I bought the 80-130 class rod and I have had it for three years. I have used it for offshore fishing on head boats out of Port Aransas 20+ times (the reel is a Finnor 7500 w/ 80lb. braid). I have used it to flatline for African Pompano, Ling and Kingfish up to 50", I have used it for jigging for blackfin tuna numerous times at up to 300ft., I have used it to bottom fish in ~200ft. of water for A.J. & Grouper up to 40lbs. and big Sow Red Snapper, Dog Snapper, etc. This rod has more backbone than you need for what I described and it is well within its capability for these purposes. It has held up well, it is lightweight and is quite sensitive too so its not as if it takes all the fun out of average or smaller fish. I would highly recommend it without even considering what a value it is for $70. I have personally recommended it to friends who want to come do the same sort of fishing with me.

These Rods are an excellent value. They are extremely sensitive and have the strength to haul in anything you hook.
The reason I gave these 4 stars instead of 5 is because the reel seat is too small on it. Neither my Quantum Boca 80 or my Penn Battle 7000 would fit in the reel seat. For a rod designed to handle 100 pound braid I believe the reel seat should be able to accommodate a size 70 or 80 reel.
