Hi, after letting loose with a Grauvelle Technos VT 4250, and its "in shop" action is replicated with a surfblaster 7000 18lb braid and tapered shockleader, with ease ie local beaches, i can achieve 30-40m more than my Sonik SK3 /greys 6 mag reel.
However, fishinf the combo for the first time at Gilbkicker yesterday 11th Jan, when upping to a 5oz from a 4oz cos of the weed/current the rod broke at the tip.The supplier LS&T have the rod and will get the top section replaced.Icould have upbgraded, but it to me and my purposes is such an incredible rod.
Any advice to eliminate the replacement failing the same other than stick to 4oz max.
Could I say re-inforce the tip /top section interface witha longer and shorter shrink sleeve.
Any alteration should not ideally be damaging to the crod INCASE the fix does not do the trick.
