Been fishing a 1265 for the past 7 years. The absolute best!!! Probably my most fished surf rod for any kind of artificial. It also can handle a 2oz  weight and small bait.

Get a century stealth graphene or century surf machine graphene.... old ss and s are rods of the past.... they are the Bugatti of surf rods... last rod you will ever own

I'd hate to think of the status of my 120-1M, and the 1208, and the 1322 .... now everyone will know I'm not one of the cool kids. I'm so embarrassed.

I actually shark with the rod 4-5 oz and a chunk. 

A little loss in distance due to being over the rods weight abilities but man lots of fun when u hook up.

Wow! I’m impressed! 

 

You are right though. The Century Slingshots series are the only rods that I own that can throw far beyond there highest rating. When I first bought my first Slingshot, Ryan told me the rod can throw its highest 

weight rating PLUS bait. He was not lying.

I was casting today with a pre-graphene SS 1327, testing the swimming properties of various plugs that I have tweaked. Tweaking plugs is one of those small fishing-craft skills, like tying flies, that can take on a life of its' own, isn't it? The current graphene might well buy a couple of feet, or even yards, more distance (assuming a nicely aerodynamic tin). The older version is still a delight to use, even down at one ounce.
