I got one over the winter on a recommendation from a friend. He has a couple and loves them so i decided to try it. First impression was it was a little stouter than i like but after fishing it im really digging it. I've been using it for 10" power worms and am very impressed with the sensitivity. I've also thrown mag drafts hudd 68s and glides like the 168 s waver. I haven't used it for jigs and flipping plastics much yet wich is what i intended to use it for. Only downside i came across is it was a little tip heavy with a curado k but i added a little weight to the but with a chair foot cap and washers and i would recommend it especially for the 200$ i gave for it.

I have had mine for a few seasons. I believe it is the same rod as the perfect pitch just longer.

I use mine for punching jigs and for larger pike lures in the 1-2 oz size. I also use it for a frog rod depending whas in the boat etc. I have mine rigged up with a z2020 with 50lb braid and really enjoy, but probably reach for my perfect pitch more often than not.
