10XD on a 7' medium power rod?
I throw it on a 7 3" medium power rod. Perfect rod for it
Lob it or throw it? I have broken several rods that I overloaded and it's not a fun experience.
Which 703 M are you fishing?
It depends on your tip. I build my own rods. Throwing it on a MHX high modulas blank, it was a 7'6" medium fast tip. Cutting 3" off the rod makes it even faster tip. You can't just whip it out there like a weightless senko. Not many rods are rated for a 2.5 oz lure. But with a lews tournament pro I can Chunk it pretty far without loading up the rod
