I used my new Daiwa 31sr that i bought from tenkarabum last night and today to catch some small bluegills. It worked great. I used some #3 level high-vis yellow line, 4 lb. test tippet and a small pheasant tail nymph for the trial run and was pleased by the way it handled the combo. It is one sweet and reasonably priced little rod. I can see it getting lots of use in the future.
