Rod line/lure weight?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some very elementary information. Most all rods are rated for a range of line and lure weight. Can someone tell me what the basis for these ranges are, and the consequences of exceeding the range? Say a rod is rated for 15-30 lb. line, what is the consequence of fishing an 8 or 60 lb. line? Similarly, if a rod is rated 3/8-1 oz. lure, what 's the result of fishing a 1/8 or 1 1/2 lure?
