    I was given a 8ft GUSA monster mag in spinning config. for Xmas. Has any one used this rod before and how do you think it will hold up casting poppers...

    i have the URS series of the same blank wrapped conv. it might be a real nice blank for poppers. the URS is a little softer, btu both are good blanks

    Hey LEXPRO!

    I had a couple of popping rods based on the 7' MonMag GUSA and one 7' on the United or Hastings blank.

    I loved them! They load well even with a short 2 oz. striper topwater lure I sometimes threw for YFT.
