A great all-around, light-duty, offshore stand-up rod for a wide variety of species, including school-size yellowfin, bluefin and albacore. It has just the right action for “fly lining” bait, yet has plenty of lifting power to handle sailfish or small marlin. Good for casting to big cobia, too. Freshwater anglers like it for small to medium-size sturgeon and big catfish with bottom rigs. Fits the bill for stripers and bluefish as well.
This spinning version of our 7 foot, 20-pound stand-up rod is terrific for school-size yellowfin, bluefin and dolphin (dorado), and it has plenty of lifting power to handle sailfish or small marlin.
