Outstanding Rod I bought two of these (8' models) at the 2007 spring fever sale. I love the rods so much that I quit using the custom built rods I had. They are light but have great backbones. You can really drive the hook into the hard mouths of cobia. Also took these offshore with me several times and light-weighted some big red snappers and groupers. Did have any problems turning the groupers around. I did buy two more this 2008 spring fever sale. Nice job BPS! March 12, 2008
Cobia? strike that... King Special! I bought the 8' model, and I didn't buy it primarily for Cobia, but for fishing Kings & Bull Reds from the Gulf State Park Pier. The 8' feels to me to be a nice Medium Heavy with a Medium Action, it does fine for slinging heavier live baits, e.g large LYs, Cigar Minnows & Spanish Sardines. I matched it with a Penn 704z and it balances nicely, and isn't too heavy for a day of pier fishing. I now have three Offshore Angler rods, and all three meet & exceed my expectation for rods in their prices ranges. Offshore Angler - Ocean Master - model OM12SS, surf/spinning, 12.0', 2pc, 6-12oz. Offshore Angler - Power Stick, model PSS71017, 7.0', 10-17# line, 1/2-2oz, Light Lure Action. July 11, 2013
Fantastic Rod for multiple fishing styles To Get a rod like these 8' or 9' will cover both inshore and offshore needs. They are good and solid with backbone, yet can cast as far as your reel permits. Don't let the name "Cobia Rod" detour you. They were custom made to fill the need on the Gulf Coast when cobia run. They throw a jig forever,yet gentle for live bait. The backbone was specially made for setting the hook and hard(unless you use circle hooks). Then just reel. I've used mine for most saltwater fishing. Even in freshwater for catfish,stripers and other large fish. I can't say enough, best ever designed and good price. Good Fishing- October 13, 2009
kings, kings, and more kings i matched it with a penn 750 and was ready to go this summer. spent nearly the whole time on the pier just pullin king after king it even stood up to a 7 and half foot bull that stole my LY then later on in the trip went on a party boat and hooked up with a 39# mahi handled him no problem September 17, 2007

# Line Test?

Details: 
These rods say they are rated from 15-30lb test line. Could I use 40lb PP and be alright? Or should I go down to 30lb?

A: 
When the line weight used greatly exceeds a rod's specifications a rod may break before the line parts. You might stay with the 30lb test so the rod does not bend and break. Thank You!

A: 
We suggest checking your local regulations first. With that in mind, if you need to cast a good distance this would be a good choice. However, if you do not need to cast very far, a shorter rod gives better leverage for fighting fish.

Details: 
I would use this for casting for tarpon. Would be using 20-30 lb mono and throwing large swimbaits around 1-2 oz and smaller suspending baits under an oz. I would also like to throw a hogy every now and then. Would i be able to easily twitch a lure without using too much energy and have enough backbone to bring in the big one?

A: 
I don’t see it working well for the small baits under an ounce. For cobia jigs, the bigger swimbaits, bigger Hogy it should work. It takes a little energy to move an 8’ rod, but it does not take much movement at the butt end to move the tip a pretty good distance. Backbone, you are at the wrong end of an 8’ lever, you want a rod to load properly otherwise you are getting pulled over by being on the wrong end of the lever. The rod loads down past the tip and gets into the mid section to effectively shorten the lever so you can fight the fish and not hurt yourself (well if you are a healthy person).

A: 
I used it for surf fishing when wading and casting. With braid I was able to cast very far. It is not a set in the sand and forget surf rod - that is not its purpose.
