I was very impressed with this rod for the money. I got the 9’ 3/4-3 and the rod throws half an ounce very well while throwing a two and a half ounce plug with authority. The rod has a strong back bone and I think it’s a perfect early season rod. The grip is very nice with a fatter section on the bottom that allows for a great grip. A small feature I really enjoy is an over size tip top guide that lets a ta clip through. All and all it’s a great buy for $200!
This pole is exceptional. However I will say that I have limited use for its application. I think this rod is perfect for jigging. In particular at the CCC. Stick bates as well. I’m not keen on using this for any sort of plugging/popping/eeling.
Grabbed this rod for a buddy as an early wedding gift. He loved the sensitivity and castability. As always, great customer service in helping me pick out this rod.
Excellent rod for the money, allows schoolie bass to give a good account of themselves. Paired with a VSX150 it is a light, durable combo.
