Offshore Angler™ Offshore Extreme™ Cobia Spinning Rods
Thought it would be a good buy but, I threw a 19 pet spoon for jack Crevalle and the rod broke in half. Upset but oh well live and learn.

I own two of these rods and they are excellent . A little stiff at first but great for casting! I have caught everything from fresh water fish weighing from 2-50 lbs and salt water fish up to almost 500lbs and these rods held up perfect.. I would recommend them to anyone serious about fishing

Cobia? strike that... King Special!
I bought the 8' model, and I didn't buy it primarily for Cobia, but for fishing Kings & Bull Reds from the Gulf State Park Pier.
The 8' feels to me to be a nice Medium Heavy with a Medium Action, it does fine for slinging heavier live baits, e.g large LYs, Cigar Minnows & Spanish Sardines.
I matched it with a Penn 704z and it balances nicely, and isn't too heavy for a day of pier fishing.
I now have three Offshore Angler rods, and all three meet & exceed my expectation for rods in their prices ranges.
Offshore Angler - Ocean Master - model OM12SS, surf/spinning, 12.0', 2pc, 6-12oz.
Offshore Angler - Power Stick, model PSS71017, 7.0', 10-17# line, 1/2-2oz, Light Lure Action.
