    9.9 out of 10. Fished once and killed a bunch of cod. I think I am just too tall for this rod, but it is really nice. I would like to trade for either a tesoro, a united composites rail rod, or a visx20(plus some $) Anyone interested hit me up and I can text you pics.

    Feedback on Okuma Metaloid 12

    Hey guys, just wondering if any of you bd'ers out there have had an opportunity to try one of these out yet. It is time for me to finally step up to my first two speed, but I am working with a budget of $450-$500 for reel and rod, so I am pretty limited in the reel side of things. Also, any...
