My first fishing gear purchase with Amazon was a Lamiglas Surf King 11 footer Medium Heavy Action rod, which I paired with a Penn Sargus SG7000 Spinning Reel - loaded with a Berkley Trilene 17lb test line. My second purchase was an Akuma Longitude 9 footer Heavy Action rod, which I paired with a Penn Sargus SG6000 Spinning Reel - loaded with a Power Pro 20lb braided line.
I've used them both to Surf fish for Dungeness crabs, rigged with a home made crab snare and a 5oz weight. The Akuma rod performance was better than the Lamiglas when I reeled in the crabs. I had a faster retrieve and less tiring on the arms/hands. I guest, this difference between the medium heavy and heavy action rod.
With this experience - I have ordered the Okuma LC-S 1102H-1 rod, which I will pair with an Okuma Avenger ABF 50 Graphite Bait Feeder Reel.
The craftsmanship for both rods is equally the same - GREAT!!! Deserved five stars, but I will recommend the Okuma rods,...
Great rod for surf fishing. A little heavy for my use but will cast a mile. I striper fish and use it to cast top water plugs to schooling fish.
12-26-11: Well I must say the rod is beautiful, lightweight, and seems very strong, however when I put the 2 parts together I noticed that the second largest guide was not aligned with the other guides. It was the second largest guide that was offset about 1/2 an inch. Of course I re-packed the rod, filled out the return paperwork, printed a label and mailed back this morning. Of course Amazon paid for the return shipping. I recieved a very prompt email from Amazon saying that they have already processed a replacement rod with estimated arrival time 12/30. This is why I do business with Amazon. I do believe this rod will be most excellent for the amount paid. I will provide an update after I recieve the new rod. UPDATE:12-29-11 Well I sent the package baqck via UPS as instructed by Amazon on 12-26-11. I recieved the replacement this afternoon via FedEx 12-29-11. The rod is very nice, I think I will really enjoy it this early spring if not sooner.
