Powell Max 710Mh Telescopic

Recommended Posts

If you have fished this rod give me some feedback on it. TW got me (again) and I ordered one for 112$ today. 

 

What is the minimum and maximum weight you'd pitch/flip with it. 

 

Thanks

I have one. But i paid more than that! (Good deal!!!) Lowest ive used on it is 3/8 ounce jig with a trailer. Ive used as much as 1.5oz punching with it. Sweet spot really is around 1/2 with a trailer. 3/4 T rigs feel good too.

You will like it alot.

Oh and mine isnt telescopic. Ive always been affraid to get a telescopic rod. But it does have alot of back bone, ive boat flipped 4 pounders in the boat. Its good with braid and you dont have to cross their eyes to set the hook...

Thanks for the feedback man, great stuff! I had a feeling you'd probably fished one and was hoping you'd comment. I have never bought a telescopic rod either and have been hesitant to buy one, but with the price i figured it was a good time to try. I mostly flip/pitch 1/2-3/4 with the occasional 1.25oz so it sounds like it should be golden for what I need. 

 

Is the action a true fast or more of a mod/fast in your opinion?

No. Its like a mod fast. I have began to think that Powell rates their tapers faster than they should. I have 2 723's that say XF but are really a true fast action. You wont have any trouble getting a positive hook set. Between the length and the heavy action you dont have to swing hard. I use 50a lb braid and sometime 16-20lb leaders FC . The taper is also easy to load with 1/2oz and trailer. Makes for easy pitching.

How soon before you guys in MN start fishing

Thanks again Teal. A lot of my pitching rods are more mod/fast so it should work well for me.

Fishing opener is May 25th up here in mn, long ways away lol. I do fish a couple boarder water lakes that open mid April, thankfully. These big sheets of ice are pretty depressing.
