Offshore Angler™ Redfish Extreme Spinning Rods
The light rod in this line is a medium action and the heavier rod is a medium heavy. I have 2 of the med-hvy versions. The optimum lure weight for this rod is about 3/4oz and it really flings a lure of this weight well. Casting a 1.5oz lure really flexes the rod excessively and it plainly doesn't like it much. If you cast 1.25oz and heavier lures regularly, get a rod with 1oz as the low end of the recommended weights. If your lures are 1/2 to 1 oz, it's a very nice rod.

Great rod one Major issue!!!
Awesome rod for the price. Fishing the flats and back bays for Reds using Pin fish. I want to buy many more of these rods to outfit everyone on my boat, but I will not buy anymore until the hook set issue is resolved. Designers listen up fix this now pull them and fix it . It may seem like a little thing to most but if your using multipul rods at the same time slinging baits all day it's enough to make you want to throw the rod in the drink. But other than that best feeling rod I own. Offshore Angler Please fix. I want more.

Great rod, great value!
Great rod for the value. Purchased the medium heavy (12-20lb). Rod is very light and feels great in the hand. First use, fished with live pinfish. Rod has great sensitivity as you could almost feel the pinfish swimming through through the grass. Put an Okuma Trio 55s on for bigger Reds and Snook. Overall very pleased. Only slight disadvantage is no hook saver on the rod. Cant wait to use it again.

Great light ocean rod
I love these rods. Very happy with the responsiveness. Feels sensitive but strong when it needs to be. I can feel the little nibbles even in the waves and have pulled in a pretty heavy fish without concern. There may be a reason to spend more on a 7' in this weight class, but I don't know what it is yet.
