Oh yes and it casts beautifully. I fished/caught y-fin & y-tail with it and it handled them with ease.
Just keep in mind these blanks are a lil bit heavier than the other Phenix blanks cuz of the s-glass added to them. By no means are they super heavy. Absolutely not. I sold my Seeker Hercules 80h cuz this was a lil too heavy and replaced it with the Axis 820H. The 820H was faster than the 80H but still not as fast as the othe Phenix Black Diamond or Black Diamond Hybrid.
