Took this rod to Bahamas for fishing trip and performed well for a 3 piece rod, great action. handled 80lb shark and several grouper very well. My friend had a Cabela's 3 piece rod that did not come close to comparing to this rod for durability and action.
Beautiful rod, a little softer than I expected, but still a very nice action. Great balance, it would be an excellent Steelhead rod, but I'm using it for Surfperch. I was planning to take it to Cabo San Lucas for a light surf rod, but it's a little too light to use off the beach. It would be a good rod for light tackle "whipping" in the surf in Hawaii.
First I would like to say I am a Daiwa fan and I buy exclusively from them. I was excited about the rod's debut and found the awesome price hear at Overstock. I received my rods super fast ( 7'0 MH, 7'6 H) The rods are constructed really well for the price point and are very light. They fish great and load up on fish well. The only problem I have with this rod is the hook keeper. It is located on the side of the rod. Almost every cast, my line gets caught in it and I have to move it out of there. I haven't lost any fish or damaged line because of it. Honestly its just annoying. If they would have put the keeper on the front like Duckett Rods are, it would be a superior rod for the price point.
