Regularly. If I'm spodding a feature up to around 100 yards I will be using the clip. Enough force just to hit it, not a full blown whack. If it is above that then I know I can cast harder.

I like my fingers, and using mono, I can be sure I keep them almost intact, well other than previous non-fishing injuries.

I have also have braid wear grooves in the tip and butt rings on a proper spod rod where it was retrieved under tension.

Yip...I was watching a lad on a large northern still water spodding at about 75 yards. Every cast was a whack to the horizon, with the clip being hit with the spod at least 20 feet in the air!

How the clip did not ping I don't know! Anyway, standing along the bank from him, I could see that on hitting the clip, the spod was coming back at least 10 yards before hitting the water.

When he put out his baited rigs, he was doingt he same, but the leads were not bouncing back as far (mono maybe). So basically, he was spodding a good 5-10 yards shorter than his rigs were.

Like you say, enough power to touch the clip, and no more.

Youíll be surprised at how well it handles it. My mate uses this set up for complete distance and can spod really well. By the time his spod is hitting 140-150, heís not actually putting any real pressure on the line when he hits the clip, the stretch in that much mono off the spool is a complete shock absorber. He still uses it for short work too but again, he only casts to reach the distance, he puts just enough power into it to get it to where he needs to be and clip only just stops it.

Good idea that, never thought of doing that
Bet you could get away with 6lb its only an empty spod.

Iíve never seen the need for carrying seperate spod and marker rods so has to be braid for me. 30lb main to 50lb leader. You can use 20lb main but I find braid breaks nowhere near the stated BS and it used to make me wince hitting the clip with 20lb. Just remember to dampen the spool particularly when itís windy.

I have always used 30 lb braid with a 6 turn 50 lb mono. I find I don't need a finger stall and it allows a small amount of shock on the cast .. I am going to regret this but... never had a crack off , damaged finger or problems on the cast.

Take it none of you are hitting the clip with your light mono, then you have the stretch, not for me.

to be truthful never really measured it, but i can spod/spomb just as far with a fully loaded spod just as far as i can cast with a fishing set up, i served my apprenticeship on the south coast beaches launching tackle out to sea, so maybe that has helped, i am off to france in two weeks so will give it a measure, as i am bound to blank and it will give me something to do
