Gave the boy 50m of 30lb JOF 4 strand braid to test at the uni. interesting breaks constantly at 32.5lb. Using the uni tensil tester

If you get snagged in a boat drive  up current .
It will often pull out .

What I bought.
Have been looking for a surf caster that will take an overhead reel
Use an okuma mad dog not too impressed too stiff and at 14.6 too long.
Went into land and sea the dude suggested a Okuma soul md .
Adjustable reel seat and can take a over head reel only $300 peso's
Will come back after the weekend to tell you all how it casts and feels.
Next issue is what reel? I can get a Penn 5500 long cast for 250.
Dont need a bigger reel if i go braid .    

He who dies with most toys wins.
