Shimano® Trevala® Butterfly® Jigging Casting Rods
lot of rod for its size
although this rod looks small don't be fooled as long as you don't high stick them they will catch anything. i have both a 5'8" 80-200lb model paired with a torium 20 spooled with 80lb diamond braid witch i have caught an 11' tiger shark on in under 30 minutes and a 6'6" 80-200lb model paired with a torium 30 spooled with 65lb diamond braid which i have caught a 72lb wahoo on

This rod is unbelievable! Pair this rod with a Penn TRX (Torque) 100-300 depending on the rod size you chose and Power Pro line. (I prefer the 60-130 Lb Trevala with the TRX 200 and 50Lb Power Pro) One of my buddies (Capt PJ Sykes) uses the same rod with the TRX 300. PAir these two together and you will notice the change on your first trip out. First thing you'll notice; Even with the smallest live baits, you'll feel it, even in 200+ depths, second, you can feel your weight hit hard bottom, even tell if it's sand/mud/rock. Then when the stike comes, you know it instantly! This rod is Ultra sensitive and has the backbone of the heavier "Uglier" rods. You will never be sorry for spending the money on this, or the reel for that matter. The TRX reals are another animal all together. I can assure you, you will appreciate your decision. Good fishing, Mike

This is a good rod but not a great rod. A lot of people have had problems with this rod breaking but I think it is from high sticking (trying to point at the sky with the rod tip). It does not have as much backbone as I would like but it is a decent reel for the money. It has a good design and it is built with quality components.
