Great Action, Feel

This rod has excellent action and backbone. Great rod for the price and looks excellent. Compares favorably to much higher priced rods. Limited out on Sea Bass using it on a recent trip on the Morning Star out of Ocean City Md.
ProsLightweight, strong and reasonably priced

Best Bang for Buck
February 14, 2019
Gotta say, for what I paid for this rod (7' 40-80 braid class) I doubt it can be beat. Have it paired up with a baitrunner 8000D and have used it to jig up African Pompano, Snapper, Kings. Pretty strong but feels pretty light in your hand with good action. I recently bought a competitors rod in the same weight class (to match with another reel) to save a few bucks and am extremely disappointed. Shouyldve just got another Talavera
ProsGood Action, weight, but still solid
ConsNeeds a hook keeper, and maybe a stronger eye at the tip

One of my favorite rods!

A really nice rod with a great action, at a great price!.

If aesthetics are important to you, you couldn't find a prettier rod. It's a perfect match for my Shimano Thunnus C14 12000.

I bought the medium-action model for stripers and inshore fishing from piers and the beach, but I liked it so much that I plan to buy a second one, this time a medium-heavy model, to take to Florida for tarpon.

Can I pair this rod with a Diawa BG 5000 with 50 - 65 # braid.  Inshore bottom fishing and sometimes casting lures. 
1 Answer
Yes, the BG5000 would be a good match on this rod and will allow you to do some bottom fishing, while also having the ability to cast lures with ease.
