Handling a big fishYesterday I caught a 6 1/2 foot shark on this rod, after fighting for a little over an hour and chasing with the boat a mile or two. The rod handled 150-yard drag screaming runs, big head shakes and having the line go under the boat several times. We decided not to bring the fish into the boat and cut the line at the leader. I was happy with the performance of the rod but would recommend using a rod with more backbone if you are targeting sharks. This one hit a pinfish under a float and the same combination caught a gag grouper and a nice Spanish mackerel earlier in the day.

Great rodWhen I first saw the new rod I was concerned that the first guide was on the small side in order to fit in the case. However, I can cast this rod over 100 yards with a 1 to 1 1/2 oz spoon. I use this rod both inshore, offshore and for casting lures in the surf. So far my biggest fish is a 27" Spanish mackerel that put up a great fight.

great rodLike all Okuma products, a superior bang for the buck. I purchased mine from Cabela's in anticipation of a trip to Belize. I used an oversized 5500 sized reel [also Okuma] with 30 lb mono - rod is rated to 25 lb. - nevertheless - i was VERY pleased. Rod held up to small tuna and a 44" barracuda. A couple of fish broke the line - but i have NOTHING bad to say about this rod. The Barracuda dove beneath the boat repeatedly, causing me to fear rod might snap - but it didn't. This is a GREAT rod and case. [case has enough room to transport 2 SST rods within.]
LOVE this rod. It's the correct size for a rig pre-set for a cast while fishing from a boat... the sort of rig you want ready for when an unexpected opportunity arises.

Excellent knocking around rod!I couldn't find much in the way of online reviews on this rod so figured I'd do a thorough one here. I purchased this (8.5'MH) rod for keeping as a "back of the car" rod that will be used for shore casting for stripers and bluefish here in NE. I don't think I could have made a better choice at twice the price. Why?
-It fits perfectly in a 44" rod on reel spinning rod case (that I already had.). The whole package fits nicely into the trunk.
- Balances perfectly (at front of foregrip) with a 40/4000 series reel. Makes for a light and handy rig in areas where there is more walking than casting.
-Initial test show it will cast a 3/8 oz plug on 14# braid an honest 55 yds with ease. 7/8 oz had me over 75 yds without struggle. I haven't tried anything heavier but believe the rod to be correctly rated.
- Sensitivity on the rod is great. You can really feel everything transmitted up the braid.
-Backbone and action is a perfect fit for throwing poppers and jigs to fish in the 5-25# class. 11" butt section is just right for plugging/fighting fish. I have no doubt this rod will handle anything I intent to put it through.
Why a 4 vs 5 star?
- Build quality is VG but not perfect. Cork is Ok but has notable fill. We'll see how that holds up.
- While the guides are made of excellent materials (ring and frame), they seem a little light. Durability could be an issue.
-Alignment dots on the sections would be a cheap but welcome addition.
- Lastly, the tube is "Ok " for airline travel but I think one that allows storing the rod with a reel attached ( and ready) would be worth a few extra $ to most users.
