Adhek Bali Pencil Popper: Young Lady

Adhek Bali new pencil popper "Young Lady" is the smaller version of Ocean Lady.
I never accurately weight it but guesstimate ~100-120g. Slightly lighter than Dragonet.
Based on Pak Adhek description and my trip to Maldives last year, Young Lady & Ocean Lady is suitable for choppy sea, strong current areas and multiple baitfish at surface.
Casting with these "Ladies" is relatively easy to due the rear weight distribution.
Depends on the rod action, you can move it up&down or sideways.
In Malay - Angguk-Angguk Geleng-Geleng

Love the finishing....

Relative sizes (Dunhill pack at toplefthand corner)...hehehehe

Light Casting Lures

After gone to Pekan last month, i got addicted by casting "small' sinking lures with Stella 5000 filled with TuffLine 20lb matched with Xzoga Custom PE2. Bought a few for my next Pekan trip in May. Got 3 Jackson Pin Tail Tune 40g lures, 1 Ima Honey Trap 95ss, 1 Ima heavy Surfer 90, 2Yozuri/Duel Livebait Jig Minnow.  These accroding to Azhar MJ, these lures are proven to catch coral trout, diamond trevally, GT, spanish mackerel and cobia at Karang Luas and Berhala Island.
Will use #1 Owner Stinger Treble 3X ST-56TN on all of these lures.

Sabel Dance has excellent "very fast action". Check out Sharma's Blog for detais on Sabel Dance.
One thing i need to do is to change few guides on the Sabel if i want it to be a perfect casting rod. Otherwise this Sabel is only for pure jigging mode.
