Default Anyfishanywhere rod wow

Got the estuary rod today. Georgeous rod. Wow is all I can say... feels like a feather.
Looks put the lami to shame. Action feels awesome.
Cant wait to cast it and fish it. Very soon.

Thanks to Tommy farmer at Carolina Cast pro and John freeze (thumburner) at Any Fish anywhere

ive been eyeballing the posts by suds about this...now jim....i guess it might be time to start saving a few bucks huh...i must admit the budget rods i own work well for me...but i really want to know what a top quallity one feels like. i dont own a rod that cost more than 100 bucks, i quess its time to stop being cheap....i always do this...dammit. i was bragging about the distance i get out of my bass pro ocean master rig...its true i get good distance..but the day after my shoulder is sore...more than it should be. does a top notch rod help with this? or is it just me fishing sun down to sun up...casting continuously...

You are welcome Jim.

They really are impressive rods. From the 11' Estuary to the 14' Big Beach. Designed for a purpose and deliver on performance.

I use the Lamiglas graphite surf and jetty XS10MS. 2 piece lure weight 1 to 3 ounces. line weight 14 to 30 pounds. Moderate action. It has a nice soft tip.
Spinning reel with a 704Z.

I have a 8'6" kenai special g1314T for 1/2 ounce to 1/3/4 ounce plugs. Its paired with an abu 6500 C3 ambassaduer.
Doesnt get a lot of use. Its a steelhead rod.

when you fish the anyfish rod...let us know what you think...be honest. sudsy seems impressed, thats an opinion with much value...now its your turn. both you and suds call it a home run i might just have to start putting some cash aside.

Still thinking about getting one myself, but hung up on length and action.

I just traded my Lamiglas XS 101 MS away for a 9' Arra 1084 for my son (and anyone who spends much time here knows how much I loved that rod - do a search and you'll see)
Don't need the big lami anymore, the 10' 6" USA rod absolutely smokes it in both distance and touch, that and my 30 year old Fischer 8720 is still the king of pencil popping rods. I may be done with the big Lami sticks.

The XS 10 MS is thinner 1 to 3 oz and lighter.
Thats why I got it . Taking sud's advice. Love the rod.
The estuary rod has a great feel to it. Same 1 to 3.
Suds What spinnning rod have you paired your AFAW with or are u strictly conventional?
They can be built to handle either.
It seems to excell with the conventional over the spinning reel.
But i havent fished it yet. Just casted it with an abu and a penn spinner.

I had a momentary brain fart and said esturary - I meant the 10' 6" USA rod, built spinning.
I have it paired with a Daiwa Surf Saltiga for the open beach and bay and I use an Abu Cardinal 807 for fishing the rocks and for jigging the rivers and inlets (It's a much tougher reel then the Daiwa.)
I've never thrown spinning gear this far in my life.

I'm looking forward to plugging with the Estuary rod. I think that one and the 12' universal rod with a foot nipped off the butt end, both built dual purpose spinning/ conventional with lowriders, are going to be truly great multipurpose rods for the North East.

By the way, I swung a 7# fish up and over the rail this weekend just to see if the ferrule could take it. Handled the abuse with no problem (not that I would recommend doing that if you can help it). The ability to take a beating is why I just promoted it to take the place of my old glass river jigging rod.
