A nicely built 2 piece travel rod. It has a strong back bone, good rod action and nice quality guides. I use it as a general purpose rod for light jigging and popping, landed some lingcods and blues around 15 lb and a 43 inches striper with ease.
Pros:- 2 piece rod connected at the handle and provided a one piece rod action.
- Nice rod bag, convenient for air travel.
- Got it at a bargain price of $69.95 from TackleDirect, good value for the money.
Cons:- The rod is a bit tip heavy.
- Not sure if the IM6 rod blank is good enough to handle bigger fish.
