Stepping Into Uncharted Waters.

Recommended Posts

So I've made my mind up on a swimbait rod (TBC710HF). Max weight ill probably use is about 3oz for lures. Whatbsize shimano reel should I get and what would be a good line size to spool it with?

the curado 300/301e are awesome if  you can find a good used one.  sometimes you can find some deals on them too.

I have the tbc710hf with a Calcutta 300d and 20lb CXX. It's great for anything I've tied on including 8 inch savage line through swim baits and down to spinnerbaits that may have been an ounce total. Why are you going with the punchin rod instead of the swimbait rod?

I HATE ROUND REELS.

So, if you are like me a Curado 300 would be the choice in the more "modern" line up. For swimbaiting I have a Citica 200DSV spooled with 17 lbs Big Game.

300 Curado or Cardiff is are both good swimbait reels that will handle what you're wanting to throw.

Actually use a 200 curado e with that rod, 20lb fluro/mono

Have a 301e, it's just too big for me to use but it's still a very nice reel, looking to get rid of it.
