Just curious, have you fished this rod and what about it makes it a rod you are putting the effort in to find? I was lucky to find this blank. I just finished wrapping it. It just needs flex coat. Is it similar to a calstar 800H ot is it a class up?

XH rods are standard 40-80lb rods, I don’t see why they shouldn’t be in at least the same class. Action varies greatly I bet.

Thanks for the reply. I was given this rod but was not explained the exact line class of this rod. It does feel heavier compared to my GF800h. I just want to know where this rod would sit in my line up of rods and what reel to pair it to. Maybe a Accurate 600 dauntless 2 speed?

Yeah. Sounds about right. I like my 40N on a 800XH.

80xh is a powerhouse rod.
Cousins bend is matchless.
The 80h and 80xh, and ,crrxxh rods have that WOW Factor when loaded up on the bend. And still maintain that sensitive tip.

Best wishes on the hunt op....

Thanks guys for the info. I was late to collecting a good amount of Cousin's Rod before the bad news hit. I am lucky to have a few. I do keep a eye out for more..
