This is a great rod I used it multiple times never had a problem!
Wish it lasted

This rod was great. Super sensitive but super strong, enough to handle 20lb drum. However the guides on this rod use inserts and the 2nd, 3rd and 4th guide inserts cracked or fell out after the 3rd time using the rod. The inserts become sharp enough to slice your line on cast. And forget trying to get in contact with the manufacturer. They are notoriously impossible to get a hold of.
ProsStrong, sensitive, pretty
Consguides break or crack, very hard to get guides replaced
Great all-around inshore rod

I purchased the 7'6"M rod and received it quick and in perfect condition. Always great packaging and shipping from Tackle Direct. I paired it with a Shimano Stradic Ci4+ 4000 w/ Daiwa 20lb X8 J Braid and used it over the weekend in Tampa Bay and Clearwater Beach. I caught spanish mackerels, magrove snappers, small gag groupers, sheepsheads, grunts, silver trout, and speckled trout. This rod handled them with ease. I was able to cast small 1/8oz jigs up to 1.5oz weights with no issues. I also hooked up to a HUGE jack...the rod itself did fine, but my reel was no match for it. Overall, I am very pleased with it and will be slaying many more fish with it.
Favorite inshore rod

I’ve used and abused two of these rods. Very sensitive tip which is awesome for sheepshead (you feel any and everything). I have pulled in 30 lb drum and jacks with these rods with no issues. Very lightweight and comfortable rod. I bought two and I’ll buy more. Also they look pretty sweet.
Looks cool but didn’t last the season

Bought the 7ft MH to use for fluking and inshore about half way thru this season. After about 7-8 trips the reel seat separated from the blank and started to twist. The fancy openings to allow you to see the blank at the reel never had a tight fit. Ended up having to fill in the cut out of the reel seat with rod building epoxy from mudhole using a syringe. Still not perfect but better than tossing. Also, the butt of the rod has a metal disk instead Of rubber or cork. Makes more likely to fall over when you lean it up against a wall

Great all-round rod

Be it 30 lb redfish or 2 lb trout, this rod provides excellent casting, unbelievable strength and is ultra sensitive. One of the finest off-shore rods I've ever picked up.
