Carrie and I got a bunch of Thrasher rods. Fucking things are beasts! Lightweight for pussies like me but when ya got the big fishies on they have a ton of backbone yet let you feel the fish movement. Also when using our halibut rods in deep water you can feel the bite even in deep deep water. Don't ever ask Carrie to let you borrow her favorite Thrasher Hali rod nor her Thrasher Pink Tuna Live Bait rod. She has taken to carrying a small gaff hook on her knife belt just for those occasions that someone might try to reach for her Thrasher she told me if I try to use her rods again we will be changing the name of our boat to Testical Strike!
