Allstar 1085-2

Greetings,

I have 1085-2 and I love it. I do not have nor have I used the comparable Arra rod so I cannot give a comparison. However the 1085-2 that I have is light, fast action and has significant backbone in it for handling decent size fish. It is a casting machine and handles plugs from 3/4 oz to 2 1/2 oz with ease. I really enjoy working topwater plugs and poppers and it is great for that. It has turned into my basic go to rod when I do not need a really big stick. I had mine wrapped at Hatteras Jack's and could not be happier with it.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

At a 1/2 OZ your really pushing at the lower limit. I would suggest that if you intended to use it at the weight wrap it spinning for sure. Its a great Rod and you'll like it a lot. Big Dave

1/2 oz is in the lower range for the rod but it does work. It is a fast action rod and quick snap casts utilizing the fast action work well in the lower weights. Mine is wrapped spinning and I love it.

 

Best regards,
