I absolutely love the accuracy and light weight the pair of 6'10" Mediums have gave me the last 2 seasons now. The third addition is the 7'4" Ex-Heavy. The action isn't labelled on the rod but feels like a Med-Fast taper. Stiff tip bends lot's in the middle of the blank. Should be nice for fishing my 1/2oz Swim Jig's with a 4" Swinging Hammer. I fish them in pretty heavy cover and have done fine with the 7'1H & 7'3XH Expride rods. This setup just feels more sensitive and lighter with a tad more backbone & added length. Can't wait to fish it.
The Exsence DC looks awesome on this rod. Think I'll leave it on for the next season.
I'm interested to hear how you like the 7'4" XH when you get a chance to fish it. I've been looking for this rod for awhile to do a few heavy cover applications. I'm disappointed that they stopped production of the Poison Adrena line.
