Redesigned for the 20-21 season, the Daiwa Proteus Boat Conventional Rods feature a rugged and powerful design to give you the upper hand over the toughest game fish. Designed with heavy lifting in mind, these long, fast action rods provide a super strong backbone for unmatched lifting power, and are a favorite among West Coast anglers for California yellowtail and bluefin tuna. Anglers in any fishery will benefit from having a Proteus on board any time where you need a little extra power to get big fish in the boat whether you're inshore or out in the deep. Built on blanks constructed from Daiwa's High Volume Fiber (HVF) carbon technology, the Proteus achieves the superior strength and rigidity needed for coastal applications while keeping the blank thin and lightweight for comfortable fishing. Also outfitted with Daiwa's X45 Technology, these rods are designed using a 45 degree bias construction that prevents ovalization and twisting of the blank for greater hoop strength under heavy loads. The blank construction is rounded out with Daiwa's Braiding-X design, where an outer layer of carbon tape is wrapped in a crossing diagonal pattern, giving the rod blank a striking appearance as well as improving power, operability, and sensitivity. All models are equipped Fuji FazLite Tangle Free K-Guides to prevent line tangles with braid and provide long accurate casts. The ultra durable EVA Grip provides a solid, infallible connection to the rod.

A very durable rod

This is the first branded rod that I have used. I am using the 2.1m Proteus, and I have used it to catch queen fish from shore. So far, I have caught 11 of them (average of 10kgs each) and never had any problems. And the best one was when we went on boat fishing, a giant manta ray took our bait, probably around 50kgs, this rod gave a good fight for about 2 hrs. Although we lost the fight, the rod proved its worth as we caught another queen fish the following day as if nothing happened. :)

Would this be a good rod to match with a seigler sgn for bottom fishing? Can't decide between the M or MH, I plan on using this set up for seabass and deep water fluke when i'm required to drop lead.
1 Answer
The medium would pair up better with this reel

Hello...I mainly fish out of South Carolina during the spring & summer months where we mainly catch mackerel, jack crevalle, amberjack, barracuda, tarpon, sometimes tuna, and a very large variety of shark. 

I just bought a Fin Nor size 30 2 speed lever drag reel and am looking to pair it with a rod that can match 65-80lb braid. Can you recommend a model? Thanks in advance.

Will the PRTB80MF be ideal for a 20lb bait stick? Or should the PRTB80MHF be better for this application? Going to pair it with a Lexa 300 HD to fish light anchovies.
1 Answer
The PRTB80MHF would be a better fit for the Lexa 300HD using Sardines. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.

will the H model work well with smaller game as well? OAR do you recommend the medium weight for the occasional 100 pounder?
1 Answer
We haven't seen these yet. We would suggest going with the Heavy if you have a chance at a 100 pounder. It will work well for smaller fish as well. It is rated to 50lb braid, so a 100# fish will really test its limits.
