Levo's Guide: Setup Suggestions

Recommended Posts

 

 

Hi guys 

Please see some examples of possible set-ups you might want to try to get once you reach certain level in the game. Those are good quality gear for adequate level and you might want to give it a try when buying new fishing equipment. Please keep in mind that there are different rods and reels available that you might like more - those are ONLY examples of some set-ups that might help some players to choose their rods and reels.

 

FLOAT FISHING:

 

Rod level 8 - Express Fishing Red Stick RS23 (Telescopic rod)

2.5 star quality Telescopic rod - 7m long with test 2-16 g and load capacity of 8.5 kg. For this rod I would use Mono Original 6.8 kg line 100m.

3.5 star quality Telescopic rod - 7m long with 7-80g test and load capacity of 11.5 kg. For this rod I would use Snake Ultra Line 8.7 kg line 100m.

 

Rod level 22 - Falcon TL 800 (Telescopic rod)

4-star quality Telescopic rod 8m long with 3-15g test and load capacity of 22kg. For this rod I would use Snake Ultra Line 19.1 kg 100m. This is an excellent rod for targeting large fish species such as carp. 

 

Rod level 18 - Model One Match M140MH (Match rod)

Reel level 16- Proton PRO 6000 (Spinning reel)

3.5 star quality Match rod 4.2 m long with 7-35g test and load capacity of 16kg.

3.5 star quality Reel with spool size of 6000 and max drag of 9.5kg. 

For this rod and reel, I would use Snake Ultra Line 14kg 300 m

 

Rod level 30 - Rebellion Match 420H ( Match rod)

Reel level 26 - Everest 2 8000s (Spinning reel)

Spoiler

rf4_4.0.10243_20180713_183638.png.66367c98740f3c93fb4b5ec5a2f1fbdc.png

4.5-star quality Match rod 4.2 m long with 12-36g test and max load capacity of 41.5 kg - In my opinion the best match rod in the game at the moment. This amazing rod gives you 2 different bonuses: +5% to "Float fishing " skill and + 2 to the " Using a rig with the waggler ability".

3.5-star quality spinning reel with spool size of 8000 and max drag od 22kg.

For this rod and reel, I would use Ultra line 28.2kg - please note that this is only a wise choice when fishing in smaller lakes as you will only have around 112m of line on your spool. But using this mono line will save you some silver when it comes to the repairs. If you need more line you can use braided line + leader instead. This is a very strong setup for targeting a large fish species.

- Legacy Ti 13.-4.50 - Carp rod - 5-star carp rod - the stronger bottom fishing rod in the game atm. Test 70-220g and load capacity 80.5kg. This is an excellent rod with +7% bottom fishing skill and + 3% to the fishing with carp rod bonuses. Best rod to cast for large distance and to target even very big fish species. This rod is also very good for bait fishing as the est is 220g.

- Venga 10000 - 5 star spinning reel with max drag 32kg. Very strong reel with 10000 spool. This reel will allow you to use mono line more often when fishing at different water bodies. 

For this setup, I would use min 36kg monoline ( to get as much line as possible)  or if needed 45kg braided line.

 

SPINNING AND BAITCASTING:

 

Rod Level 16 - Onega Ethnic SPM68UL ( UL spinning rod) - ULTRA LIGHT SETUP

- Sputnik Alpha 1000 - 4-star quality spinning reel with test 1g - an excellent choice for ultra light setup.

For this setup I chose an Extra Silk 4kg braided line, you will need to also add fluorocarbon leader for more effective fishing. I would suggest a 3-4kg leader.

- Sputnik Proton 6000 - 3 star quality spinning reel with spool size of 6000 and max drag 8.5kg. Optimal spinning reel for all occasions. For this set-up I used Simmons ExtraSilk Braided line-30 LB Bl Xl 300m and fluorocarbon leader 11.5 kg.

- Sputnik Proton PRO 6000 - 3.5 star quality spinning reel with spool size 6000 and max drag 9.5kg. Another excellent reel for all occasions. For this set-up I went with Simmmons Extra SIlk 34LB Bl Xl 300m and Simmons Steel Leader 15 kg (targeting a pike).

- Heaven Creek Evora CST CSSL98H - 4 star casting rod with 12-60g test and load capacity 49.5kg. This rod gives an extra bonus +10% to casting distance. This is excellent rod for targeting medium and large predatory fish. With extra bonus this rod gives you a chance to cast baits at long distances.

-  Zeiman ZM- Steelness ZMS60 - 4.5 star baitcasting reel  with spool size of 6000 and max drag 17.5 kg. This excellent baitcasting reel for all occasions. This reel have a light spool what makes it perfect baitcasting reel for casting at longer distances with even relativity lighter baits. For this set-up (fishing at Kuori lake) I used Snake Power Braid 39LB SMO 300m and Simmons Pure fluorocarbon leader 38LB. 

 

 

Few important informations:

- Please remember that rod should be the strongest point in your set-up and line or leader should be the weakest.

- When choosing your line please check your max rod capacity, spool size of your reel and max drag of your reel, you also should consider wear damage of your tackle and always check the whole set-up that you are using before starting fishing.

- Remember that better quality equipment (more stars) wears of slower, so you not need to repair it or replace it as fast as lower quality equipment but you might need to pay a bit more once you will repair or replace parts of your equipment.

- Using braided line makes your equipment wears off faster. When using mono line your fishing equipment wears off slower but you will have a less line on the spool.

remember a reel is stronger than its brake, so even though the brake is 12 kg the reel can probably handle 20 kg so a 12kg brake reel on a 25kg rod i would do around 15kg line easy.

Hi mqg

Thanks for your input.


The problem is with "probably". Every reel is different, some reels can probably handle 2x or more stated max drag, but some only 1.2 x max drag - that is why we got stars quality for every item in the game.
 

Also some new players think that when they see on the reel that the max drag is 4.5kg, it means that this reel can only stop the fish that is not bigger (weight of the fish) than a 4.5kg. And ofcourse this is not about the fish weight. It is about the strength-force that fish is putting on the reel, that these players unfortunately mix up.

 

I am confident that the lines chosen for these set-ups will be the first to break, even if player will do max drag  and even when the reel has 20% wear.


Also some of the lines and leaders are chosen for the specific water body and fish living in it - for example you do not need 300m line on Kuori Lake and you do not need more than 150m on Bear Lake but also you do not need 20kg line when targeting Chars or Burbots on Kuori Lake. Another example is:  you do not need an Everest II 8000 and Dominator Carp Rod when targeting Breams at Volkhov. What I mean is: once a player gets more experienced, they will know what line, leaders, reels, rods are best for the fish they are targeting. But if they don't have this knowledge yet, is better to be safe than sorry - it is probably cheaper to have line thorn than reel or rod broken.

I love it, it's great to know what should I get. But the gear is really expensive, I get from 16 to 18 lvl when trying to grind money for a reel. Rods aren't asmuch expensive, though

Hey Levo, 

 

Nice guide as usual

 

maybe it would be better for the last setup float to switch rod  because the test of the rebelion rods are too light you can't baitfishing with it seems the falcon is a good choice for that :)

Hi deadspirit25

Thank you. I choose Rebbelion Match rod as this one is giving you 2 extra bonuses sadly the Falcon doesn't, but yes for the bait fishing rig Falcon would be a better choice.

Thanks for adding some Float setups. As I try Spin I realize I may not be a fan of it.

 

May go the hipster route and continue exploring Float.

As a never player I deeply appreciate this very comprehensive guide. I would however like to talk about reel and line relations a bit more clearly if possible. To summarize (subjectively of course) one can use heavier line than the reel's drag indicates but the added weight should be derived by the star value of said reel. Is there some math (multipliers) that we can use in relation to star amount? Not to ask precise measurements but an approximate spectrum instance, for instance: 3 stars representing a 1.2x multiplier and a full star set representing 2x multiplier.

Thank you!

Por que não usar um ml de varetas e eh varas?

apenas capacidade de haste?

Eu não sei por que usar uma vara pesada.

 

The rod is very important to cushion the weight of the fish, so the heavy rod

You will be fine targeting a mid-size fish species on Old Burg, Volkhov with this setup.

do the bonus skill points on rods add up when you already have full skill points in that skill, so would you have an even higher chance to catch trophy fish that way ?

Or would it be a waste as it only adds up to the max skill ?

Yes, bonus skills on rods add up. More skill you have, better fisherman you are :)
