I have a lot of rods and I've spent a lot more money on some of them but this one catches the same fish on the same line in the same water. Anyone on a budget should be buying OKUMA surf rods. They are well made. The only reason I did not give 5 fish rating is that they tend to be a bit on the stiff side. I wish they had a slightly faster tip on them.
I found this rod great off the beach in big swells. I thought it cast great with light and heavy sinkers. I landed a 15kg (appox 30lb) mulloway off a nsw beach in australia the second time i used it. I have been lucky anough to of caught many fish since.
