Anyone have any experience with this rod? It’s MH, moderate, and rated 2-5 oz. 

 

How does it handle 1 oz. bucktails? And is casting a 4-5 oz. plug exhausting (probably)?

It will throw a 1 oz BT ok. I’ve done it but I really didn’t get a good feel on what the BT was doing. I think that is the more important part then getting it out there, if you understand what I mean. The 1201L is a better choice for throwing lighter lures. It’s personal preference I guess. Good luck

Thanks for the reply, and that makes complete sense. I’ve heard multiple guys refer to the bucktail as an extension of your hand. 

 

My concerns with the 1201L are whether or not it can easily handle big fish, and if I’d find myself gassing out from catching loads of smaller fish. Do you have any experience fishing a light power rod?

I think you’ll be just fine fishing the L and yes it’ll handle big fish. If you can still find them.

Yeah what’s up with that? Hoping there’s a restock coming

I believe it is a medium not medium heavy.

I noticed some confusion there. On the lamiglas website, the title listing says medium but the description says medium heavy

I have the GSB11MS 

How does it fish around the upper and lower oz. ratings? And where does it shine?

I would say for an 11 its probably a medium with 2-5 oz rating. a mh 11 foot would be more
