When you're throwing large, oversized deep-divers like a 3/4-ounce Fat Free Shad or a DD-22, this is a rod you'll really appreciate. It's got the power to make extremely long casts, fish the baits as deep as they can run and handle any sized fish. An excellent choice for fishing the grass and over humps in deep-water situations. Will handle small swimbaits as well as any rod we make and talk about long-distance casts... this is the ''cat's meow''!!
