Another trips came and the choice - as it is usually during spring time - for fishery was on rivers and small rivers , I chose days and evening time when all the noises of civilization disappear. My goal is like always: ide, chyb and perch, instead of line I chose Dragon Invisible Braid 0.08mm and then it started. That change proved to be a hit. The rod showed its true colours. Together with the rise of the temperature, the numer of catches, the sizes of fish and the number of trips by the water rise to. This was the beginning of testing my rod. The rod with the line works correctly in my opinion, however with the use of thin braid it gains 200 % of its advantages. I will start from guides - high quality, during coiling up the braid or line you do not hear any noiseson the “ ring “ and its arragement with connection with the blank’s construction has a positive influence on the distance and casting precision. It is time for the blank. Fishmaker is not a typical spinning rod.It is slightly more massive rod, my model is designed for spinning sligtly heavier than ultra light. The rod of a fast action, with top bending with significan supply of power and incredible sensitivity - we can feel and see the most delicate bites. It exposes its qualities mainly when using the braid what causes the situation that you can feel even the most delicate bites of sluggish predators. I considered the spinning rod as rather delicate of stiff construction and with very soft tip, where main weight limit of used jig heads ended at the 6g and the maximum length of the lure - 6cm. In the catalog specifics we are told thet the rod can be used to side strap. During my tests I checked that variant. I do not know what Dragon’s designers had on their minds, if the loading should be above or only to 10g - from my observations I can give subjective rate- this spinning rod can be used for this fishing technique, but it won’t be favorite of the side method lovers. I used weights 7-12 g and I think that Dragon have in its offer the rods more sensitive and generally better for this method, than Fishmaker II Sensitive Jig 18. There is different situation with Drop Shot method, here the rod is perfect. I know that each of us have different likes and preferences but I am pretty convinced that the most of potential users of this rod will be satisfied with he possibilities which they will meet on the fishiery thanks to Fishmaker II.
