Cast whatever you want to cast with it.
Remember it is not a long range casting rod.
We tested them at Bloemhof in the sloep fishing 50lbs braid and lock and hold fishing, broke some braid and hooks but no rods.
Fitted with Fuji BNOG Guides and a Biofiber composite blank, no rod is unbreakable but I'm sure this one is damn close
Craig what is the retail price on these rods? Both the 8&9 ft
