*Aluminum Uplocking Reel Seat with Fighting Butt
An Awesome RodBy: Steve on 17 January 2016I bought this rod in an 8 weight from John's shop for a trip to Lord Howe Island. The day I got it home I had a cast in the backyard and immediately fell in love with it. I just found this rod felt so natural it was like an extension of my casting arm. It punched out line better than rods I used to own and which you can pay two to three times the money for. When I got to Lord Howe, the wind was pretty strong for most of the time, but this rod really showed what it could do. Talk about a confidence builder! It handled the wind without any trouble at all. The fishing was slow by Lord Howe standards, and the silver drummer in the gin clear waters at the jetty would of been a lot of fun if the fish hadn't of bitten through my leader. The hook ups didn't last long. Longer shanked hooks next time, but this rod will deliver the goods next trip there. Love this rod!!!!!
