“I used an 8-weight XST prototype while in Florida for redfish and speckled trout last fall. It was a stiff, fast-action rod with a strong butt section. Casting into the wind was almost a pleasure, and the rod had the right combination of backbone and touch to handle redfish up to 4 pounds and speckled trout in the 24-inch range.” Gary Girth in the Louisville, Kentucky Courier Journal reviews the new XST series rods and reels.
