Hi Guyfrog

I'm sure one of our members will step forward to help. How did you manage to break two rods on one outing? Was it the monsters at the rocky end of Arambol that done it?

Hi IA,and all peeps who responded, no i did not break them in car doors etc, alas to say that they were both brand new 9' ft travel rods that i had purchased prior to traveling, one a Tauvell teknos and the other a Diawa wilderness,both breaking on the casting of 28gm Rapala lures, which according to makers spec was well with in the allocated range of there casting abilities, my only conclusion is that multi piece travel rods cannot take the stress because of there many spigots, this alas does not help me, as i can not get replacements quick enough from the UK before i have to return home, next visit i shall only travel with a two piece and chance to luck with being carried in Plane hold, thanks for all your advice etc, i hope to have better luck on my next visit in December!!!! Tight Lines GuyFrog

Double Ouch!!

The first glass rod I owned was a Daiwa Telescopic Casting Wt of 200 gms and is still worth its salt that was about 25years and several fish ago, all in Salt Water. If you go in for a telescope then think real heavy, especially now with Chinese made blanks.

I still think you should look up some shops in Goa you can buy a decent 2 pc rod within Rs. 2000 should do for the holiday.

Hope this helps.

Did it have any instructions or disclaimers on the casters specs and abilities :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: fail to understand how two rods with different manufacturers can have the same result after trying to cast 28 gms lures ....... unbelievable ... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bobster ... anything to do with the excess moonlight on a Goa beach :roll: :roll: :roll:

GuyFrog If You go to the Vasco Market there are a couple of Tackle shops there where u could find a decent rod,also check your line it may be your line is not spooled the right way so as you cast it makes a small knot on the line which jams onto a guide and BANG goes your rod.28 Gms rapala is not much weight to break the rod its the force during the cast.Good luck Tight Lines.
