Been a great rod for false albacore. It is light and has plenty backing to fight the toughest fish. Sensitive and easy to make long casts.
Bought the rod for my annual striper trip on the Cape in September. I’ll review it once I’ve commissioned it. My buddy has the same rod and says it’s the bomb.
Great w/ top water plugs and swim bait for blues. Might be light but you can't beat the fun and action if you're into light tackle. Will be getting a second one as soon as they are available again....
Love the action of this new rod. was hoping to match it with a new Van Stahl 50 but the reel seats were not the same size. bummer but the Diawa Salstist MQ is very happy. Looks great and like I said so far loving this combo. And the service and shipping from Saltwater edge was so impeccable. Cant forget the quality shipping tube. haha well done. :)
