Outstanding Bang For Your Buck
April 15, 2015
One of the best bangs for your hard earned buck out there. Plenty of backbone for fighting those big red drum bulls at Cape Hatteras, Ocracoke, and Cape Lookout, yet sensitive enough for catching those puppy drums as well. Eventhough rated for up to 8oz, I have thrown 6oz weight and 3-4oz of bait with no problems. I predict that this rod will give me years of good service. I would buy another another or two, without hesitation. Would have given it 5 stars instead of 4 stars (wish there was a 4.5), if the eyes were a tad stronger.
Pros:Plenty of strength for casting heavy weights plus bait catching those big 30, 40, and 50 pound red drums, stripers, or catfish. Long handle for really putting the pressure on those big fish. The distance from reel seat to the first eye is 32", which is the optimum distance for my Penn 350M LeveLine reels.
Cons:The eyes, while sufficiently stong, could be stronger. Heavier rod than most of your graphite rods.
