Picked up this rod to target specks and reds in the Gulf and as my light tackle rig for plying the back bays of Long Island for schoolie bass, flounder, fluke porgies and weakfish. I went with 725s because it has a bit more backbone then the other sticks in this line and covers a wider range of lure weights. Hence I get maximum versatility and I won't be scared to target a bigger striper, bluefish, bull red or even a tarpon if the occasion arises. I paired this with a Van Staal VS150 which balances and compliments this rod perfectly. Lethal!!!
Pros:Great looking and well built. Sensitive but with plenty of backbone to target and land a slob when needed.
