Outstanding all-around salt water rod
May 21, 2013
This rod is a great inshore back water rod for anything from flounder to medium blues (5-7lbs) and is a true workhorse. I owned the first one I bought for 6 years now and it still looks and feels new after the punishment I have dealt it in that time frame. I bought a second because I am intending to use them as part of my guide/charter service with clients because I feel they can stand the test.
Pros:Great performance with braid, I use 20and 30 with no problems. Price for value is very good with this rod. I match it with Penn slammers for an all around inshore outfit.
Cons: If there is a flaw at all it is the reel seat. Graphite and it tends to loosen on its own and I have had it "pop" under heavy strain.
