I've had one for about 8 or 9 years. Very nice fishing rod. It has enough power in the butt and midsection to handle 8nbait with a tip that is light enough to cast down to 4oz and give great bite detection.

The drawback to me is the thickness of the butt. Mine is about 1.25 inches.

I have one ordered from T. Carroll in late 2004....it has a 1 inch butt and is 13 7 3/4"....new condition.

I also owned one from 2000 that's sounds exactly like Tommy's....12'6" and thick butt....the thick butt is the reason I let it go.
