Rob Crowder knows Florida fishing and makes rods that work well. I already own more than three dozen, ranging from very light inshore rods to heavy duty sticks for swordfish and wahoo. The Sportsman line is strong, light and durable and I use them for trolling for everything from Spanish macks to dolphin, tuna and wahoo and they can toss a hefty lure right in front of a cruising cobia.
Pros:Strong, light and durable with a lifetime guarantee.
Cons:The sportsman line is pricey but you can tell the difference and with the lifetime guarantee I can easily justify a few more bucks.
