Fishing off Portland Races trip is getting closer and time to get the tackle ready as the weather forecast looks really good wind SSE force 2-3. New rods here ready to trial an upgraded Xtra Flexx boat and a Charter boat rod, both cheap as chips rods so going to see if I can break them as the Xtra Flexx is supposed to be unbreakable
Had one of the Xtra Flexx from when they where launched and this later version has more heavy lift characteristics I have been told so it can only get better as it was good before. The Charter boat rod again low budget rod in the 15-30lb class so a good range rod. I was going to run with my CA30L reel but new stock of the Vantage 300 reel has arrived so going with one of them see what happens plus a Chieftain 45 reel another low cost reel to try and blitz. Haven’t sorted softbaits yet will post on those later.
