Comments: The tip is supposed to be soft for topwaters. The reason being that it compensates for quick reactions to strikes, setting the hook a split second later. These rods are amazing. I use a 7' 5" MH for my frogs. I throw the Live Target 65's on it just fine, casting it a mile and getting great hooksets at any distance. My hookup ratio on the frog is around 95% with this rod. Shimano cannot be beat.

Comments: Bought the 6'8 MH Topwater rod and I feel the tip is faaaar too soft for topwaters. The rods rated up to 1oz, but with a 5/8 oz lure tied on the tip was sagging. I prefer to use big walkers like Spooks and the such and the rod is just too soft to walk the dog with a heavier lure. After about 8 casts with the rod I'm trying to sell it.
