Wanted to see what images I would get if I replaced the sinker with a GoPro came and cast its into the surf. Check this video out. GDX Casting GoPRO
Running line was 20lb with a 60lb shock leader approximately 30ft
The rig used was the Breakaway clip down rig
You will see in the film how well they work during the cast, improving aerodynamics and protecting the bait during the cast. These clip down rigs especially work we’ll at protect the bait at the beginning of the cast as the bait is in time with the speed of the sinker. (Eliminating snatch that leaves bait on beach.)
Enjoy Regards Nickaway
Got this picture from Patrick in North Carolina. He fishes Outer banks and uses 8 and bait setup The HDX is his favorite rod.
Attached are pictures of some drum caught on your HDX. Thanks again for all of your help and the great rods! I own several other more expensive blanks and they sit at home untouched. I’ll be ordering a tournament butt soon!Pat PalumboKDH, NC
