Even better,,,back it up with 20 lb regular pink ande and then tie in 125 yards of 20 or 30 lb Berkely Crystal Fireline on the end side for casting. Unless your a real pro caster, you will never cast more than 125 yards into the ocean surf wind.Put some Ande Tournament Mono on it,will work great for the Surf.
9' is the perfect jetty size rod but a little too short to allow for long distance metal-slinging in the surf. If you have two spools, I would put 15 lb mono on one spool for the surf, and 30 lb braid on the other for the jetty...Just received a new reel and rod a Penn 450 ssg and a 9ft St Croix Triumph surf rod. Need to know what type of line would be best. Will be used for surf fishing. Thanks
