Featherweight but strong

Putchased this rod as a designated Blackfish rod. I paired it with an Accurate Valiant 300. The total package is super lightweight, while retaining enough backbone to pull fish out of the structure easily. I will probably use this for Fluke and Sea Bass as well. Not cheap, but a high quality rod.
ProsVery lightweight, strong backbone.
ConsPrice point is high, but was able to purchase when TD had a 20% off sale, that made it more reasonable.

Purchased this rod for deep water bottom fishing and Nantucket for dragging bait. So far the rod has handled 10 ounces without issue and was sensitive to bites.
ProsGreat for deep water bottom fishing when 10+ ounces is necessary

This is a top of the line conventional rod, I have paired with an Abu Garica Beast. Powerful, very sensitivity, with an outstanding finish. I use this rod for inshore and deep water fluke, I would definitely recommend this rod. I've already caught two fluke with this rod first time out. I'm sure it's capable of handling Tog and Seabass as well. Highly recommended.

Very nice rod , excellent finish, filling, sensitivity , power , nice cloth cover. I use it for deep water fluke, definitely recommend for black fish,sea bass and can handle easy blues and decent stripes . I gave 4 stars because weights 8.8 oz not 8oz and there's no information about their guides used. Highly recommended.
