In the market for one of the older Legends. Just not a fan of the looks on the newer models (fantastic rods I know, just personal preference). My question for you guys that fish the older rods with the lowriders, how are they as far as fish fighting power and durability goes? Thanks!

 I owed the 10’6” lighter lure weight version. It was a nice rod never felt under gunned using it. Never put a fish over 30# on it but it would bend down to the fore grip with a good fish.  It was a good pencil rod, I used it as my all around rod for a few years I’m just not a fan of two piece rods anymore.

Same durability and fighting power as the new ones. I own both versions and I still use the old version for about 10 years..

Awesome. Just wanted to make sure it won't snap after using it as a cane around rocks

If you get one put a butt cap on it.

90% of my fishing is in Boulder fields with wet suit.

 

Just buy a butt cap for the older version to protect the bottom. Newer versions come with a protective butt cap. You will not find a better rod for Boulder fields..

The older model LSS106MM2  10'6   3/4 to 4  sees 90% of my plug work. Paired with a VR175 it is a light setup that tosses quite far.

Mine is going on 10 years and I never felt out gunned on any fish.
