Do you guys think my Shakespeare Synergy 7'0" Action: Medium (6-12 Lb. Line) Rod will work for fishing Coho?

I'm changing spools on my reel to add 10 lb. line

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Strong enough? Yes....

What type of fishing you doing with it?
With that short of rod I take it throwing spinners?

Exactly

Thanks for the reply Mike.

Yes, I went last weekend with my wife's Grandfather, he had all his equipment so I didn't need any of mine.

But yes, I have 10 Lb. test on there, and plan on just throwing spinners, maybe trying to fish a Kwikfish too.

Just want to make sure my rod doesn't snap in half if I land one!

Nah not a chance of snappin' it... You're line will snap before the rod.
Just keep the drag set about right. Keep your rod tip up and never point your rod straight at the fish, that puts all the stress on your line.

will work fine like they said set your drag right so the fish can run when he wants to.... a lot to do with the longer rods people use is so you have less line in the water and a better angle to drift\bobber fish....
