmon or steel head blank might do, but a lot of these quote a heavier line class than I use and if look down to the line weight I use, can't find the lure weights.
I am based in Victoria, Australia.
Any help would be appreciated.
