    Here's a video for you to see the 90-degree test in action.

    The video shows the Power 3 rod pulling on 55lbs, yet it's "rated" for PE3 max (0.28mm). If I'm not mistaken, the PE3 equivalent in the USA is 30lb PowerPro or 40lb Maxcuatro, both 0.28 diam. On the west coast, we normally set drag at 30% of the line's stated breaking strength. So, 40lb Maxcuatro = 12lb of drag. Clearly something's different. Does everyone fish at 100% of the line rating or breaking strength when SPJ? Is this how the rod ratings are determined?

    Hi Putter! A dead lift in a controlled environment is totally different than in fish fighting conditions. These dead lifts are just the rod company showing what the rod can lift in a perfect world but definitely not recommended, and do not try this at home. That video is showing a much greater angle than 90°. It is never recommended or a good practice to put your fishing rod in a “U” position with or without fishing. I would not set my drag for 100% of my line strength even if the reel is capable. That is just waiting for something to give. It could be the line, the rod or maybe you letting go not being able to hold on.

    Its how UTS rod ratings are determined, tested to destruction............not quite as per the vid.
    quality manufacturers typically provide 2 ratings 90 deg & 45 deg..............they are rod angles to the vertical
    ie 90 deg is horizontal.
    Having determined average UTS ( failure) the company then reduces the numbers to a safe maximum working load & that is what you see in the specs.
    That doesn't mean the rod is normally worked at that level.............the rod is typically worked at 30% minimum terminal line strength............sometimes the minimum terminal strength is the mainline, sometimes the leader..... sometimes those levels are more than the drag on the reel can deliver reliably....... a lot of the time they are more than the angler can sustain.!!!!!!!!
    Really skilled light line anglers can operated above 60% ..............at those levels you are really risking every join,knot & scratch in your line.
    FWIW

    If you want to sell rods,
    you need to bring PRO STAFF onboard
    to build your reputation.
    In the world of SPJ there is one angler
    acknowledged as the leader/inventor of the SPJ movement,
    and you should seek his advise and Pro Staff support;
    Garriga
