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.
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.
It's a Lamiglass, it's arguably the best brand name/ material you can buy in a fishing rod and deservedly so. Flexible like you cannot imagine and able to take more than it's rated in the hands of an experienced angler. Super forgiving if you're an intermediate and an eye opener if you're a novice. This is top of the line fishing equipment. I pulled in a 14lb striped bass from the surf with this rod. It took some time, but the rod held up as I was aware of the rod's ~5lb max pressure and the fight was worth every second Five pounds of constant pressure is enough for this type of fish if you wait him out. The sensitivity & whipping action of this rod is phenomenal it can toss a 1oz lure the way it should be tossed. Tons of fun with this rod's action, just take your time and let the rod do it's "thing" when you hook-up. If you like to "muscle" the fish in, this rod is not for you, (unless you're going for fish 3lbs or under).
