i dont have one, but ive use a friends and its a VERY nice rod!!! on the other note there custom which makes them a little pricey.

Cobia Slayer, That Tica/ Penn is a nice set up. I'm sure it gets the job done.

 

Yes, some of my outfits are a little pricey, but I guide part time, I work in a B&T shop, so there are some benefits. But there are some major drawbacks also.

No, what I'm saying is Because I work at a B&T and Guide part time, I'm able to afford pricey stuff. (Demo models, guide program, tax write off, no sales tax.....). The draw backs are when guiding you are not really fishing, you are guiding. And when the fishing gets good, you get busy at the shop, so you don't have time to go fishing. I once had a guy try and pick a larger drum up with a newly wrap 8' trout rod,beatin.gif now it's a 7' 4" sea mullet/croaker rod, hurt my feelings.frown.gif
