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
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.

What is the weight range for lures that I can cast with this rod? Will I be effectively able to cast lures such 1oz swim baits for tarpon and cobia? Thanks

Unfortunately, the rod is out of stock right now. The rod will definitely throw 1 oz lures and is perfect for Cobia and Tarpon.
