I have the full line of Okuma Nomad Travel Rods because did kot know which ones to choose for a recent trip to Baja Mexico. Brought the 7' M/MH, 7' L/ML Boat Casting Rods and 7' H/MH inshore bait caster loaded into one of the travel rod cases and caught Football Yellowfin, Yellowtail on Salas yo/yo jigs and bait to 35lbs, Dorado to 25lbs, Calico Bass to 8lbs. Rods perform like one piece rods with a progressive flex action and plenty of backbone at the butt. Double rod tips are a nice touch but found I didn't bother to switch tips. Used 40 to 50lb mono tops on 55 to 65lb braid. Connection is the "European" spigot ferrule and for those that don't know about rod building that is a superior ferrule connection system than the one that 99% of the multipiece rods you see built and you will see a lot of ignorant reviewers complaining of that connection. The only complaint with the rods is that the very nice looking and high quality Alps reel seat is designed for the older larger reels such as Penn 4/0 senators or Internationals with larger reel seat foots and wider spaced reel seat brackets as the feet on the newer smaller reels such as Accurate Valiants 400 and 500's, Shimano Talica 12ii and Avet Raptors sxj's do not fit tight /snug into the reel seat rings and therefore the reel feet need to be shimmed with tape. Furthermore, to add to this issue the aluminum reel seat although very nice looking is a triangle shape making it too wide for the spacing for the reel seat brackets on the reels to fit onto the reel seat so I needed to remove the bracket posts from the reels. Too bad Okuma still uses these seats on the Okuma Nomad and does not change over to the cheaper but more functional graphite/composite reel seats used on the single tip Okuma Nomad Express line of travel rods or use a narrower round Aluminum reel seat that will allow using a reel bracket. I like the action on the Nomad series rods and the optional tip more than the Nomad Express rods as the Express are slightly more stiffer farther out towards the tip
I have had this in use from the Chesapeake to the Caribbean. I have it paired with a Cedros Baitcaster. There are two tip options. It manages good sized fish inshore and top water off shore. Durable and handsome.
