So which do you guys think is the better choice? I am sure going over 1/4 or 1/2 ounce over the lure weight rating probably won't do harm to the rod as long as I am careful but I feel that that rule of thumb is directed toward "softer" rods, unlike the CarbonLite. So I am bit uneasy saying the stiff CL won't snap while using a heavier lure b/c I feel it might not handle overloading the lure weight rating. Anybody have used or think heavier SBs on either one of these rods will work?
Which rod is your recommendation?
Other rods in the similar price range and features are accepted and appreciated.
Thanks a bunch, guys.
If the CL is not on sale then it is twice the cost of the Tourney Special. I would go with the TS and spend the difference on more SBs.
so what do you think is the Smoke rod worth the extra 80 bucks?
Great rod man I have had mine for a week and it is amazing.
