Been using this rod for large mouth bass fishing. 7’ 6” MH version is what I’m using. It’s a solid built rod and I’ve really enjoyed using it. I’d say I’ve used it close to ten times so far. Also, I recently visited the HQ of Bull Ball Rods in Lakeland, FL. Very nice and friendly staff there. If you like something made in the USA and also something made in the Sunshine State. I’d grab one of these poles. Should add that I have this paired with an OSPREY CARBON 2500 reel.
