Was having a hard time finding a rod that fit my needs. And old 18 had exactly what I needed. Excellent rod and quality!
Amazing rod will be buying more! Only issue I had was by the time it arrived at my house the eyes were bent, once they were fixed I tested out the rod and fell in love with how light and sensitive it was.
This rod handles the 6th Sense Draw very well. I expect it will also be good for the Alabama rig as well. Also, I believe it will be great for big swimbaits such as the Megabass Magdraft. I haven't caught any fish in it yet, but I'm sure it'll handle fish fabulously as do All of my other Old18 rods.
