Synit Deepshot Seriola - OH static load tests 10-27lb with *new images*

The first 4 are Sam C with the Synit Deepshot Seriola with 10, 15, 21 and 25lb weights, SOM L120 model's own as they say.

The next 5 are me with the same rod, shot in front of the wall instead of the gate. Its loaded with 10, 15, 20, 24 & 27lb across the snaps.

looking good Sam but against a white background would give a better guide. Hopefully we can water test next week sometime.

That would be a little too

Thu, 2010-11-25 07:09

That would be a little too much rod for a TAC8, more like the TAC20II, Accurate BX-2 30N or SOM L120. Its rated max pe10, best pe5-8, max drag 22kg, best drag 8-18kg.

 

I think they're around $750NZ?

A nice shark should put a good bend in it Jamie. You'll have to sit back and start bending those legs a bit more.

Acid & Antacid wrap.

Thu, 2010-11-25 18:28

Synit certainly didn't originate spiral wrapping, but certainly they did extend the concept. At the minimum, it prevents tip wrap.

 

They claim that their bizzare guide array not only helps prevent tip wrap, but helps line lay as well. The small stripper keeps it pretty central, the oval guide zeros the angler introduced by the spiral and the rest is pretty regular acid wrap.

 

Keen to give it a go when the weather breaks and there are some big sambos around to hit it.

No Aus agent as yet, so first and somewhere around $750NZ, depending on build options.

bend test

Thu, 2010-11-25 19:38

I needed to put a bit more bend in it, hard to gauge when you're just picking the weights up and not taking the pics. Plus, unlike Sam, I had to worry if my gut was sticking out.

 

I thought my black/grey outfit complimented the NZ heritage excellently ;)

Jamie, 27 lb isn't even 15kg of drag. When are you going to start stacking some real weights on there?

Thu, 2010-11-25 20:26

ok , the rods can hold that weight but how would they stack up against a 30 40 or 50 kg fish or shark. a rod can perform totally different when loaded up with a big fish if the drag hasnt been set up right

Thu, 2010-11-25 20:32

Static load tests are designed to show other anglers the progressive curve of the blank and taper of the blank at certain weight increments.

Thanks Sam, not just a pretty face!

 

I ran out of weights and lets face it, you're seeing what the rod is going to do at load with 27lb on it!

 

In fact, to quote Synit's Graeme Paterson;

If you wish to go 15kg that's fine but if you want to go to the max drag setting of the rod we recomend to use a fish simulator rather than a dry lift test as we have found flaws in dry lifts for max drag tests. We are lucky and have access to a $20,000 simulator at Decoro's in Tauranga,  it will simulate anything from a 30kg Kingfish to a 300kg Marlin so we can rate our rods on fish not anchors. On the test machine you are positioned away from the machine so you get the correct line angles verses the position of the angler, they are the great machines and this one will test angler, rod, reel and line at the same time.

Im a big fan of Synit rods

Thu, 2010-12-02 11:50

Im a big fan of Synit rods as they have proven to be extremely versatile. Got lots of high end sticks in my quiver but the Synit always makes the trip with me. Can't wait for the next generation of rods from Synit.

Not sure about jigging rods, but I believe they have some soft bait rods coming out next?

Jamie Synit has two series of jigging rods before the Deepshot. He has a Synit Venom series and before that is that is the Grey Ghost Series.

I see the Venoms on the US sites, I wasn't sure if Synit was running them and the Deepshots together for the different markets.

The Venom Is an older series

Fri, 2010-12-10 07:45

The Venom is an older series, the Deepshot is more parabolic compared to the Venom and there is no Kevlar butt reinforcement, instead there is a 3K carbon weave running 2/3rds up the blank. This gives the Deepshot more lifting power and allows you to run more drag than the Venoms.
