TLS80HBBL - Excellent Medium Duty Stick
June 6, 2019
This rod can do a lot of work for striper, cod, deep drop, schoolie tuna, and bluefish applications. Feels very sturdy and worthy of bigger game, but is not a total pool cue. Love the grooved fore grip, also showcased in the Terez lineup. Very happy with this rod. The possibilities are endless.

Great Rod
May 16, 2019
This rod has great sensitivity and you can pull the big ones out of their holes. It's light enough to be fished all day without getting worn down and looks great. Paired it with a Shimano Torium 30 and it worked perfectly.

This is a great rod for casting distance with heavy mono line. Used for Sturgeon fishing. Would get 5 starts if they made one that was 8ft and had same stats.
ProsNIce power, and looks great.

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!!!!

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
October 29, 2017
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.
