I believe there is a small difference in the amount of carbon fiber the blue saltx is 40 ton the forged 36. I don’t know how much of a difference it makes maybe Scob can help

Rod could be ok. But a fast rod for throwing pencils is not what you want. Can you do it sure but not optimally. 

 

a rod with fast recovery is not neccesarily a fast actioned rod.

I've done stuff I ain't proud of, and the stuff I am proud of is disgusting.

Has anyone had a chance to handle the 10’ 7 saltx2 yet? How did it throw the upper and lower range. Seems like it might be a great rod for the money

That 9'7" seems very interesting to me, but this seems to me like an odd price point for Tsunami.  What are the comps here, what are this rod's primary competitors?  I had been considering an ODM Genesis 10', seems like this would line up.  Would be looking for another rod to pair with my VR50 or VS150 to throw tins, bucktails and poppers up to 2.5 oz.

None of the rods are made with 36 or 40 ton carbon.

Primary difference is the guide choice.

Stainless SiC K / KW guides on Forged 

Titanium K / KW / RV (rv on 9'7 and 10'7)

 

Grips a slightly different on the 8'7 and 7'7 when comparing the two series of rods.

So I got one of these 7’7 salt x 2’s a couple weeks ago. I paired it with a Vanford 4000. I just now threw on a power handle for the Vanford. I’ve gotta get the reel spooled up, but this setup is setup so light weight. OMG.

I actually got the rod because of you, and the icast video.

 

What did you pair yours with? Like I said I put the Vanford 4000 on mine.

Awesome!   I hope you like it as much as I do.

It Salt x 2 4000, Stella 4000, exsence 4000

I think I'm going to grab a mini Saltiga to pair with it.

Hey Scoobydoo, I bought the 8”7’ and paired it with a vr75. In my test casting, it casts the entire lure range quite well. The action is listed as moderate. Although the rod loads like a moderate action rod, it “feels” faster. I saw in another thread here on SOL where you mentioned the action of the 8’7” was unique in this series. Would you mind elaborating a bit more? Would you agree with my observation? I’m pleased with this setup and plan to actually put it into action this weekend! Thanks
