Rated 5 out of 5 by buckshot00 AMAZING!!!
It feels great with a spoon or plug and has the right amount of movement at the tip, but has a amazingly strong backbone!!!

I fish in saltwater marshes for redfish, flounder, and speckled trout and I'm in a small, flat bottomed boat, with no rod holders, so my rods are piled on top of each other, banged and bounced, to and from the fishing spots, plus I bring several rods and reels with me. You'd be amazed at the size of some of the fish I have landed with these "bass tackle" size rods and I have never broken one. I have UGLY STIKS in all sizes and I have complete faith in them. "Beat 'em with a STIK", I say.

I would like to buy the 7'6" ML casting. I am thinking it will outcast the shorter 7' ML and might be more parabolic fun. I intend to match it with a Daiwa low profile baitcaster. Any owners of the 7'6" ML have any good comments about their rod. Thanks.
Light is an alternative term for fast - so a medium/lt rod would be faster action than a medium. Faster rods will initially flex / bend closer to the tip giving a more progressive resistance as pull increases. Slow action rods bend along the entire rod length and have a more linear resistance curve.
