I purchased the 885 when I saw it was listed as a Mod/Fast action. When I was going to look for another black to get I found the MHX Product catalog in the learn/ manuals page. MHX lists this blank as a fast action. I told customer service about this when I called them with a question about another product. I told the guy I wasn’t happy & he didn’t seem to care, only saying he would let someone know about it.
The blank was nice and straight with no obvious defects. The action is perfect. Has a nice fast feeling action until a fish is on. The moderate action comes out when fighting the fish. Has no problems pulling out of heavy pads in Florida. Love it and might buy another!
I’m a frog junky and this is absolutely the best frog blank I’ve found so far.
I built this rod for heavy cover frog fishing. It has worked extremely well. I even took it on a few cobia adventures this last year and it worked well throwing 2-3oz jigs. Highly recommend!
