My review of this rod is very similar to other users. I use it to catch bull reds from a pier in South Louisiana. We too, have to counter the fishes ability with heavier tackle. Losing a fish to a pylon is never fun, especially if he somehow gets hung up on it. So to avoid that we use a heavier line so the fish can always be worked off the pylon. A strong rod like this one always helps do the trick.
Great Extra Heavy Rod!

I use this rod to catch uluas, or giant trevally, off of a fuel pier in Kane'ohe, HI. These fish are known for making numerous strong runs, and have a bad habit of running directly under the pier. To counteract this, we use VERY heavy tackle to be able to stop these runs if they do go under the pier. This rod (with a Shimano Saragosa 18000 set a max 44 lbs of drag) handles this pressure wonderfully! Even with the drag set this tight, these fish are easily capable of taking several yards of line per run, and this rod easily handles the stress, absorbs the shock, and applies ample pressure to the fish to turn it away from obstacles.
ProsVery resilient, plenty stiff, and lightweight. Capable of casting large 1.5 lb baits.
ConsGImbal cap is tight at first, but eventually loosens up and falls off occasionally.
