Why call them Extreme? The word “Extreme” is somewhat overused these days, so with these rods, we’ve tried to stay true to the official definition, which is (according to Webster’s Dictionary) “exceeding the ordinary, usual, or expected.” We have packed every possible ultra-high-end feature into the strongest, most profoundly sensitive package, and still kept your investment under $100!

Here’s what you get: We start out with an immensely powerful yet feather-light 60-million-modulus Powerwall IM9 graphite blank, then wrap the butt section with a new diamond weave carbon fiber to enhance lifting power. We top the blank with virtually frictionless, mirror-polished
Fuji aluminum oxide guides, and we finish the blank with the most durable clear-coat available. The grips are turned from ultra-premium-grade cork, with our exclusive PowerHump handle to aid in balance and enhance fish-turning power. The full-contact, Soft Touch reel seat
puts your fingers directly on the blank so you can feel even the softest bite. The result is a fishing rod that is farthest removed from the ordinary, that is anything but the usual suspect, and that far exceeds what you expect from a rod at this price point. By definition, these rods truly are extreme!

3-Piece Travel Model:
These handy (yet no less Extreme!) 3-piece rods have all the features of the 1- and 2-piece rods, but break down to a nice compact size that you can keep in your trunk or carry on a plane to avoid high baggage fees. Includes a FREE nylon rod sock and crushproof rod tube with Cordura® cover—a $19.99 value. Tube measures 31".

PowerHump Handles:
Our specially contoured, premium cork handle design gives you enhanced leverage and an increased sense of confidence during the battle!

Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides:
Polished to a mirror-like, friction-free finish. Extremely durable; precisely spaced for perfect line flow.

Full Contact Soft Touch Reel Seat:
Lightweight, rock-solid reel seat locks your reel in place, and the blank-thru construction puts your fingers in direct contact with the blank for the utmost vibration transmission.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for travel The packing tube fits in my duffle bag for air travel. In fact I can also include my fly fishing rod in the same tube. July 10, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Rod Ever 3 hours into my fisrt fishing trip with the rod and the top portion of the rod brooke in half while casting a worm. April 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great performance 3 piece I took this on a trip to Dallas last week to do some bank fishing on the weekends and after work. I caught a bunch of decent fish and even when the bite was soft I was able to feel it, set the hook and bring them in. I fished with light shakey heads, weightless finesse worms and even put the drop shot on it. I have the Medium-Heavy model and it did extremely well with those finesse techniques. Needless to say I love this rod and will probably add the other 2 to my collection to use when I travel. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Company The fishing rod is high quality and what a bargin. I should have ordered 2 at the sale price. I can't believe that the socks have a free lifetime replacement. Thats unbelievable. December 17, 2012

A: 
Yes Bill, I do not see why you can't use these rods for that purpose. They make two different kinds of travel spinning rods and one has a medium heavy action to it. I use the medium action mostly because I freshwater fish for bass and walleye, but I've purchased the med/hvy action rod for a trip off the coast of Japan and caught some nice size grouper in the 6 to 10 lb range and the rod performed well.
