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 rod pair well with the Daiwa Lexa 400? I was looking at spooling the reel with 65lb braid.
1 Answers
I think that the rod is a bit too heavy for that reel. As far as the braid goes, it might be a bit heavy for that reel as well.

How long is the butt section on this rod? Are they the same for all of the models or differ by the length of the rod, thanks.
