great rod for the money
September 19, 2014
This rod looks beautiful with all the components that is used, from the ALPS guides to the Pac Bay reel seat. It is super light for being a 11' rod. I can cast with this rod all day, just make sure to match it up with a light surf reel. An offshore reel may be too heavy to be holding it up with the rod and flinging your bait beyond the sand bar. That being said, I have not had a chance to hook a monster fish from the surf yet so I can't review it's fighting power when pulling in a fish over sand bars and through the surf.
