What is the casting weight of the rod? You would likely be better off buying a purpose built casting rod.

cast weight is 100-200 Gram 3.5-7 OZ
i like the action for it and its not available here to purchase this kind of rods and i dont like to take rods from online coz i like to feel the rod before take it

Faiez,


Its possible.
Just sent you a PM
Will be happy to guide you in the right direction as to what to purchase and where/how to fit them.
You can set up a rod so that it throws both a multiplier and a spinning reel
