Bought the medium heavy rod and fixed it with the 5000 series reel, wanted to have a good all around lightweight saltwater setup that I could use for most fish I can find in the northeast. Took it out for the first time this fishing for stripers on a party boat in the Raritan. Used swimbaits and flutter spoons and the action of the rod was perfect. Hooked into five stripers and landed 4, all around 28-32 inches long. Fight was good, rod was able to handle the fish with ease. Mates were surprised how well such a light rod handled these fish. Excellent rod would definitely recommend if you’re looking for something with great backbone.
Overall its a good set up .The reel has binding when reeling in a fish not as smooth as i thought .
My hubby bought me this combo after watching blue gabes YouTube videos I have caught fish every cast. but the tip broke off with the last cast and I replaced it with an off brand tip and have not caught a fish since but my hubby just bought me the same set up so can't wait to start catching again. My absolute best rod and reel combo ever I recommend this even for beginners just not beyond braid fishing line it breaks to easy.
I do not fish any other company products other then favorite fishing. They are my goto company for everything I use to fish with, also I am a member of favoritearmy! Go ol salty you won’t regret!
Excellent rod, can't say enough good about that rod.
