Found some old 7strand copper


Recommended Posts

If you decide to use it on anything I'd carefully check it out for potential kinks beforehand. The Penn 49M (Mariner) is a very large, heavy, awkward reel and probably not the best one for using copper and if used I'd run a power handle on it for better take up. I have two of the 49m's in the cellar that I used too use for Seth Greens in the old days but I replaced them early on with Penn 309's because of the awkwardness of the 49M's (they keep turning over in the rod holders because they are so heavy etc.).

No special tip (e.g. roller or twilli) needed for copper (or leadccore) by the way.
