    Default Abu Garcia Mass Beat III UL casting rod


    I got a chance to play with Abu Garcia MB 3 casting BFS UL rod this morning.
    It was cold , in the forties and misting rain , but I wanted to give the rod a try .
    The reel I used was a KastKing Zephyr BFS reel loaded with four pound test P-Line.
    Lure was a brass 1/16+ spinner I built last night to try out today .
    Casting varied . Most of the time my cast were around 50-60í , but occasionally I would surprise myself and I would get 75-80í . Iím not sure if it was casting abilities or the reel .
    I did notice the drag kept adjusting itself , getting looser the longer I fished before noticing and tightening it back .
    I only landed one small bass that put a nice bend in the Mass Beat rod . It would bend down to the handle . I had at least four short strikers that I witnessed hitting my lure but I missed hooking them . So is the way of using single hook lures instead of trebles .
    This would make a great bluegill rod .
    I own a couple Daiwa reels Iíve half spooled with some p-line and Iím going to give those a try with this rod . Ones a Fuego , the other is an Exceler .
    Fishing with a baitcaster is different. Itís not as easy to fish with as it is a spinner . Maybe because Iím not as use to using one .
    The second pic shows my spinner I built .

    Good looking rig and fish, I miss my mid week outings.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
