Hello from Greece,
My name is Theodoros and I want ot buy an EGI Rod. But I want your help before I was do it.
I want to help me to buy an Eging Rod and an Eging Super PE Line.
First of all.
I was fishing squid for many years and I was use my spinning rod CROSTAGE HARD ROCK CRS-762M/S but I was see in Japan use special rod for squid fishing, and I want to try this me to. But What different have this Eging Rod from other spinning rods?? What make them special for squid fishing?? I can use them and for lure fishing??
I want to help me to buy an Egi rod. The Egi size I most use is 2.5 sometimes I was use 3.0 and in very very special time I will use 3.5. The most of squid jig I have is at 90% 2.5 Egi size. The length of the rod that I prefer to use it will be between 2.40m and 2.60m no more from 2.60meters it was too long for me, the best I believe it will be at 2.50meter.
And the Other question is about Eging Super PE line. In squid Fishing I was use monofilament line because it was sinking and give me pliancy , elasticity to avoid tearing the tentacles of squid. Many times I did use the common spinning PE Braid Line problem I had was that the PE Braid Line was floating and not allow the jig to sink and move correctly, but also if I had forthwith nailing many times I could not make the whole squid but only a piece of its tentacles.
My question is has something different one Eging Super PE line???
I was find some rods in the market in my buget and i want your help.
Does anyone use one of this.
I would like to thank you in advance for your time and for your help.
Best Regards from Greece,
