(SUL) Super Ultra Light?

Postby LowRange » Wed Sep 06, 2017 1:02 am

Anyone temped by the Kuying Teton SUL Super Ultra Light? Re-posted from DIY spool thread into a more specific sub forum. Looks like back handed casting, stream lurking UL fun. Comes in a a casting variant even. It'll take balls to answer that BFS call LOL. Too bad I don't have trout filed streams where I live... not that I'm up for the challenge.

Yea, I have the 6' UL and there is no way, even if I had a reel that could do it, that my thumb up to casting lures that light. The UL will load well with a 1/16oz inline spinner, but my thumb is questionable even for that.

I'm waiting to eventually purchase a Light setup, I couldn't even imagine going UL... I rarely go to 1/32 though when using dad's old cheap trout/light tackle and think personally 1/16 is better done with a Light powered rod.

I couldn't put together a better rod for 62.00 shipped like this. I know the build quality is very good. It is a Chinese assembled rod that uses Japanese components.

I own 4 Kuying rods. I have both Teton Trout rods, a UL and a MH/H casting rod. I am a Major craft guy but refuse to leave my high dollar rods at my cabin, so I got these. With Fuji components and a Toray blank they are on par with some M/C rods. I'm sure the SUL will be hella fun for panfish, small bass and trout. It probably will be on par with the Teton Trout spin, whose action I'm not all that fond of. It is kind of noodley.

I have this rod and for what it’s seemed to be designed for and I think I use i5 a# designed, it’s great rod.

I think it’s intended as a version of the Japanese Mountain Stream Baitcasting rods and while it doesn5 have the really exceptional build quality of Japanese rods, the components are much better than you expect for the money.

I th8nk I got the rod on sale, I’m pretty sure I pain less than $45 including shipping for the rod. It took forever to get here, but thst# international shipping for you.

I’ve used it primarily on trout streams an$ small rivers with both Shimano and Daiwa BFS reels, spooled with JDM 4 lb line. ( can’t remember the manufacturer righ5 now)

With the Daiwa, it seems to be “happiest”, allowing me to cast the larger sized Snap Beans pretty accurately, as well as Rapala F3 and F4 sized Minnow plugs. Of course, it casts spinners and spoons down to 1/16 with no problem at all.

My most successful lure, casting with this rod have been the JDM Daiwa Lupin Spoons. They’ve taken trout up to say 14-15” (which is a pretty big fish for here) and smallmouth up to 2+ lb. which was pretty good for th3 small rivers I fish.

IMO! It’s a good buy.

Shipping can be long, especially during the Christmas season. If you order a less busy season, it can be faster, in some cases than shipping than Japan.

If you ordered via AliExpress, you get tracking provided, and a lot of times you have the choice to pay more for quicker shipping.

As to ordering from AliExpress, you often cut out 2-6 middlemen, plus it’s cheaper to boot. And it doesn’t go through so many hands to get to you.

Also, the shipping tracking takes some work to use and get current, correct information.

I’ve had better luck in getting stuff in better shape from China, Japan, SE Asia and Europe than ordering stuff from Amazon. Alas as much of the stuff we buy comes from China, why go through at least two middlemen using Amazon?

If it means anything, of all the stuff I’ve ordered from China, the Tetons came faster than most. Sometimes the tracking software gets “stuck”, and you can copy and paste the tracking number from AliExpress into the EMS linked site and get an entirely different delivery date.

Then again, I’ve Order really small things from elsewhere in Asia, and they had to go from the origination point to Düsseldorf Germany, sit there for two weeks and then get to JFK, sit there for a week, then go to Jamaica, NY and get in the US Postal system. International shipping is getting better, but it still takes a while.

However, I’d still think most couriers are still getting over or in the seasonal rush.

I just ordered the 522 sul casting rod. I have zero experience with rods this light, but I'm looking forward to trying my hand at some stocked trout in local streams this spring. I'm thinking about throwing inline spinners, pins minnows, 1/16 spoons and trout magnets. I'll pair it with either a pizy/diy or t3mx/diy spool.

My 522 handles spoons the best, my favorite so far are the Daiwa Presso Lupin series, which I think weigh 1.5 gr. I’ve cast the 1/16 oz Pins Minnow and the YoZuri L 44 F, Minnow as well as weighed nymphs. I’ve not had success with the trout magnets so can’t address their “castability.” The rod has handled a approx 3 lb smallie and a similar or maybe similar sized spotted bass well, but the fight was exiting.

I have a Daiwa Pixy with a DIY spool, but alas it doesnt cast as well as my favorite small or even midstream reel - the Daiwa SS Air.
