I ordered this rod back in February and finally got around to building it. I am in new Jersey a few blocks from the beach so I was putting this together to throw light jigs for fluke, as well as stripers. Paired perfectly with a vs50 and felt amazing in the hands. Threw everything like a dream. Quickly became my favorite surf rod. Unfortunately, I only got to use it a handful of times before it snapped on me mid cast. Worst part is, it wasn't even close to my guide where I'd be doing a cut off. I'd have felt otherwise about this blank and reviewed it differently if it was a mistake on my part, but it was a break not even close to anywhere I was working, guides were spaced perfectly and static tested over and over before applying epoxy. Mistakes happen, but i won't be buying mhx anymore.
