The range on this rod is sick, paired with my van staal 250 and 20# fireline I am reaching the spots that I want. With fireline or powerpro super slick this rod has sensitivity to feel lure vibration. I mean I can feel whether the tail on my tsunami sand eel are wagging or whether its been fouled. They are nice and stiff to impart action.
Pros:I fish four nights a week, wetsuit surf fishing around Aquidneck Island and this rod sees alot of action when the conditions warrant the muscle and I need to get the range.
Cons:This is a casting rod and great rod for working baits. In terms of fighting fish you have to make sure you set the drag slightly lighter so you don't pull hooks out.
