I need advice on a rod
« on: July 16, 2019, 05:51:11 pm »
Hi guys


I am new to this forum and need some advice on a rod I recently bought
( Assassin Edge Surf spinning 12ft LB 3 piece )
It says its a spinning rod, but would like to know if I can use a multiplier reel on it ( Adrenalin X-Master Gold )
I have a 14ft rod which I use the same reel on for further distance casting, but wanted something a bit smaller for closer casting.

I would like to know if this would work as a combo and if there will be any complications?


Please I would be grateful for any advice

That will depend on you ability to use your right hand to control the reel with left hand at the butt of the rod when casting (assuming you are right handed)

Unusual here in SA to do this, but there are a few of us that cast and fish like this.

Out of interest what is distance from butt to bottom of reel seat on the rod?
