For what its worth the rod isn't bad..

I put a shelf D7 on it and i'll use it for toads as it loads really well. its a super clean build in my humble opinion.
I'll probable put it through some paces when on monday.. its a pretty versatile stick..

Can you compare it to a similar Zodias by any chance? weight/balance/action? Been looking at these for the kayak

I held the 6'10" mh in store and was very impressed. The feel and build quality were very nice.

i’m getting on the water with this rod tomorrow and will have a better impression of this stick.
i love the way the guides are and the no glossy blank and although astetically it appears to be a dull stick it is just clean
to me. I’ve never used the zodias rods and i can not speak intelligently on them or compare this stick to it.

The jury is still out with this rod. I compare it to my gen 1 cumara rod med heavy 7'2"
It seems faster to me than the cumara. Im still trying to discern the sensitivity of it. Its not heavy and seems very balanced with the D7 almost perfect for the reel..

I have the 7’2” moderate action for cranking. So far I love the action, and I really like the blank. It fishes comfortably and pairs nice with Curado E. I haven’t loaded a fish on it yet.

Ask your local shop. Mine can get anything imported.
