    Hi everyone, finally have in my hands my popping rod I ordered from Fisherman earlier in the year.
    The rod I decided to get after deciphering their website specs was the Giant 86Rs.
    I have a few custom rods of different colors, and the fisherman I decided to go for the orange color, and it came up real nice.
    This was made for my upcoming trip to Fiji next year, and also for land based from the rocks at home, would be more ideal if it had a few more inches for landbased use though, but none the less looking to get out there and give it a go.
    Wanted to give a shout out to all anglers who own fisherman rods who I asked for tips and information for my own rod build. They came from all corners of the world as not many shops in Australia have fisherman in stock to check out.
    Also to Ebbtide tackle for organising this rod for me.

    Cheers

    That's a beautiful rod, is the GT and FISHERMAN a weave?
