Fishing Applications and Fishing Rod Suggestion Guide

Abu Black Max spin 20 size reel is that little finesse reel that you will come to love for estuary, lake, stream and harbour fishing for a wide array of light target fish species such as the likes of bream, trout, perch, bass, whiting, flathead and a whole lot more. Some suggestions we can provide is to fish this reel with a 6-7ft rod that has a line rating anywhere in the vicinity of around 2-5kg. We have plenty for sale here at Fishing Tackle Shop.

The 30 size is just that touch bigger – not by much but sees an increase in either line capacity or line weight size that can be used therefore stick along the same lines by choosing a rod around 6-7ft in length but with a line rating anywhere from 2-6kg.   Choose a graphite rod if you want sensitivity and feel and like to use a lot of lures or for the novice or bait angler fibreglass / eglass style rods like Uglystik rods make good choices.

These are our suggestions of course this is purely a guide so feel welcome to go you own way. If you do require some assistance in rod choice just get in touch with us.
