The shorter versions make great boat rods - I use the 8’ MH 2pc. rod for heavy vertical jigging and trolling in my kayak and boat for stripers, and it does not disappoint. It’s a bit too slow of an action (not stated by manufacturer, but probably Moderate to MF) for casting and retrieving plugs or swim baits, but that’s not the point of this rod.
  • Graphite
  • Tough
  • Large Guides
  • If you intend to use the 8' version for surf fishing, it won't make a great plug rod - it's best at throwing heavy lead and chunks.

Great performing rod. Bought the 7' heavy action spinner, paired to a Penn SSV4500. Awesome light weight combo. Can throw plugs all day without wearing out your arm. Did great work on schoolie to keeper sized stripers. And had enough backbone to put the brakes on a 50lb bass.
  • Great rod for the price. No complaints.
  • Cork tape on rear grip wore after a few boat trips in rod holder.

Great rod, well made and great feel. Love the aesthetics and performance. I'd give it 5 stars but I feel like it's a little lighter than what's it's rated for. I have trouble trying to load up and throw 3oz plugs. Wish I could exchange for the 11 foot Heavy. All in all, for the price and quality and performance 5 stars. Great value

A substantial rod, capable of handling big lures and baits while still providing a sensitive and powerful action to handle those big Stripers.
Compares very favourably with significantly more expensive rods.
  • Price. Good quality finish. Powerful action.

Great rod for the price

While I have not had a chance to fish with this rod yet I am impressed with the build quality. I like to keep one heavy action surf rod around for those times when you need throw 8-10 ounces past a sand bar. From what I have seen so far this rod should work perfectly. After matching it with my trusty old Penn 750SSM I tested it by tying a 5lb kettle ball to the line and lifting it off the ground and bouncing. If the rod is going to fail I won't it to fail at home, and not when I have a big Bull Red on the hook. It handled the kettle ball with no issues, I was impressed.
  • Great price for a quality rod.

Nice light rod. Plan to match with Penn SLAIII6500 for bait fishing or Penn SSV6500BLS for plugging the Atlantic. Just waiting for April 15th (opening day for stripers in NY) to put it to work.
  • Light weight. 50/50 split makes it easy to transport in a Camaro.

Beast of a surf rod.
  • Tip is still sensitive enough to see small critters hitting at your bait.
  • Gimbal little wider than my other rods. Had to go up a size on pvc surf rod holder. Not really a con but just do fit test before heading out.

Good Looking Rod

Good looking rod, seems well built and lets me cast far.

better than i expected

I originally got this just for a rod to mess around with for cocktail blues or tiny bass under a bridge when they were migrating. after a couple uses, I realized this is waaay too stiff for my liking. so instead i ended up using it as a fluke + flounder rod off the jetties. even if stated as a heavy rod, should still allow some bend. feel like i'll snap the rod before i let the rod dip 20 degrees.
  • sturdy, great hook sets and sensitive
  • rigid, barely any bend before you can cause damage to the rod.
