Great saltwater outfit
This is one of my first saltwater outfits and it has already proven to be a great purchase. Looks and feels great when tossing jigs to tuna or flylining live bait. It definitely can cast just as far as my conventional setup... Hefty rod that can stand up to big fish and the baitrunner reel is solid when spooled with 50 lb braid. Such a great value!!!

Baitrunner is the Bomb
This rod and reel combo is outstanding- King mackerel slayer! Quality reel was my focus- I fish the gulf coast piers and just offshore: Baitrunner feature performs perfectly with live bait fishing as well as trolling. I had some questions about the rod and customer service responded promptly via email to me- yes; it is a one piece rod, quality at an affordable price-
ProsSee above and- Baitrunner dual drag system ideal for live bait fishing. Quality Shimano product- i still use the first version Baitrunner reel I bought when these things came out- must be 30 years old now and only recently had it in to the shop for a tune up- this new 8000 D version is ideal for Kings , bug bull reds , etc. Rod is economical with quality features-
ConsOnly con is that I'm not out there right now fishing with this combo

It took awhile to catch on up north, but southern anglers in the Chesapeake Bay area were onto the striped bass technique of Mojo balling, (a derivative of Parachute jigging), years before the madness trickled up into the New Jersey and New York... Read More
