Rod is an absolute beast for wire dipsey divers. Also works extremely well as a bottom bouncer for walleye.

Great planer board blank. Soft enough in the tip that a running fish won't pull the small crank bait treble hooks out like is done with stiffer blanks. Yes, stout enough to pull the boards through heavier chop. Ferrule walls well built.
