Daiwa® Beefstick® Surf Casting Rod
i bought this rod as a replacment for an older one that i had and had broke. I didn't have a very big budget to work off of so i ordered it online i have to admit that i was a little sketchy at first with the price but needed one asap. I have very surprised when I got it and used it for the first time. The first time I took it out pulled in 6 cats that were all over 30lbs a peice and it preformed flawlessly. I have it paired with the bass pro shops snaggin special with 50lb mono on it and I know that with the size of the handle it seems a little intimidating as far as casting but with a 3 to 4 ounce sinker it will cast for a mile it seems like i know cause i bounced one off a boat out in the lake I was fishing and the guy on it was a little surprised as well as myself but all in all this is an amazing rod for the price and is comparable to any rod it the 100 dollar class and up

Alright I have read some of the reviews, and I will admit at the very first I was not really super crazy about the look and design of this rod. It looks chunky and and heavy and unbalanced and honestly a little difficult to use being that the handle is nearly nearly 4 feet in length. But with the right weight set up and reel it will make a bait sail without issue. And I know for a fact that though it wasn't designed to do so it will handle what I am told was a 130 to 150 class tarpon, I would have been able to know for sure if the guy who had the gaff would have come down the pier to me when I was yelling "tarpon" but after 5 minutes or so of it laying on its side the line finally gave out. But this is a good rod for the price and can handle fish way outside its weight class. would buy another one without hesitation.
