Suitable rod for Stella 20000

G'Day Guys

Looking for some help and guidance on a rod to suit a Stella 20000. The outfit will need to do a double act as a jigging rod up to 150m on 50 lb braid plus be able to do some bottom bashing for demersals.

I guess the main thing that I am looking for is a lightweight rod that I can use without breaking my back

There is such a range out there that I am struggling to zero in on something suitable. Looking to pay around the $300 or so mark, am I in the ballpark or am I dreaming ? Anybody out there that can assist who is in a similar situation.

Live Fibre Venom pe5-10, matches quite nicely with a 20,000SW. Mind you, a 20,000 Stella is better suited to heavier line classes...

you are in the ball park

one rod I would use for that would be a T curve 200 jig spin, do the job for both. Any lighter may not give you the power wanted for sambos easily, and would be on the heavier side for bottom bashing.


I would check out the Daiwa demon blood too.



then there would be plenty of others too but the above are readily available.

Yeah the 20K is more suited

Yeah the 20K is more suited to heavier lines but 50 lb will work. Another vote on the above for the T curve. The T curve deep jig 200 spin is perfect for what you want to do with it and in the price range.

Hey mate, I just went through

Hey mate, I just went through the same thing and ended up going for the Live Fibre Venom PE5-10.  Haven't actually used the combo yet, but it balances up very nicely.  Got it for around $400, so may be just be a bit over your budget.
