Thank you for your enquiry. It isn't possible to give a maximum weight of fish that a rod will handle as this is dependent upon the skill of the angler and the line strength used. However, we can confidently say that this rod will handle most large species of fish that are common to UK inshore waters. The rating of a rod determines the weight that it can cast out, to include the weight itself and any bait. In this case the rod performs at its best when casting weights from 100g up to a maximum of 250g.

I have spoken to the supplier about this for you.
They say rod's are categorised by the max weight of bait you can load - in this case it is 100-250g. They say this will be sufficient for fish found in UK in shore waters - they also say you will find further advice on fishing forums
I hope this helps
Thanks for using Argos Q & A

I think it has a 15lb line so easy 12lb fish. You still need to buy stronger line 60-70lb for a shock leader otherwise all your tackle might end up at the bottom of the sea.

Thank you for your enquiry.
The term 'test curve' is generally reserved for carp and specimen rods. With beachcaster rods we refer to casting weight which indicates the minimum and maximum weight range that the rod can cast at maximum distance with maximum control. The optimum loading capacity for the rod in this set will range between 100 and 250 grams.
