Same m/mf rods but different rating?

Recommended Posts

Hi members!


I am shopping for a moderate fast action rod, intending to use for crankbait and possibly other moving baits.


I came across 2 lews custom speed stick. (LJBS and LSPS model).


Both are listed as Medium power, MF action. The rest of spec are as below..


1. LJBS 6’7”, 1/4 - 3/4 lure, 8-14 lbs line


2. LSPS is 6’10”, 3/16 - 5/8 lure, 10-20 lbs line


I am trying to understand why the line and lure specs are so different, between seemingly similar rod, other than minor 3 inch difference in length, or is length a major influencing factor?  Or is there other design difference..? Or could it be just marketing tactic? 


I would think line rating and lure rating go together, but apparently thats not the case, as LJBS model has heavier lure limit, despite lower line rating. So I am puzzled...


Any explanation for this? I appreciate any input!
