Unfortunately that is the limitation on tele's. I have 4 accounts and ran all 4 on low level tele's up to at least level 12 before branching each account into another rod type. Yup, maybe I do have some masochistic tendancies Lol. best example I can give is on my steam account. (Sunlion)-(I love the challenge tele's throws up personally).
He is still at Mosquito and is almost Level 15. I have held back from branching into a Bolo setup as I want to save for the L16 Onega setup.
leveling on a new character can be expensive and time consuming, even frustrating if one wishes to go Tele >bolo> alongside Feeder and Spin fishing etc.
For Tele sticks, it is easy to want to get each tele stick one after another from Level 1 Tele TL up to say a Linear at level 10, because, well you want bigger fish right? Bigger/and more fish means more silver and better gear. but with bait making progress costs, Groundbait costs, food and drink costs on top of say hook line and bobber replacement costs on breakages, it can get expensive fast, and also frustrating when one is always going for the next rod in a level up.
What I did on Sunlion was use Tele TL(4.5kg) till L6, a Walrus (7.5kg) till level 10, a Linear (9kg) till level 14 and now use an Onega White Pole 4 (11kg). This lightened the costs a little. Now having ran 4 characters through Mosquito, I pretty much know where I am going to get the problem with Common Carp, Tench and occasional larger Chub(if 2-3kg is large Lol, which it is for a tele TL btw) and what baits are more attractive to those low level gear breakers. I also stick to the golden rule of making my line the weakest link in the Line>Rod Chain, and also use Happy Hooks as soon as affordable so I loose less fish. Think I have lost 4-5 in almost 15 levels on Sunlion, with no breakages apart from a couple or three line breaks. In fact across 4 characters and over 700 hrs gameplay I have no reel or rod breaks.
But back to the main point, on Teles, you have to fish smart. Know the waterway, or get to know it. I purposely fished on the North bank just before the bridge on my initial Tele TL, with a few visits to the Cottage pond in between, this ensure I leveled slowly but safely till I could get the 7.5 kg pole. (N.S.E.W in regard to Hud compass, as map is not oriented to North)
Then I fished North some more with some East bank fishing again with care. Anything pulling me into orange apart from 2 or three mistakes I just Alt F4. Making silver is hard enough with all the costs after all. Once I had the Linear then it was the S and SW areas, ie the path through the reeds on left of lake. Bigger fish, and more chances at those Common Carps, Tench and occasional gutsy Chub. The Linear can handle a good size but, still a danger as say a 4kg Common Carp is pulling far more Kilo than that when pulling away, a line breaker for sure, and many new players overcompensate with stronger line. Seen a hell of a lot of rod and reel breaks with the new flood of Steam accounts who thing a strong line will do all the heavy lifting. It does not as you already are more than likely aware.
With a Bolo you have a reel, so it can help as you can let off some tension but on the Tele, we don't have that , so what I do is soon as a larger fish gets hooked, and you can tell if it's going to be a good fish by the way it takes the bait, I move the tele to one side as I raise it, generally in the direction the fish is taking the line after initially getting hooked, and this can help turn the fish towards the bank, doing it the opposite way will just add more tension and if too heavy for the line will just head off over the horizon with your tackle leaving an empty rod behind. ) Turning the fish (larger fish) is essential on a large Common Carp, the will just barrel straight out otherwise, as do Chub, in fact Chub will just sprint away from the get go.
Sorry for the long ramble, but there is no real easy answer to your question. You just have to fish smart and know the limitations of Tele's and make adjustments in where to fish, what bait for which fish, and create tactics like turning the fish. This will hopefully mitigate the limitations of the lower level poles, and gain better handling for the future sturdier ones down the line.
Personally I enjoy those limitations on poles, it's quite a challenge even at low level and I enjoy it, but then I am a slow and steady leveler, I like to take my time and immerse myself in the game. Bolo rods take some of those limitations away, and when I get to level 16 I will hunt some bigger fish, but so far 4.5kg is about the top end of my comfort zone even on the 11Kg Onega, as a 4.5kg fish if you don't turn it is going to pull some serious weight on a tele.
Hope this helps a little in giving you some ideas in where you want to proceed in Tele's and help you not break your stuff.
