MY FRIEND PURCHASED THIS ROD AND AS SOON AS I HELD IT I HAD TO HAVE ONE. IT IS SO LIGHT AND BALLANCED THAT I CAN CAST FOR HOURS AND NOT GET ARM FATIGUE OR ELBOW SORNESS. IT HAS LOTS OF BACK BONE TO MUSCLE THOSE REDFISHOUT OF THE ROCKS BUT HAS A SENSITIVE TIP TO FEEL THE LIGHT BITE. MY FAVORITE ROD TO FISH WITH.

Looking to purchase a rod to match up with a penn battle 5000. i will be doing mostly surf fishing and other places along shore, could end up goin into open water with it. thinking of spooling 20lb braid and a 30lb mono leader..also do you suggest backing before the braid?
It definately would..was fishing a couple of weeks ago and hooked something really big..rod was bent almost double..no problem for this Stik! I have since purchased two more, You cant beat the warranty and quality of this rod!
The rod will handle that reel but it will be alittle heavy. I was using a pflueger presidente with my rod, 7.6 mh, for stripers off a boat down near the gas docks (calvert cliffs) on the Chesapeake. If you're gonna be casting alot try to keep with a smaller reel to lesson the strain it puts on your arms. You can just load the reels up with braid if you are worried about lb test/yds
It will definately handle Redfish as I have already caught some ... have the 7 foot med. and just received a 7 foot 6 med. heavy. I have swapped over some of my more expensive reels to these rods because I like them so much.You will be happy with either one.
