Daiwa Saltist Boat Conventional Rods
I have three of these rods and I am impressed with them. (That is the reason I have three.) These rods have a good backbone and will not tire you out fishing with it all day. It is made from high quality components and the rods have not shown any wear after several months of use. I have been happy with how these have performed and look forward to using them for several more seasons. The only reason I did not give them a 5 star rating is because they are a little on the heavy side compared to a couple of other rods I use. The other rods are $250 each and these are less than $90 though. They are a bargain at this price.

Good, sturdy saltwater rod
Used this rod 3 or 4 times now and I would have to say this is a good all purpose heavy inshore to light offshore rod. For under $100 a very good rod. Daiwa makes some very nice products now, I own quite a few of them. Reels and rods, they've never given me any problems except for mantainance type things, but that is to be expected with saltwater fishing. So far a very good purchase, I am very pleased!

The rod is excelent. Very good back bone and handeled fish well. I am currently fishing for striped bass and using this rod paired with an avet mxl. Landed a 20lb fish last night with ease. Rod is quality and have owned may before

The 30-50 lbs. rod is fantastic. It has a soft enough tip to catch king mackerel with but also has enough backbone to catch tiger sharks with. The only down side to this rod is that the gimbal is plastic.
