I just recently bought my first ultra light/micro fish rod…the Suntech Kurenai hm30r
I bought it because I have the brook trout bug and needed something specific to target 2-8" trout. I had been using my rhodo, which works fine, but is overkill for some of the smallest of these brookies.
I was wondering if any of you own one of these and have any insight you would like to share. I have not fished mine yet, but look forward to playing with this new toy. It is so light and delicate. The handle diameter is really small. I may need to beef it up a little. Considering the weight is under and ounce, adding a little is not gonna be the end of the world.
A couple of recent trips, I was catching 2-4" brookies. A couple, I accidentally sling-shotted into the bushes and had to rescue them. I figured it was time for a rod sized to the fish. I am hoping this rod is delicate enough to keep them leased and heads in the water vs the troutbuchet effect of the sato/rhodo. I figure a softer rod might also improve my hook to land ratio on these spastic little critters as well.
