Okuma's 2 NEW Popping Rods!

Okuma for years has a solid history of asking local anglers on what will or won't work for certain species in different localities. This alone sets this company apart from all others. The NEW Popping Rod Series is no different. A MH & H at 8'3" was developed. 2pc at 70/30. In this review i'll be field testing the MH rod. I tried 3 spinning reels The NEW Cedros 2020 Carbon Spinners with Eminent Braid by Soft Steel.

These are the stats-
Model# Fore Grip Handle Line Weight Lure Weight #Guides RearGrip Len Power Oz Taper
HWP-S-832 6-1/2in A-Style 30-65lb 30-160g 6 + Tip 18in 8'3" MH 13.5 M/MF

HWP-S-832HA " " 50-100lb 90-200g " " " H 14.4 "

These rods can also double for Surf Rods as well.
