I am a big fan of this rod. The GLX 954 FPR is where it is at for me punching. Warhammer is solid as well, but traded it away after using the GLX. I have purchased the Steez AGS 8' H that I'll try this upcoming season, but will use more as a flipping and pitching rod then just punching, but we'll see it has a nice feel to it.
How does the 8ft AGS feel? I was always wondering about that rod for punching. Is it stiff? Does it bend quite a bit down the blank under load?
Sorry this took me a few days, but I haven't used it at all, but I wanted to give a legit answer so I needed to get it out. The rod is light as you'd expect. It balances extremely well, I didn't really check that at first, but very impressed. The tip is definitely a heavy, but not at all a meat stick. It fully loads at the 4th guide from the tip. I think it'll have plenty for 3/4 & 1 oz punching. But again this is without on the water time. Hope that answers some of your questions. Will update when I get some on the water experience with it, which might be next spring.... From MN... Boo
