Pilk does indeed equal pirk. It's just a bit of Euro English because the rod is designed for the German market. It is a heavy spinner and it is definatly rung for fixed spool use so perhaps it's not the best choice if you're after a multi rod. If the lures that you're chucking are only 60g, you don't really need that sort of power. Just go with your TFG.
Have you looked at the Abu conolon travel boat/uptider rods ? They might be a good choice if you're happy casting a multiplier.
Personally, I wouldn't use a multi as a travel reel given the choice. Drop it in the mud or have a sand filled wave wash over it and it needs a full strip down or it wont cast right and it sounds like a coffee grinder. Do the same with a fixed spool and it's good to go after a quick rince. Also, as you point out, if you get a big fish that drag 60m of line through rocks and shred it, with a FS, it's just a change of spool and you can re-load the original spool in camp when it's to dark to fish. Do that with a multi and you have to strip the spool and re-load it with line and that wastes fishing time.
The flies that generated the takes were big 4 an 5" decievers fished on a WF sink tip and a flouro tippet. None of the deer hair surface patterns generated a strike, even at dusk. I did have a fast sinking line with me but never got the chance to fish it.
The fly rod will be going with me again in January so if you have any success, let me know what worked for you.
BTW, I know the rods arn't on the Fosters website but ring or e-mail them and I'm sure they will sort you out.
