The statement of lbs. at sea fishing rods refers to the recommended breaking strength of the line which is regulated by the IGFA classes (International Game Fishing Association) in order to achieve equal conditions for catching officially acknowledged record fish. Therefore these lbs. statements doesn’t have anything to do with a casting weight in gram. Anyhow, also here there does exist a little trick to roughly find out about the according casting weight of such rods. Just add a zero to the lbs. statement and immediately you have the approx. casting weight for the rod.
