    I bought one of the 30-50 rods for my Tiagra 16 to fish 22-25lbs of drag (at strike)with.... (60#flouro).

    My question is: do these rods run on the light or heavy side of thier rating? I

    With those drag expectations you're closer to a 80# stick than a 50#.

    uh-- I think I hear a POP in my future!! Dangit! Thank goodness it was pretty cheap!

    Will get those pics of the jiggin rod loaded next week when I have someone here to take them... will get some of this rod with the same weight on it.
