Cheater Dominating The Pelagics
Since Nordic Stage's introduction to Australian shores we have focused largely on finesse gear.
Now for whatever reason people have often chosen to push that gear to the limits which can be risky but cool.
It was with this in mind the Cheater range was introduced, the name literally referring to these rods ability to cheat the odds.
After pushing them to the limits in PNG some of the local crew have also been punishing them with great results. Despite being very light weight due to their low resin content they still have some serious back bone.
Justin from the Sunshine Coast has recently been nailing a variety of pelagics on plastics with his Cheater 6-14lb rod...
SE QLD based angler Sam bagged this very solid Moreton Bay tuna on his in under 10 minutes on the 10-22lb model.
The was the same rod Nordic Stage owners Angus and Henry used recently in PNG to bag some cracker dollies on plastics. The 10-22lb rod comes in both a 6.9 foot and 7.8 foot length to give a perfect option for either tighter water jack and barra fishing, or open water pelagic chasing.
Sef has been using his 7.8 foot 10-22lb Cheater for exactly that chasing some big Spanish off Moreton Island. To have confidence on a fish this size with a rod this light in the hand is a great feeling.
