I have been using the rod in the Northeast for schoolie bass and squid, but can't wait to try it on larger bass and bonito. It has a very sensitive tip and casting is phenomenal

The 7' 6" or 8' are great paired with a 4k or 5k reel. Light rod, light reel, you can cast forever and may never come home. Strong rod with great guides.
ProsGuides, blank, light, cork, all of it

Fished this rod on a inshore charter. Loved it. Caught specs and stripers on it. Love the light action to the rod. It allows you to feel everything.

The 7í6Ē MH is a versatile inshore rod that allows me to toss a variety of plugs and soft plastics in almost any situation. I have it paired with a 5000 size Daiwa reel.

VIS80F, this is a heavy duty spinning rod but light. I have it mated with a Shimano sustain 10,000. Sure enough, itís able to reel in 60lb blue fin. Itís perfect for 20-40lb species. As it is a stiff rod, retrieving lures is not so great, but more ideal to live bait.

Extremely light. The VIS76MF pairs nicely with the stradic 2500 Ci4. Such a light combo that it floats. Very sensitive. Works great for trout and reds.
