Amazing Rod
As soon a i felt this series rod i was in love. Was not sure on the MH or H but settled on heavy. Its light enough to use in the bay fluking or out in the deep for seabass. Was not sure on this of the Trevala S but settled on this due to the limited life time warranty. The guides are small but i have had no issue.

great rod
Ive been using this rod on my party boat trips. perfect for fluke, sea bass and porgies. The rod has a nice backbone and is sensitive enough that you feel the slightest of hits. I like the longer butt which allows you support the rod against your forearm allowing you to use one hand /arm
Proslight and strong
Conscould be a little longer than the 6'4"

from DC asked:
October 27, 2018
Which Daiwa or other brand reel would match best for this rod? Mainly be used for Northeast inshore to catch togs, sea bass, sheeps, etc. I have trouble finding reel that will sit low enough because the guides are very small. Regular conventional reels sit up so high compared to the position of the many guides on the rod. I don’t want to lose the sensitivity because the line is not straight but forced to be in a high angle closest to the reel.
1 Answers
I would recommend using the Daiwa Lexa 300 Type HD Baitcasting Reels, These reels have enough drag power and line capacity for tog, sheepshead, and seabass.
