I have a 6kg jobby that has the tip broken off it and I reckon its one of the nicest rods I have ever had.I caught some good barra,jacks and all sorts of other stuff on it.It was never quite the same after the tip was gone so it got retired.
I think it was the grip configuration that I really liked about the rod the most.

I've got an old Firewolf 5"6 spin rod here somewhere. Think it was won as 1st prize at the first ever Hinze Dam comp which I fished with an old cricket / fishing buddy Git Pryde.
The tip is loose and the cork grip is a bit rotten, but it was an ok rod in its day. A bit if TLC & it will make a good kayak rod.

Pulled it out one day and ran a flyline through it when I left the long rod at home and it did an ok job at short range.

Cheers,

fitz..

i have two and there in good condition, and i still get them out every now and then for use out of the yak. but they dont sit in the holder too well.

the ones i have are a 5"6' 4-8lb and a 5"7' 12-14lb, both baitcast models

could you fill me in with any pros and cons to watch for at all ? how do you find them to use ?
I dont think that many people are very fussed with them so it seems ????

Bushwacker,

  i find the smaller and lighter of the two i have easier to use as its not as stiff as the heavy longer one,

one thing i find is that the reel mount doesnt fit all over head/baitcaster reels,

short one handed operation pistol type grip reasonably easy on the hand, but doesnt allow it to be placed in a conventional
rod holder easily

 hope this is what you were after bushwacker and they are only my opinion and as i said i only get them out every now and then.
