Majorcraft Sky-Road 802el

Post  squid inc on Tue May 28, 2013 6:07 am

So i bought this rod as a temp rod till july..I got some nice squid on it the other night and find it a fantastic rod good action and loads nicely when casting the fujiK/R concept guides are great and would highly recomend them for anyone thinking of a new rod i know i wont buy another rod without them at least till something better comes along.Also the double lock nut reel seat system is great..
Now ive got a problem in that ill have to find a better rod to replace my temp rod which aint gonna be easy....If any one knows of a very good egi rod that loads up good with K/R guides let me know..

Andy is probably the man for that.All i use is interlines.I like the Emmas with the K guides.Could be an option.Or the Shimano Sephia JP model.But that just me.

I just sold my ema st86m as i didnt like it.Its a bit on the solid side for me and i found the K guides format wasnt right and had a lot of tangles useing it thats why i went for R guides which made a huge improvement no line issues at all.I was a bit sceptical at first but i thought id give it a go as i was sick of wasting expensive braid and now im converted to K/R's..The set up on the skyroad has the three reducer guides and then the rest are the same size micro guides which is how it should be i think and the ema's have all different sizes all the way along the blank..I might just keep the sky road yet and maybe just buy another one in the medium..Ill try to find something with titanium K/R concept guides i think..

Hi Nige

All have k guided rods but only if you budget allows and you also gotta factor in shipping

Thanks Andy but im saying K/R guides which is a longer version of the K guides holds line further away from the blank to reduce line slap and the line doubleing around and noosing the guides...as far as budget is concerned breaden is out of the question....
