Moderate action rod for big metal lips

Looking for a proper rod to throw heavier (3oz+) metal lips. Was between the century stealth 1266 and lamiglas gsb11ms. Certainly open to suggestions but wanted to hear others experiences and opinions with these rods for the given circumstances.

Check out the new Tsunami SaltX 11' H. It is rated 1-5oz and handles the top end of that rating extremely well. The prototype I was fishing last season I threw all the usual large metal lips in my bag (JLH Maples, BillyD Deeps, and GRS slims) IT handled a giant JLH jointed donny which is around 6.5 oz and 11" better than I could have hoped. The rod has great recovery when punching into the wind. I'll have them at RISSA if you will be heading to that show.

Century S2 Stealth is an awesome rod.  Extremely versatile.

I like the price point. Would you say its a true moderate action

Have you looked at any of the black hole rods. It’s honestly next level. Have you thought about going more towards a good medium heavy/heavy 10 footer?

I have and and all of their surf rods are listed as moderate fast on their website

Got to agree with this. Cant beat a 1321m for this.

I recommend you test fish a New Generation Century Stealth. It would be on my short list - when "Moderate" rod is what you are looking for. 

 

Tough overall to say what the best/proper choice is. So many good rods out there already mentioned and preference/use will play into this. I have reasons for recommending the new Stealth if it is in your budget. Light, Moderate Action, Parabolic Bend down to the end of the grip, amazing Tip, sensitivity you feel in the entire rod; strong exterior. I can't say that it is the best at everything. But I can say for me it is the best all around rod that has given me the most enjoyment when fishing in the surf / local beaches for bass. 

 

I'll reiterate...I don't think this rod would be appreciated fully on a test casting session alone. Fish it a few times.

Yep another moderate rod would be the cts vapor trail. stealth and vapor trail are very close. I owned both at one point.but kept the vapor trail.
