I've got two original honey colored Hercules blanks. They have a large group of people that really like them a lot... Jeff

 Huh? Huh?  I wonder how many fisher men were catapulted from the boat rail fishing , because they were on the wrong side of the fulcrum !

Just on the topic of rod bend, this is a nice example of what modern rods are capable of:



Really makes me want to break out the 'tiger country' gear again - the countdown to spring is on!

Impressive! If something snaps there though you may well be minus a few teeth!

C-R-A-C-K (rod snaps) . . . W-H-A-M (rod hits face). . .  T-H-U-D (body hits deck) !

Stay Safe & Tight Lines !

The reality of fishing the rail. The longer rods was for getting the line away from the boat on the final circle as well giving the spectra and FC short top some stretch.   After fishing on most of the LR boat as the rail fishing evolved I've only harnessed up once with Grabosky on the RR111 on the kite, 256# and never harnessed up again. I stick the rail rod under my right armpit and keep my left hand above reel ( I remove the left lugger to all reels ) to apply pressure  with the weight of my body and can a few inches of lift with the rod. I get scolded by some deckys for not cranking the reel on the rise of the rod tip and not trying to levrage the rod up. But thats how I do it. Knee pads are required for my method.
 Now hats off to the Hercules rod. I happened to stick my spinning reel to my rod to my 60XH (80 to 100 ) and picked up and 200 plus at Hurricane Bank for a three hour battle. The first time I've ever handed off my gear, after the first 20 minutes I could not gain on it. Directly under the boat so lifting the cow made that rod tip to butt even for the whole battle. I harness for a bit, try putting the rod on the rail upside down only to have the tip guide reverse . Derek ( my battle mate for the duration 15 minute on, 15 minute off ) finally we button down to 60 lb drag to bust it off.  It did free swim to the surface to flip us off then back back to the depths.
