The do it all, medium-heavy casting rod designed to fish medium-sized soft plastics, soft-plastic jerkbaits, 1/4 to 1/2-ounce jigs and big topwaters. The extra length (7'1") increases tip-speed, which in turn, extends your casting range, helps you recover line quicker and is a big help with hooksets, especially in deeper water. A great alternative for fishing 4-5" hollow belly swimbaits. Fish this rod for small stripers, pike or redfish. A great all around casting rod.
