My family purchased a Shimano Soare BB Ajing rod for my brother. After a few months of fishing this rod, it is now his absolute favorite! He has caught 3” largemouth to 25” Coho with this rod. Larger fish have not been a problem. Just remember to keep the rod tip at a low angle when reeling in fish. This rod casts spoons like a rocket.
The attached picture is a 25” Coho caught on a Daiwa Crusader 5gr Pink/Silver.
Thank Chris for helping us select a great rod!
