PostSubject: Rods and reels setup   Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:25 am

I'm thinking of using two carp rods with multiplier reels for downtiding from the boat,they both have 20lb'ish mono line on them.I have plenty of 30lb braid at hand,anybody got any opinions on using braid?
One reel is a Diawa the other is a shimano lever drag.
I've got a couple of light boat rods I could use,but the bite indication wouldn't be as good because of the less flexible tips.
I suppose I could let off the drag and put the reels on "clicker"
Anybody got any suggestions?
The boat has two seats that will swivel to facing backwards for fishing,thought of uptiding from the seats while the
downtiding rods are out off the back.I'll be fishing at anchor.

Only problem with multipliers on carp rods might be the lack of eyes along the rod. Because they are designed for fixed spools and more spaced out you end up with the line rubbing on the rod when you get a bend in it using a multiplier. Other than that theres no issue and braid is brilliant stuff. I rarely use mono these days, its far better. Just dont pull it tight if you get in a bit of a tangle

Thanks Si,
I'll have a look at using different rods,I've got a couple of light boat rods.
I've got a shimano fixed spool reel with 50lb braid on it,might do a shuffle. lol!
