  1. Lately I've been thinking about trying for a swordfish off sydney. However all the bent butt rods they seem to be using are atleast $750. I've been looking at the shimano status PE 5-8 as a budget alternative, but it says it is designed for deep dropping with electric reels. Is there something about the design of these rods that make them unsuitable for swordfishing? There is also a tiagra bent butt at around $350 with runner guides and a roller tip that looks like the next cheapest option. Has anyone used these rods before or know of another cheap equivalent? At the moment my plan is to use: Status or Tiagra bent butt Tiagra 50A or Tyrnos 50LRS 1000m 80lb braid + 80 or 130lb mono topshot Thanks
