Nice little set up for the money.

I've a couple of similar but slightly heavier combos I use.

I tend to remove the levelwinds on most of my multipliers and blank off the cage holes or fit a dummy bar.

Reasons? You get more distance, the leader knot won't get trapped and under heavy load levelwinds can jam.

I also polish the spindles, remove brakes and just use 20w 50w or similar motor oil to act as a brake.

Not sure if you are using braid, if not it will certainly help with setting the hook. But check the rod rings to make sure they are ok with braid.

Hi Springwell, yes I use braid as a main line for 90% of my lure fishing.
Re removing the line guide, on the low profile baitcasters the line guide locks in place when free spool is engaged which makes a massive difference to casting.
I have also been know to do a few tweeks to my reels, the first and probably the best is ceramic bearings.
