Offshore Angler™ Redfish Extreme Spinning Rods
Excellent quality and appearance
I bought one of these in the medium heavy class to add to my arsenal of inshore saltwater rods. I paired it with a Quantum Cabo PT 40 spinning reel spooled with 15 lb. test diamond braid in blue. I solved the problem of a lack of a hook holder on the rod with a Fuji EZ Keeper. This is a well balanced and stout outfit that should handle anything in the bay that wants to take a chance with me. It is also a very nice looking combo. I'll find out if it is up to the task in a few weeks.

I bought it for using in the marsh creeks at Pawleys Island NC.
2nd fish I caught with it was a flounder not much larger than my hand.
Set the hook on it and the tip snapped completely in half about 1 1/2 foot from the tip.
Took it back to MB BASS PRO and got a St Croix MOJO inshore instead.
Great customer service.

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.

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.
