Brundall Angling RT4 Casting Weight

Post by Andy Tibbott » Tue Sep 15 2020 19:40

Does anyone have any idea of the casting weight of a Brundall Angling RT4 :shrug: I've seen Charlie throw some reasonable size lures, nothing huge, with these rods.

Thanks,

Up to 4oz easily. I think the original rating was 2-4oz, but could be wrong.

As well as pike fishing with lures and baits, I used mine at sea quite a bit, and they'll happily throw a 6oz lead and full squid bait. That rod once boated a 17lb cod for me. They're sluggish in action by today's standards, but still a great all rounder :thumbs:

The originals were built on Hardy blanks. The later ones were built on Century blanks, a standard #2 Armalite spin blank.
