Haven't had a chance to build one of these yet. If they are anything like the rest of the AT lineup, they are a winner for sure. Standard Bushido is my go to for everything...can't wait to get my hands on a 3k

I have built several of these for snook and tarpon. We have even landed 4-5ft bull sharks and drag screaming jacks. Great blank that are durable and affordable.

Anyone in So. California tried them ?
Hi Mike, these were actually designed for SoCal.

I worked on the original 9' 1087, 1088, 1089s (later the 1207, 1208, 1209s) and wanted an updated modern version that was more responsive and versatile than all previous offerings. They are incredible for plastics, bait and iron geared toward local inshore/nearshore longer or lighter rod techniques for calico/sand bass, barracuda, sea bass, and yellows and so on, with a lot of guys using them for tuna, dorado etc. as well. Their true versatility shows through the usage from FL thru the NE as well as being great large swimbait rods from bass to European pike fishing.
