Great pole for the price
Purchased this pole to heave the heavier lures that I have for the Cape Cod Canal. The lightweight allows me to fish all day and the length allows me to cast out further than I have even been able to reach. Pole is strong enough to endure the canals flow but reactive enough to let me feel the hits. Love it.

Great rod
I paired this with a Penn Fierce II reel, and tried it for the first time on the LBI, Jersey shore. I had onshore winds up to 15-18 mph, and was able to cast my rig a good distance. First cast, I caught a 21" striper. They weren't biting that weekend for anybody, and that was it for me. I am no expert-this is my first real venture & investment in surf fishing equipment, and considering the casts I was making and the feel of the rig in the water & the fish on the line, I think I made a great choice.
ProsCasting distance against the wind & feel of rig in the water. That's enough for this amateur.

Performs well, exactly what as expected
I have the 1551 model paired with my penn Fierce. The rod performs well, cast smoothly and you get a good distance with braid. action is great to pull in those bigger fish. I mainly fish for strippers during my trips to Hampton beach and this rod performs just the way I expected.

I surf fish for drum. I typically throw weights between 4 - 8 ounces plus bait. What length spinning rod would you suggest to give me the greatest distance. I have the Penn battle 8000 reels and the fierce series reels
1 Answers
I would lean towards the 12 foot squadron. You throw 4-8 oz lead with bait and that's exactly what that rod is rated for.
