The Curated Take

Matthew W., Fly Fishing Expert
By the Expert Community

This is an excellent surf rod for those looking to cast long distances with ease. It casts very well over sandbars and when aiming for troughs and breaks in the surf where fish feed. It has the necessary backbone to fight big species like bull redfish, black drum, and even many shark species, and it has enough sensitivity to feel the smallest bite from smaller species like pompano and whiting.

Ideal for
  • -Casts with ease and with serious distance
  • -Enough backbone to fight bull reds and even sharks
  • -Accurately casts over sandbars and into troughs where fish feed
Not ideal for
  • -Given that it is 12', the two 6' sections are still rather long and bulky
  • -It is a heavy rod and not meant for casting all day
  • -It can be tiresome when moving around several surf setups on the beach

Fast, knowledgeable, and very helpful.
5 /5
I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
