Oti 5'6 600g 3rd gen.

Oti 5'2 400g

FC monster chocin series 5'4 300g

I have seen some trevalas double over and still not break...
That the one good thing I see in them is that they do not break easily.
Look at how close the line has to be tied to the weight to get it off the ground with the trevalas.

I think the reason was to see how the different rods handled the 15#.

Thanks for the post. I can see many differences in these rods. It could help my decision making in the future.

heh heh, okay i didnt mean my comment with any dis-concern...

i was just wondering why my collection is so limited... :)
I never though my 6'6" would bend that far with 15lbs either...
