Title: Patriot 842
Post by: bob o on January 05, 2013, 01:52:52 PM
well i just ordered all my components for my American Tackle 842. It will be built as a spinning rod, with American Tackles microwave guides in black, split grip handle, with black eva grips. I plan on using this rod with a braid fluor combo for skipping/pitching lightly weighted bullet craws and senkos to docks and other shoreline cover. The action is fast and med to med hvy action, at 7' long i should be able to cast it a long distance if needed as well as a good hard hookset. So with all black components and black wraps it should look pretty cool, i will add some color pins just haven't mad up my mind on what color yet. i'll keep ya posted with pics in the near future
