Thanks all.
Well i already have lunker hunter rod which is a 2-6 kg rod. Though has a strong butt and landed 64cm cod on it, casting heavy lures on it isnt easy.
The current rod Catana is a one piece, though graphite and all, its pretty heavy, so I want to upgrade it. Also I like the idea to have a travel rod, easy to carry while bush bashing and if one day fishing for barra up north.
I guess I'll get the pork chop.

And yeah Maz, that Venom 6kg looks heavier than the usual shimano/daiwa 6kg.
My lunker hunter 6kg rod feels like a 4 kg.
Maz, do you have those three for casting purposes? To cast diff lures and weights. Or heavier ones for targetting bigger fish etc?
The 4-9kg and 12-20lb are very similar in action. The 12-20lb is a majorcraft volkey and the 4-9kg is a daiwa td battler. They are for cod in smaller waterways and also running jigs and big lures on bass/yellas.

The 8-15kg is a millerods codfreak which is my new all rounder for general cod.

I also have a swimbait outfit as well but I left that out because it's a bit more specialised.

I’d personally be going for something with a bit of glass in it. Lobbing 50 gram plus lures around with 50lb leaders is pretty **** with high carbon rods.

Plus with glass you can use the tip to dislodge snags with more abandon.

Thanks all for the input. Bought pork chop :gj:
Armadale Angling had Gen Black v2 pork chop $149 in comparison to TD Black pork chop $219. So I bought the Gen Black v2.
A lot of power on the butt but the tip looks very thin.Maybe i'll write up a review/report when I've used it.
