Plenty of muscle to fight what's on the other end of the line

Had several fish on this rod. Would have landed them if my knots were as good as the rod. Looking forward to many years of use on the Salmon River. Steelhead and salmon beware!

Brought in a decent sized salmon with this rod. Matches up nice with the Shimano Stratus reel I purchased for it. No salmon is safe.

Light tackle surf setup.
September 29, 2015
This rod paired nicely with the stradic ci4+ 3000. Very light combo that I intend use for light tackle surf fishing the Chesapeake bay and Atlantic beaches. I've thrown jig heads with gulp, kastmasters, spoons etc. It handles the light stuff well and can throw an once+ If needed. I'm spooled with 20lb 832 and it casts great. I could probably even step down to 10lb braid for the lighter lures. I've caught schoolie stripers to 20inches on the 2 occasions I've used it. I have heavier tackle but never really hook up on anything that large except cownose rays so going light makes the fight more exciting. Great rod for walking the shoreline for schoolie stripers, flounder, croaker, bluefish etc. just make sure to wash after use since it's not really built for heavy surf use. Minus one star because I didn't care for the guild tip. Would be nice to have the smoother guides frames that doesn't get the line hung up on it.
ProsLight Weight Cork handle and grip area Looks good
ConsOnly one year warranty I think Guide tip
