Depends on the brand and model of the Mebaru rod. The Finezza Prototype is unique in that it is seems a very stiff rod in the hand....but load it up with some 2.1# test Varivas Super Trout Advance Sight Edition and it does a masterful job on crappie. I only caught one good crappie this past week but that told me all I needed to know about the rod. I doubt I will be using the ester line much on the Finezza Prototype....but will use ester with my area trout rods......Tice Ice Cube rods. I am pretty sure I will not be using ester on my Ajing rods unless I am after stocker trout. If I could see the clear lines I wouldn’t bother with hi-vis lines either. Let me say this about the Varivas lines. I have had a Shimano Twin Power spooled up with the Varivas 2.1# test nylon for about 9 months now. They line is till very limp......has almost no memory and just the right amount of stretch. The line is orange and I see now that Varivas Sight Edition is green in color and the smallest on the Varivas website is 3# test. But I am sure I will be getting some Sunline to play around with too. And let’s not forget the Lunakia 6’ 10”. It is also a very unique rod in the fact that it is a hybrid between the Ajing and Mebaru rods. This week I think the weather will allow me to get out for about 5 days in a row to test out rods....line combinations......to include some trout fishing. So excited I can hardly sleep! The older I become the more excited I get about fishing.
