Midgar Companion Rod Series is targeted towards fishing for any species in saltwater or freshwater, using larger nymphs, streamers, steelhead or salmon flies. We will say that the size of fish the rods will handl with great performance lies in the range up to around 8-12 kg, or equivalent up to about 20-25 lbs somewhere, but with great feel from fish from 1 lb and up.The series consists of 3 rods; a 9 feet 1 inch rod for casting weights around 200 grains +/- 10%, a 9 feet 3 inch rod for casting weights around 240 grains +/- 10%, and a 9 feet 5 inch rod for casting weights around 280 grains +/- 10%.If you use a lighter line, the rod will recover faster compared to the suggested middle weight, if you use a heavier line, the outer force will flex the rod more, thus creating a deeper flex. This will in turn slow down the recovery flex, giving you an impression of a slower, deeper action load.All of the rods have a medium action flex when the suggested middle weight for the rod models are used when performing a normal cast. If we use the same casting movement with our arm and body, and perform the cast with the same amount of force from our arm and body, as well as the movements are performed in the same speed, theoretically we will have these scenarios when casting;If you use a lighter line then the middle weight recommended, the rod will recover faster compared to the suggested middle casting weight. In order to load the rod more, you have to use a double haul and/or a faster casting rhythm, thus crating a deeper flex in the rod, which again build up a heavier load in the rod, which then again will give the line a higher speed.
