I purchased this rod as a light hybrid bfs setup for Louisiana Reds and Specs. This rod is combined with a Lews custom lite reel with 20lb power pro v2 with a 20lb flouro and is extremely light weight. The rod feels very good in hand and I am loving the mesh grip feel. I was fearful at first upon receiving the rod. It is so light that I figured if i hook a 36"+ redfish, it might break the rod, but old18 assured me I should be okay as long as I finesse a fish that big in the boat.
I went to test it this weekend on sand bass at a local lake and could immediately tell it could easily handle some big fish.
These rods are superb quality.
This is a re-review of Old 18 Bouyancy. See review titled "Confused".
Old 18 contacted me and corrected all issues with my order. There were some communication issues between the reps who changed the order and the shipping personnel who apparently did not get the memo. However, the correct rod was shipped, and my son is impressed with the product. We can wait to try it out on a slot redfish, speckled trout or flounder.
Thanks to the people who put a smile on my 15-year-old boy's face at Christmas!
