Comments: 6'8" MH just got one of these from shimano as a warranty replacement for a Crucial 'reaction top water' unfortunately the action of this line is very stiff for my purposes with this rod. I'm not impressed at all, this rod would probably be nice for use with bass jigs or a Texas rig ex. But not at all the kind of action I would prefer for a top water lure or jerkbait. Bring back the reaction series shimano!
