PE5 would even handle most

PE5 would even handle most Sambos fine. Reasonable price tag too, EEEASY to hold onto with locked drags, none of that sore back pulled overboard nonsense of less-well designed rods; it only seemed to me to lack lifting power.

A good workout over a few more fish shall tell =)

Trade your T-curve in for one Brendan, you can really keep cranking the drag down on your newly-owned stella and handle it comfortably.

Yes but

Yeah but for my young bloke the PE5 rod would be perfect , as I don't see him using much more than 30 or 50 lb braid for a while yet , after using Al's little 4500 Saltiga he has gone from a shimano man to a Saltiga man , might try and see what I can afford for his Xmas present this year.

I have been using the PE5 with 4500 Salty and it is one sweet 30/ 50 lb combo AND it casts a lure and popper nicely so it's not just a jig rod , I would love to have it on my boat when we go to EXXY next , recon it would be awesome out at the islands .

CHEERS , MAV.
