Tackle Used at Nationals

1625 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Awesome John
I have been asked what tackle I used last weekend, so I thought a post was in order.
Reel-- Ultra Mag III (converted by Hector Hernandez)
Line-- Tight Line from BPS
Rod-- Jeff Andrews (Lightning Bolt) 14' 8"

I used an Ultra Mag II for first 5 cast and switched to the III for the winning cast.
The II was running just a bit slow, of course I did not realize that until after the change.
The reason I changed is no improvement in distance since first cast. I know the II has a lighter spool but the III is the same reel I set the record with 3 years ago.
When you have confidence in your tackle, you
are more apt to do well.
If any one has a question don't hesitate to email me.

Firstly "Congratulations", secondly that's an interesting rod "Jeff Andrews - Lightning Bolt" can you shed some light on this piece of equipment as I'm sure that not many people have heard of it.

What shock leader did you use ?


Thanks for taking the time to post a reply. I'll do a little research to if they are known on the web.

Good Health - Led.
