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. :)

Is the PRTB80HF a good rod for casting surface irons on the west coast, or is it too stiff..? Also, how much does this rod weigh? Thank you.

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 Answers
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 Answers
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.
