Few feedback that i got are, all my current setups are PE6-8 class. Well, most of my "local" trips are targeting GT ca 10-20kg class which will survive the pairing of rods with Stella 14000XG and/or Stella 10000XG SOM 16000.
For those who likes big mouth chuggers with minimum weight 135g up to 230g, different rod and reel setup is needed. I am not fimiliar with Daiwa, but with Stella, 18000XG PE10-12 is a must.
Example of these chugger are Hammerhead E-cup 145g, G-cup 190g , I-cup 215g, Craftbait GT3 150g, 170g 190g, PD Masterd Bomb BIG-CUP 170, MASTERD BOMB 205, Shell Shaping ChuBar 205, Orion Cono Cono 160, 190 & 220, Orion Monster 210,
