Thanks, sounds reasonable. Two to three ounces over probably won't cause a disaster. Finances are limited, not ready for a new rod just yet.I've got an 8' Tsunami Trophy Surf rod. It would suck to break it.
you won;t break it but your cast will suffer. that rod won;t load 5oz and bait very well. it will cast it but you will see a substantial (droop) for lack of better word. it will cast like a wet sock. distance would suffer and when the business hits the water the kerplunk wll scare every fish within a country mile away. however you may cast a 4 or 5 oz metal further and get some distance with it. there you have it. tsunami rods are not the best made and the graphite is weak IMO
