This is a great all around, general purpose conventional rod. These rods are extremely durable and should last you a lifetime. They are 7′ tall and great for casting heavier lures, throwing a couple ounce sinker or for setting the hook bottom fishing. They have been a favorite rod for Striper fisherman for years. We use these rods for just about every fish that you can imagine from Snook, Jacks, big Redfish, Tarpon, Flounder and even offshore fishing too. They are a great match for the Avet SX or MX reels with 20# line.
