    How far do you want to cast?

    If you want to chuck 4-5oz any more than a 30-40 yard lob you’re going to want a proper big pit reel.

    I’ve got a pair of Caldias a pair of TDM’s, and I’ve just bought a pair of the new TDR’S, all 4000 sized.

    The Caldias I have set up permanently on a pair of rods in a quiver for method fishing. Really nice.
    Up until Saturday I was using the TDM’s on the Yare. Going for a 60 turn chuck with a 2oz feeder, I had the bail arm shut on me three times, causing crack off. That’s a lot of Tourrettes I can tell you.
    Monday morning I go into Angling Direct. The new TDR’S HAVE A ‘break’ so that when you flick the bail arm over to cast, the handle becomes really stiff to turn. Hopefully that’ll alleviate the problem but I haven’t used them yet.
    I’m fishing Saturday and Sunday this week on there so they should get a thorough testing

    Shimano Rarenium CI4 I use the 5000 series for the Tidal trent. I fish it 2-3 times a week regularly casting between 2 – 5oz 60-70 Turns and they are simply brilliant!

    I know that Nick Speed uses the 4000’s for his commercial work so they must be good for that too.
