  1. So I'm looking at buying my first surf rod for lures. Not sure what type of fishing I'll gravitate towards but essentially would like a rod that does well from the low end rating to the high end rating of the weight specs. Originally I was eyeing up an 9' ODM Genesis but while doin a lot of research I've seen the okuma rockaway rods get a lot of good reviews and at only 100 bucks a stick, much cheaper. For those that have had experience with okuma rockaway, how do you like it? Good for lures? How accurate is the weight range? The thing that kinda had me sold on the 9' ODM is that many reported the rod being able to handle its full range of weights. 1/2 to 3 oz. The okuma has less of a range in their rods. Thanks in advance.
  2. Was thinking about purchasing a 9' genesis for throwing 1/2 to 2.5 ounce lures? I got a 10'6" shimano speedmaster that I think I'll be using for bait and wait. Just wanted a separate rod for plugs and what not. For those who have experience with the 9' genesis, how do you like it? How the action on it?
  3. I did post a joke, not once but twice. For some reason the post is like a pink color and it says 'hidden'
  4. A bear walks into a bar and asks the bartender, "Can I get a whiskey and....cola?" Bartender asks "What's with the big pause?" Bear shrugs his shoulders and says, "I don't know, I was just born with them"
  5. What pound braid for 9 to 10' rods throwing 1/2 to 3 oz lures is most common? 30lb?
  6. Looking at my first surf rod setup. Wondering how many people use braid for lures?
