    carolina cast pro      nice moderate rod thats easy to load and easy on your shoulders.  makes other rods feel like broomsticks.  

    Thanks, don't know much about them but I am already looking at a gen 1 for sale locally. Is there much a difference where I am better off with a gen 2?

    I'll second any of the Penn Battalion rods. There good buys for the money. I use a  BTL conventional 12' I think 10 or 12 once max, it cast great, I use it with a Penn 990 mag for sharks, and it's my go to red drum rod. It's a 8 n bait.

    This one seems like a great budget rod. Thanks.

    I was able to measure the rod with a caliper  it's either the ctsse 1364 or ctsse1365

    Ok, so I believe the butt diameter is checked around the blank, not around the butt cap or wrapping. And the rod tip is what size the ring guide is, not the diameter of the rod tip.

    This is the previous gen with adjustable reel seat so you can dial it in to your liking.  I have no experience with Shimano warranty but have read they are fairly good with issues.  You can take it to any Shimano retailer for over the counter warranty issues.  It’s a very stout rod/blank for big fish.  I’ve only used it half a dozen times if I’m fishing the ocean surf and need to 8-10oz to hold bottom.  I’m in Virginia so it would have to be shipped.

    Gotcha. Where in VA you located? I have family there and would prefer to have the rod seen in person.

    I bought it from a member on here a few years ago and I have cash 10 Oz and a chunk of bunker  there is no other writer on the rod  

    Oh ok then the only way of knowing if it is heavy power rating is if you can tell me what the tip size is  and butt diameter using a micrometer. 

    Do you know who the other member is? Maybe I can contact them.

    I have a 12' Tiralejo in great condition if you're interested.  Model# TRC120H2.  Has lifetime warranty.  $235 shipped.

    I was actually looking at this one but I could only find it in MH power. I take it this model is no longer produced. l see their lifetime warranty means nothing if you don't have proof of purchase, do you have that? Also, where are you located?

    house brand for Bass Pro Shops.  I have the 12' MH conventional and so far it handles up to 8oz in my football field testing.  It's rated for much more but the 8oz felt like it was enough for a nice smooth cast.  At 6oz I can easily put a lot of ummph into it and not feel like it's overloaded. 

    Yea, and closest one to me is 2 hours away. I'll keep me eye out for them to be in stock.

    Sure! Here are a few pics. The rod will throw 8&bait easily. It throws 10&bait just easily. It’s really nice. You won’t  be disappointed with condition.

    Looks good, I may end up going with this one. The other person with the cts has yet to provide me with the information that I asked about.
