This is a 3 power 9’ rod. What color is the blank? I have some 490s in brown blanks they are older models. I fish them off downriggers with no problems. They are my kid’s favorite rods. Long enough but not so long they have a hard time controlling them.
The 3 power would probably be fine unless you run into some larger kings.
Thanks for input, I'm going to go for it, it comes with a shimano calcutta reel and a quantum reel as well, both lefties! It's an older brown one, looks like it's barely used. I tied into a king last year that was over 30, my kenai kwik 9'3"was a little light , but got him to the boat. Had to release him as we were in front of Hoquiam in the bay.
