its a faster / more stout than the salt HD. Its is a real cannon / fish fighting tool. Not a rod you want to be blind casting all day. Its a rod made for large Tarpon and Palegics. Its not the delicate Tarpon rod for the keys. Its really more of a 13wt in flex in my opinion. Condition is excellent. let me know if this is the rod type you are looking for and i can send photos.
