    Default Cult 17ft 8

    Anyone used the above rod? Rated at 10/12 40g+. I would be using 11/12 triple d shooting heads which are 48g's but i've been told vision heads are lighter but rated same so would the triple d be too much??
    Cheers

    I have a couple of cult rods though not that long, 14' 7" and 13' 9' , I don't think you would have a problem with the heavier line.

    Hi SAINTEE,
    I have also just bought the 17'8 Cult and I am expecting my Triple D 11/12 lines to arrive today, the lines were recommended to partner the rod by the Vision rep. Looking forward to trying them and will let you know how I got on
    Cheers

    The lines seem fairly short and light for a near 18ft 11/12 rod, will you fish them with tips?
    Seems reasonably priced, hope it suits you.
