Great live bait rod!
June 14, 2013
The rod was not in stock at the time I placed my order, so it came drop shipped direct from Seeker.
The packaging was not adequate and I feared I now had a two piece rod. (Box was broken open in the middle) The rod survived and is matched to an Avet MXL MC in Gunmetal finish. A very nice looking combo. The butt section is a larger diameter than expected considering the line class. The action, size and feel are similar to my St Croix "SlingBlade" musky rod. I was concerned at first the rod would be too light to cast the heavy weights I am using for Lake Sturgeon. Not a problem at all! This is a very capable well built rod.
Pros:Light weight, well balanced, strong, with pleasing colors used in the build.
Cons:Fit and finish are one notch below a comparable St Croix rod. IMO.
Pac Bay reel seat is not a perfect match for an Avet reel foot.
