I have the 15 foot spinning rod.. The top half of the rod is very flimsy while the bottom half is too stiff. This rod is so very heavy that it tires your arm after the second cast and it kills your arm when you try fighting a big fish. The only pros for this rod are the great super long casts it gives (but requires much effort), and daiwa's well balanced rod sense. Daiwa somehow managed to get the heavy rod balanced perfectly for casting. I wouldn't recommend this rod, try the tsunamis which are closely priced and much better.
