Went plugging with a rod with old fashioned Fuji NLGs the other day .... wow had I forgotten how terrible a rod can be when not setup properly :rotfl


I'm sure Cage is going to love this stick

Cage, I recently bought an ocea plugger for YF and GT, but I'm worried that it won't handle decent fish. The Ocea BB seems to have much more tip stiffness and backbone. What has your experience been?

for me its exactly what i want it to be... a plugger...Its def not a big fish stick nor does it have the action to make it a popping or large stickbait rod.  its a small stickbait (upto 100g) and plugging stick throwing 2-4oz on PE5....
