    I am sure it is but for a 3 pc 15' rod it is scary light or maybe I am just used to chunky fishing rods.
    1.5kg with reel and 300m of 40lb line.

    Thought they were out of buisness?
    Just spoke with Kevin, all is still well with K-labs although he has moved down to the coast which disrupted business a bit.

    Good to know. The guy that contacted me on the forum mentioned a move but that was the last I heard.

    Rod is all good now and is my goto salmon rod of several gathering dust.

    It's called a solaris II mate. Didn't see any other names on it.

    I just weighed mine for comparison.
    Its a 13" Penn Legion surf rod fitted with a Penn Fathom star drag (600m of 50lb braid) - total weight around 1.35kg (approx 700 grams for the rod and 650 grams for the reel)

    Pretty sure I can fit the same amount of braid on my reel but got the suffix stuff for free.

    I am looking forward to trying it out.

    Thanks all
    Got pretty keen then the 6.5 06 build took over
    However I bought a Kilwell 3 piece 15 foot and tried it today
    Was heck of impressed how much further I could get than with my dual duty salmon rod

    However , didn't help me catch any fish.
