hello everyone once again!!

ive had a 12ft 2.5lb Shakespeare Cypry Carp Rod for about a year as i used to do course fishing, now that ive took up sea fishing and love it so much i was wanting to know if i can use the 12ft 2.5lb TC Shakespeare Cypry Carp Rod for spinning.

i currently only have 10lb mono line on my reel atm too would you recommend a 12lb? or would 10lb Suffice? also wanted to know if a shock leader would be needed.

kind regards,

Mr Feather winking

Ideal rod for flatties but I would avoid snaggy venues, ok for estuaries and such like, likewise watch your casting weight and give the rod a wash down with fresh water after every outing as for the line, if you are fishing close in them 10lb should suffice (less tidal drag)

Brilliant rods for flattie bashing. Did use them for years when close range fishing for bass as well. I didnt tend to use more than a 3oz lead and if the tide was a bit much then use a grip lead in that weight. Excellent bite detection especially for a nice flattie or good size bass winking
