I have 2 of them I wrapped as spinners. I use them for bait in the river and when the ocean is calm enough to hold with 5oz. I have also throw 2 1/2oz pencils with good success. I love the blank.

I have one wrapped with low riders for casting both spinning/conventional. It is my favorite all around rod. It has an easy action coupled with great power and it feels like a much shorter rod. I used it primarily for throwing metal (it loves 4 oz!) but it works well with bait as well. It has a sensitive tip for detecting bites. Tommy Farmer, one the top power casters in this country, has casted 7 and bait -- which is well beyond its design specs -- and it casted it well. I like the rod enough, I bought a second blank which will make as pure conventional.

Good luck!
