7'11" Punching rod
I have the 7'11" Punching rod it is very tip heavy and unbalance. i have it paired with the chronarch 200E7 which is the reel that is meant for this rod. the reel is nice i hate how they bumbed down the quality of there reels. the rod is pretty sensitive and not very heavy either handles 65# power pro great.

Well to be honest finesse application's is where the spinning gear shines as the reels have smooth drag. But if you are set on using the chronarch be sure that the rod has a limber tip for the light line and to handle the head shakes.
