Great pole for the price
July 13, 2018
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
May 9, 2018
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
April 12, 2017
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.

Is the 8ft medium rod good for casting lures and plugs?

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 Answer
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.
