Default 1st rod

Finished her in Feb - 7'6" Conventional robert's wrapped - I put an Acurrate 197 on her.

This was the first bass I got with her just south of Trenton NJ on the Delaware River.

Nice fish...
I see you decided to twist the guides around the blank. I've seen some rods with that. Whats the advantage?

Nope,
Though I would like to, the price is steep for a tourney where I'd have to match my personal best Striper in order to place :roll:
