Grand wave 40? With what 12 foot rod?
« on: February 22, 2014, 07:02:00 AM »
Hi guys, I am looking for a new medium 12 foot set up, I have my eye on the grand wave 40 reel but not too sue on which rod to match it with.

I prefer a 3 piece . I've seen a G3 series blue marlin that looks pretty neat for what I want ,but would welcome any feedback.

If you have good or bad reports on the grand wave 40 would welcome that too.

What other similar quality, priced reels would you consider.?

Thanks guys look forward to your feedback

Thank fabba,

If you were buying a rod would you go for the blue marlin?

New generation Blue Marlin rods is highly rated yes, so personally i dont think its a bad buy if it fits your budget.Waynew..i think with a 12ft one will lean more towards targeting eds.Although as you know one will encounter now and then a in-ed but i think the combo (suggested will be ready for the odds).

My son ,one day landed a 22kg Smoothy on his 13ft and SL30 combo with ease.Your combo will be perfect for reef fishing,targeting Galjoen,Das,Stumps ect.

Bear in mind that this combo will not be suited for distance casting with medium/large baits.

Thanks guys, yes I'll be using the 12 foot for eds, I have a 14 ft technium for the big boys.

Ok you've sold me on the combo, 12 ft G3 blue marlin , but with the SL30 instead of the grandwave40

Thanks guys.... Now to get myself to the store to buy them...
