Default Breakaway HDX 13'

I was out on the surf this weekend and noticed a guy casting WAY out there. I was fishing for blues with an fairly old school medium action pole with a penn 704 greenie. Grant that I was only working the first and second breaker and catching some nice snappers. But he was really putting it out there. When I am going for distance I use a Tsunami 11' - 4 - 6 once. But I couldn't even imagen getting that out to where this guy was going. This guy was putting me to shame in my head so I went over to see what he was using and he had a breakaway 13' HDX. He told me it really made the difference for him. At $229 would anyone else recommend this rod? I have a brand new Penn 760 live liner that I want to match up with something decent for the fall run. Any input is appreciated.

I have a custom SU1508 breakaway built by Nick Myer. Awesome rod. These rods are what are known as hattaras heavers. Specific applications are weight and bait or tournament casting. They really get some great distance if thats what you are looking for.
The LDX is rated for tossing 3 to 5 ounces and the newer HDX is rated at 4 to 8 ounces. They are the mass produced factory models breakaway introduced a few years back.
I think they are fairly light for the size at around 13 ounces if I can remember correctly.
Anyway have a look at their web site at breakaway usa.
