    Holy cow can this sucker cast!

    I finally got around to putting some line (50# PP) on an Abu 6500C3CT Mag-Elite I picked up awhile back, mounted it on a Tica 9' surf rod, and took it to the Mothers Day family outing (with a bunch of other rods). Anyway us guys went outside to teach one of the nephews how to use a baitcaster, and I pulled out the Mag-Elite on the Tica and let-er-rip.

    First cast was about 100 yards, not bad as I had held back. Next cast a bit further, and within 5 minutes my 3 ounce bank sinker was in the top of a full grown tree about 150 yards away! WOW.

    I can't wait to match this thing up with a true distance casting rod.

    I hope that 3oz sinker don't fall and kill somebody. or did the tree give it back?

    Since the tree was on a golf course, we never ventured out too far and always reeled in when we saw balls ploping down on the green in front of us. That time I got the weight back but over the next hour or so I donated about 4 sinkers to the trees.

    Finally a good use for a golf course!
