Some friends and I were out on a charter Saturday out of Barnegate. I was the only one fly fishing (they all thought I was crazy). They kept telling me "your rod is going to snap like a twig". I am happy to say I caught 14 blues in the 15 - 20 pound range and at times my 9-10 weight was bent completely in half but came through with flying colors.
I bought this rod from a guy on FAOL who goes by the handle Smernsky. I know his first name is Ed but can't recall his last name. Anyway, the rod is well worth what I paid for it, I haven't had that much fun fishing in a long time.
