so i got a few hours in with the z bone 7'3" 5 power hvy moderate action today tossing around some baits on the bank to see what it was all about even caught two fish on the test run. So as i first held the rod it felt just a tad tip hvy but as soon as i mounted a reel on the rod it was great. I do not have scales so i cant get the weight, but the rod is pretty light for a 5 power. The action of the rod kind of reminds me of the megabass fmj 6 power just a little bit more moderate bend throughout the blank when loaded up. i threw a 5/8 oz swim jig, 3/8 oz football jig, and a 1oz tungsten weight with a missle d bomb for the bait. it handled all the baits really well that i threw. 3/8 is probably the lowest i would go with this model however. I put a daiwa sv 103xs with 55lb sunline flipping frogging braid on the rod. tomorrow im going to put a lighter reel on it with fluro to see what it looks like. The rod has great power and the mod action model is awesome with braid no doubt. Im curious about the sensitivity with flurocarbon because it was super sensitive with braid one of the most sensitive rods ive used. I still cant define is it trumps nrx sensitivity will need a lot more time on that matter. Over its a great rod thats pretty versatile and the sensitivity is there for sure.
