I would like to build the lightest rod that will throw a 4 or 5 oz lure on a shimano stratus 6000. Your help is appreciated, thanks.

The lightest 13-14' rod for throwing 4-5 oz. well once you get over about 12'8" your options drop quick. I would have to say the PurGlas 400-2, 13'2" rated 4-6 oz, will throw from 2-6+ with good distance.

Led, I don't have a scale in the shop so this is completely unscientific, but.... I just compared the weight of a 400-1 blank and a All-Star BGSW1418 and in that requard they are very similar. The wieght of the All-Star 1418 is stated as 10 3/32 oz, so I would put the 400-1 right around 11 oz. I couldn't find mfg. specs on the blank weight of the PurGlas, if I can get my hands on a scale I will post more accurate weights.

I didn't see the 14' Pendulum Distance 222 on their site. Have I over looked it or is it not there?

Anthony,

My fault, it changes it's name dependingupon which page your looking at.

It's under the "Surf Casting Blanks, Tournament" on the page that I posted as a Distance 222.

I'll try and get some pictures of it in Action at this weekends UKSF Masters Final :D

Sorry for the confusion.

Aero; The last thing...

you need is another rod!!!:) If you do get another rod; then sell me one of those used ones you have; the ones that still have the UPC stickers on the handles. They should be sold fairly cheaply; since they have been heavily used.:D Just shoot me an e-mail and tell me which one you want to get rid of!!! pelican man.
