Excelllent rod! Probably the best rod under $200. Sensitive enough to pull progies and flounders, strong enough to pull tautogs, stripers,and blue fishes. Highly recommended!!!!

awesome rod
I ordered 2 of these. Mated then with a bg6500 and 1 with a Penn slammer3. Love them both mangrove snapper, grouper, sharks. Rig them right and you'll pull anything up with these rods!

Solid rod
The tallus is a solid rod that I use for trolling and jigging. I have a Spheros 10k on it and have caught nice kings without any problems.

Mangrove digger
Love this rod for pulling mangrove snapper of the reefs. Plenty strong enough to dig them out of the rocks but with plenty of feel to know when they are messing with the bait. Also strong enough to pull up the occasional grouper. Paired with a penn clash reel. Cheaper than the Terez rods that are also excellent but a little expensive for my pocket right now.
ProsStrong and light

Overall great rod
Have this rod paired with a Cabo 60 and they match well together. Great feel and balance plus a pretty stout backbone on the rod.

from Rhode Island asked:
January 9, 2014
Is this rod a good match for a Shimano Saragosa 18000 using 65 lb powerpro to use for popping for tuna?
1 Answers
This rod would be a great choice for that reel and purpose. To increase your casting distance, you could even look into a 7 or 8ft rod as well.
