The quality and finish are great. The overall design for The Nomad Xpresscould could use some major improvements. The rod is very stiff and brittle, and as a result all the load is contrasted within the tip section of the rod. These rods will work fine for small fish but if you need more than 10 pounds for drag, or force, will probably break the tip ferrule or tip, as has been my repeated experience. The model I've been using was Ntxi-S-703MH Nomad Xpress. My advice to Okuma would be to incorporate some fiber glass and work on better load distribution with in the rod.
ProsLight weight, good quality and finish

Hello, my question is pertaining to the action/power of the Nomad Xpress rods. I will be fishing SW Florida in late March for LM bass up to 30/40lb Tarpon. Would the ML or MH be better suited for the applications? Would the MH be overkill for bass/snook? I'm not looking for the regular nomad series with two tips. Thank you!
The ML Okuma Nomad Xpress Inshore Travel Rod would be best suited for the applications.
