Default rod + line test question

Printed on the side of many rods, I've noticed the manufacturer suggested lure wt. and line test. I've read that exceeding the lure wt could potentially snap the rod tip but what would happen if the line test were exceeded?

Default Re: rod + line test question

I have found that when I try to cast more or less weight than a rod is rated for that it does not cast as far as with weight in the range or close to the range that the manufacturer recommends.
