Does anyone have this rod? I have one of the 5'8" 500g but was thinking of picking up this rod for a multipurpose spinning rig with a saragosa and 65lb braid. Should be under $400 total with line. I love my 500g conventional but casting with it sucks unless you are tossing a 4oz lure. How is the tip on the longer hopper? Does it still have the backbone to handle jigging next to structure? How does it load with 18-20lbs of drag?
