Thank you for remembering me the fineness of UL baitcasting / BFS !
I must test that Avid what’s the casting performance of it with ~2g. But sure is that, it’s not UL rod.
I have one cheap Patriot Jig-it, which is capable of light lures. But it’s 6 feet rod and dimensioning of 2-piece grip is wrong (and because of that I don’t like it and I don’t use it). I’m planning modifications to this rod. Maybe 1’ extension of (Excel?) carbon fibre tube and whole new reel seat and grips…
Or maybe I finally begin to make my rods from blancos.
But firstly I must try that Avid with ~2g and to think that might I like this kind of fishing.
