    2 more from Master Skrilla...

    These 2 rods come with a story I won't get into but I've been waiting for these for over 8 months...patience pays off. Thanks again Len for coming through with these...you're the best. Yellow one is a Cousins 90j and the white one is a Kencor 9' 20-40#.

    Right off the bat, I see (3) 7' rods rated at 30# line. All 3 are probably simalair. Those would be 30# baits rods.
