A good spinning rod for fishing flats where there's more cover and you need a little more power to turn a fish. This rod is powerful enough to handle larger fish without overpowering the angler. It's a great rod for fishing for larger fish like permit, snook or snapper. In fact, it might best be described as a heavy-duty popping rod; kind of a blend between the heavier 20-pound sticks and our popping rods.A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.
