Powertex bass, cracking rod that is fairly powerful. It will cast 5ozs with no problem but 4ozs is a nicer throw. It has a fairly strong tip for being a bass rod that can catch you out sometimes.

Can handle anything that you will catch from the beach and is light enough to hold if needed all day. Probably the rod I use the most over a season.

I also have the PENN PIT VIPER for close in flounder fishing but IMHO the powertex bass to twice the rod PENN is.

I know you will not be disapointed with you purchase. ENJOY :wink:

zziplex all the way now. conoflex in my opinion dont make the same rod twice bt that i mean that the same rod made at different times can vary alot as regards power an weight they are just not cosistent in what they prduce. century rods i just dont trust, but they seem to be getting better, i have got a zziplex xtr sport , xtr 50/50 , primo synchro xl , and a zti all with built in carbon reducers for extra grip. cant fault any of the above.
