Clearance starting at:
Tackle big fish like catfish, striper, and largemouth bass. These rods have plenty of backbone and muscle, yet without large diameters and weight. The secret is in the unidirectional fiberglass construction that eliminates the layering normally found in fiberglass rods. This process also adds flexibility, eliminating premature breakage and stress on the wrist. Features an extended EVA foam handle, for extra power and fighting leverage, that easily fits in rod holders, heavy-duty double foot aluminum oxide guides, hook keeper for pre-rigging and sensitive graphite reel seat.

I have the 7'6" rod which pairs great with my 4500 sized reel. On many occasions this season, I hauled large bluefish out of heavy current , and the rod handled it just fine. I used it from the riverbank, in the surf, on jetties, and from a boat, with no complaints.
The rod is rated 1/2 to 2 oz, and threw these weights well, but 1/2 oz was below its optimum range, especially while using 30lb+ braid. It really flings 1&1/2 to 2&1/2 oz, though, which suited me as I like to toss wooden plugs around those weights.
I wish this rod were available in longer models, it would be a solid and affordable choice for surfcasting.

I use this with my bass pro mega cast reel and my ambassador 5000 and 6500 series. Worth the money.

I bought this rod specifically to throw the Alabama Rig, it does an outstanding job. My previous rod was only a medium duty and with the weight of the A-Rig it was an ounce or more of weight I and it eventually it bent the guide at the top of that rod. This bad boy, no problems at all. Can be used for catfish and saltwater fishing as well. Although its fiberglass construction its alot lighter than I thought it would be. I bought the 6' 6" Medium - Heavy (2 piece) I couldn't be happier with it.

Bought this rod in the 7'6" version for my son in Kansas. He took it trolling for Walleye and Catfish and said it performed perfectly. Demonstrating amazing power and backbone. I actually bought a 6' 6" a few years ago and have loved it as well.
Would abosolutely consider buying another one.
