welcome to the forum. GT fishing is in my opinion the ultimate test for both equipment and angler when it comes to the demands of long casts, having to really move the lure and having to pull as hard as humanly possible once you get bit!
It's hard to find in the states, but Bobby Brown in 100 lb was the hands down best performer all around for GT fishing that I've used.
I'm talking about spinning gear. Didn't use it with baitcasters.
