Wanted to report on this rod as it was the first rod I have ever bought sight unseen.  I have one of the Lexa Flippin sticks and really enjoy this rod for brush hogs but wanted a spinning rod for light applications this winter....drop shot...small shakey heads etc.  Well....this rod is a 7' 2" med light that has a TON of backbone.....a TON.  It's rated for 4-12 but this rod has some serious shoulders.  At least for this guy.  Used the rod with eight pound power pro and  a 6 lb silver thread leader and caught the tar out of the big smallies yesterday and only broke one off on a hook set so was a good day.  Believe come spring may use this rod for a larger shakey heads as it will fill the bill nicely.  Anyway love to start fishing with a new rod and it catches first time out....yup...really do.

In he past, DAIWA rods have been known to be underrated in terms of power. My m zillion has the power of a mh and my mh is basically a h. I try to take that into account when browsing their stuff.

Good to see a review of these rods though. The Lexa seems to have been the seguay to the tatula and kinda got lost in the shuffle.
